Nimmo (neck) has started throwing and hitting off a tee, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

However, he still has a long way to go before returning to the big leagues, as he'll face a lengthy rehab assignment before being reinstated.
Nimmo (neck) is playing catch and ramping up his running, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports. He is slightly ahead of his timeline, as the Mets said they were shutting Nimmo down for a month back on June 18. He will need to clear several more hurdles on his rehab before being sent for a lengthy rehab assignment. If all goes well, Nimmo could be activated in early-to-mid August.
Nimmo (neck) won't perform any baseball activities for the next month, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nimmo has been on the injured list for nearly a month due to a bulging disk in his neck. He had been on a rehab stint for a week before being shut down again as the problem persisted. He'll now rest for at least another month and won't be resuming activity until after the All-Star break. If things go smoothly for him at that point, he could still play a significant role over the final two months of the season, though it's tough to be confident about any particular return date given the rocky nature of his season so far.
