Nimmo went 2-for-4 with triple, a run scored and two RBI in Saturday's spring win over the Red Sox. Nimmo, who was limited to serving as the designated hitter earlier in the week due to right shoulder soreness, has returned to action in the outfield for the Mets over the past couple days. It's been a bit slow going this spring for the 25-year-old thus far, as he is 4-for-19 with six strikeouts following Saturday's game.
Nimmo is starting in the outfield and batting leadoff Thursday in the Mets' Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Nimmo experienced soreness in his right shoulder earlier in camp, prompting the Mets to delay his usage in the outfield. He had been scheduled to make his defensive debut exactly one week earlier, but those plans were pushed back when Nimmo fell victim to a virus. After taking the weekend off to recover, Nimmo entered the lineup at designated hitter earlier this week and will now be ready to resume his regular duties in the field.
Nimmo (illness) will serve as the Mets' designated hitter in Monday's spring game against the Red Sox, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports. The Mets have not released their lineup for Sunday's exhibition contest just yet, but this report indicates he will remain out one more day before seeing his first action of the spring season.
Nimmo (illness) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Astros, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports. There was a report Friday that Nimmo would be making his return to the lineup Saturday, but he is apparently still under the weather. Juan Lagares will man center field and hit ninth.
Nimmo (illness) is not in the lineup for Friday's spring game against the Tigers, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Nimmo was set to make his spring debut in the outfield Thursday but ended up being sent home. It was previously reported the illness was due to eating undercooked chicken, but his wife Chelsea tweeted Friday that test results revealed he is dealing with a virus. Nimmo resumed working out Thursday but may need a couple more days before being able to step into the lineup.
