Player Outlook
Brandon Nimmo re-signed with the Mets on an eight-year, $162 million contract last offseason, and he delivered an impressive campaign in 2023 with 24 homers, 68 RBI, 89 runs and a .274/.363/.466 slash line in 152 games. Most of Nimmo's numbers were nearly identical to his 2022 production, though he clubbed eight more home runs as he set career highs in flyball rate (39.2 percent), barrel rate (9.5 percent) and hard-hit rate (47.7 percent). It's the second straight year he's played in over 150 games, as it appears the durability issues that plagued him earlier in his career are now behind him (though he did spend the final two days of the season on the IL with a shoulder sprain). He's not much of a threat on the bases with three steals in each of the past two seasons, but he otherwise provides fantasy managers with well-rounded production. Assuming the injury concerns are fully behind him, Nimmo should be a top-100 option again in 2024.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Held out again Friday

    Nimmo (illness) remains out of the lineup for Friday's contest in Miami. Nimmo was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to a stomach bug and he's evidently still not feeling well enough to play. With Nimmo resting, the Mets will go with Tyrone Taylor in left field and in the leadoff spot.

In the meantime, DJ Stewart will take Nimmo's place in left field and bat fifth, moving Tyrone Taylor into the leadoff spot.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Returns to lineup Monday

    Nimmo (intercostal) will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's game versus the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nimmo didn't start Sunday's 4-3 win over Atlanta due to right intercostal irritation, but he entered the contest off the bench and eventually clubbed a walk-off, two-run home run in his lone plate appearance. Four of Nimmo's six home runs this season have come over his last 12 games.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Hits walk-off homer Sunday

    Nimmo (intercostal) entered Sunday's 4-3 win over Atlanta in the bottom of the seventh inning and hit a walk-off two-run home run in his lone at-bat. Nimmo was held out of the starting nine due to right intercostal irritation, but he felt well enough to come off the bench and replace DJ Stewart as a pinch runner in the seventh inning. He then manned left field for the final two innings and recorded a pair of outs in the field before slugging a home run off AJ Minter in the bottom of the ninth. Nimmo said during the ESPN broadcast that he expects to play Monday against the Phillies, but fantasy managers will still want to ensure he's included in the lineup prior to the 7:10 p.m. ET opening pitch before activating him.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Injury believed to be minor

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said Saturday that he's "not too concerned" about Nimmo's intercostal injury, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Nimmo tweaked his right intercostal on a checked swing Saturday against Atlanta and eventually exited the game. However, Mendoza said of the injury that "I think we caught it early," and there are no plans to send the outfielder for an MRI. Nimmo will be re-evaluated Sunday but is considered day-to-day for the time being.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Goes deep again

    Nimmo went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Cardinals. Nimmo got the Mets going with a three-run blast off Miles Mikolas in the fifth to knot the game up at 3-3. He's now homered in back-to-back games and has at least a hit in six straight with seven RBI over that span. For the year, the 31-year-old is hitting .229/.377/.412 with five homers, 25 RBI, 20 runs and a 25:32 BB:K in 162 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Belts decisive homer

    Nimmo went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and an additional run scored Monday in a 4-3 win against St. Louis. With the score tied 3-3 in the top of the seventh inning, Nimmo swatted a 415-foot solo shot to right field that provided the winning margin for New York. The veteran outfielder extended his hitting streak to five games, and four of his seven hits over that span have gone for extra bases. Nimmo has lifted his season average to .228 with the hot stretch following a cold start to the campaign.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: On base three times in win

    Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and two RBI in Thursday's extra-innings win over the Cubs. The 31-year-old is coming to life from the leadoff spot, reaching base multiple times in five of his last seven starts and batting .286 (8-for-28) over that stretch with a .394 OBP. Nimmo's .216/.365/.360 slash line on the season remains disappointing for fantasy purposes, but he's chipped in three homers, two steals, 15 runs and 20 RBI in 30 contests.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Getting routine day off

    Nimmo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: On base three times Sunday

    Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Royals. The 31-year-old outfielder shone once again as the Mets' leadoff hitter, capping his day with a bases-loaded walk that brought home the winning run in the eighth inning. Nimmo has reached base safely in all 11 games he's played so far in April, slashing .286/.455/.548 with seven runs, 12 RBI, and six of his 12 hits (three doubles, a triple and two homers) going for extra bases.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Big day in win

    Nimmo went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 16-4 victory over Atlanta. Nimmo extended New York's lead to 2-0 in the second inning with an RBI double before driving in another run with a triple in the eighth. Nimmo has gone 7-for-14 with four extra-base hits in three games against Atlanta after starting the season in a 3-for-29 slump. The 31-year-old outfielder should continue to serve as the Mets' regular leadoff batter after slashing .274/.363/.466 with a career-high 24 homers, 68 RBI and 89 runs scored last season.

He finally got on the board in the home run column, mashing homers off Charlie Morton and A.J. Minter en route to a five-RBI day and the sixth multi-HR game of his career.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Nimmo (hamstring) is starting as the Mets' designated hitter Saturday versus Cincinnati. Minor hamstring tightness prevented Nimmo from playing Friday, but the issue appears to have subsided ahead of Saturday's contest. The 31-year-old outfielder has gone just 1-for-21 through six games to begin the year, though he has still managed to draw six walks.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Sits amid slump

    Nimmo is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Cincinnati, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Nimmo started the Mets' first six games of the season but will receive a day to reset after going 1-for-21 with six walks during that stretch. Tyrone Taylor will take over in left field while Francisco Lindor moves up to the leadoff spot.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Draws five walks in twin bill

    Nimmo went 0-for-5 with five walks and a stolen base in Thursday's doubleheader split with the Tigers. Nimmo didn't get a hit in either contest, but he did his job as New York's leadoff man by drawing five free passes. Given that he's gone just 1-for-21 to start the campaign, it was a positive development for Nimmo's fantasy managers to see him spend some time on the basepaths, though outside of his theft he didn't do anything to provide fantasy value in leagues that don't use OBP as a category. Odds are that Nimmo's bat will eventually come around, as he hasn't batted lower than .274 in a season since 2019.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Could be moved down in lineup

    Nimmo could be moved down in the Mets' batting order this season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. President of baseball operations David Stearns and manager Carlos Mendoza discussed the possibility with Nimmo early in the offseason and co-hitting coaches Jeremy Barnes and Eric Chavez have continued the dialogue in spring training. Nimmo's on-base skills make him a natural fit as a leadoff hitter, but he also showed last season with a career-high 24 home runs that he could have potential as a middle-of-the-order presence. Healey mentions Francisco Lindor, Starling Marte and Jeff McNeil as options to move up to the top of the batting order if Nimmo slides down.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Shifting to left field

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said Monday that Nimmo will move to left field this season while Harrison Bader takes over in center field, Pat Ragazzo of SI.com reports. That's been the assumption, but this is the first time Mendoza has officially addressed it. It makes for a strong defensive outfield for the Mets, giving them three outfielders with extensive center field experience between Nimmo, Bader and Starling Marte. Of course, given Bader's health history, there's a good chance Nimmo will still wind up spending a good amount of time in center.
