Nimmo appeared healthy and productive in spring training before MLB was put on pause, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
The outfielder had a health scare in late February due to an irregular heartbeat, but after Nimmo underwent cardiac tests, the issue wasn't deemed to be one which would affect him on the field. He went out and proved it once he returned to action, posting a .379/.455/.552 slash line through 33 plate appearances. His OBP skills should keep him near the top of the Mets' batting order most days once the regular season begins, and while his fantasy production probably won't jump off the page, he could be a sneaky source of runs as a result.
Nimmo (chest) is back in the lineup Friday against the Cardinals, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nimmo was scratched Wednesday for cardiac tests. Per Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record, tests revealed an irregular heartbeat, but not one which is expected to affect Nimmo's ability to play. The situation appeared potentially worrisome, but he was cleared to return to action the next day and is already back in the lineup, so it doesn't seem as though his preparation for the upcoming season will be significantly impacted.
Nimmo (chest) has been cleared to resume baseball activities, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Nimmo was sent for additional tests by the team's cardiologist, but he's since been cleared to return to action. Expect the outfielder to appear in a spring game within the next few days.
Nimmo's removal from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros for cardiac tests is considered purely precautionary, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Manager Luis Rojas said he didn't know why exactly the team's cardiologist ordered additional tests for the outfielder. The Mets don't currently appear particularly concerned about the issue, though the full picture won't become clear until the tests are complete.
Nimmo was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against Houston to undergo cardiac screening, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
It's unclear what triggered the need for tests. Nimmo's expected return timeline should become clear once the results of the tests are known.
Nimmo was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
No reason for Nimmo's removal was given. He left Saturday's game against the Marlins after getting hit by a pitch. While he returned to the lineup Monday, it's possible the issue is still bothering him.
Nimmo (undisclosed) will start in center field and bat second in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 26-year-old sat out Sunday's game against the Cardinals after being hit by a pitch a day earlier, but the one-day respite was apparently all Nimmo needed to move past the plunking. Nimmo's 2019 campaign was derailed by injury, but now that he's ostensibly healthy again, he looks poised to occupy at least a large-side platoon role in the New York outfield this season.
Nimmo (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Sunday's spring game, according to Tim Healey of Newsday.
Nimmo was removed from Saturday's spring game after being hit by a pitch, and he will get at least one full day to rest and recover before returning to game action.
Nimmo exited Saturday's game against the Marlins for precautionary reasons after getting hit by a pitch, Andersen Pickard of MLB Daily Dish reports.
The Mets don't appear to be concerned about the issue, but the team has little reason not to be overly cautious this early in spring. The nature of Nimmo's minor injury is not yet clear.
Nimmo and the Mets agreed to a one-year, $2.175 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.
Nimmo struggled earlier in the season before a neck injury sidelined him for over half the year. He rebounded well in September, giving him a .221/.375/.407 slash line (114 wRC+) in 69 games overall.
Nimmo is not in the lineup Monday against the Marlins.
Nimmo has started the past seven games and gone 8-for-27 (.296) with three home runs, seven RBI and five runs scored during that stretch. Juan Lagares is starting in center field and hitting eighth against lefty Caleb Smith in Monday's series opener.
Nimmo went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Rockies.
The 26-year-old is hitting only .241 (7-for-29) in 14 games since coming off the injured list at the beginning of September, but Nimmo's 12:11 BB:K has given him a .465 OBP in that span. On the year, he's slashing .208/.369/.384 through 57 contests with six homers and 22 RBI.
Nimmo is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nimmo is getting on base at a .500 clip since his return from the injured list, but this is now three consecutive absences, all against opposing lefty starters. It may be frustrating for fantasy owners, but it makes sense that the Mets would want to limit his workload after Nimmo spent more than three months on the shelf. Juan Lagares is serving as his platoon partner.
Nimmo is out of the lineup for Friday's game versus the Dodgers.
Nimmo finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest and has started six of 12 games since being activated off the injured list at the start of September. The Mets may be taking it easy with the 25-year-old after he spent more than three months on the injured list with a bulging disc in his neck. Juan Lagares receives the start in center field against lefty Clayton Kershaw.
Nimmo is not in Thursday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.
He is hitting .263 with two home runs, 12 walks, eight strikeouts and one steal in 10 games this month. Juan Lagares will start in center field and hit seventh.
Nimmo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
After being reinstated from the 60-day injured list Sunday, Nimmo started in center field in the first two games of the series with Washington, going 2-for-5 with a home run, double, stolen base, three walks, three RBI and two runs between the contests. Though he'll give way to Juan Lagares in the series finale, a healthy Nimmo looks on track to see the bulk of the action at the position in September.
Nimmo (neck) was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday.
Nimmo finished up a 10-game rehab stint with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday and will make a quick turnaround to join the big-league club for the series finale. According to Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News, the 26-year-old should be available off the bench Sunday and is expected to rejoin the starting nine Monday at Washington. Nimmo has been out since May with a bulging disc in his neck and struggled with a .200/.344/.323 slash line in 43 games prior to going down with the injury.
Contrary to a previous report, Nimmo (neck) will not play for Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Nimmo was originally scheduled to play nine innings for Syracuse but will instead get the day off, with his next rehab appearance coming Friday at Triple-A, per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. If everything goes off without a hitch in that appearance, the outfielder could be cleared to rejoin the Mets when rosters expand Sunday.
Nimmo (neck) will make another rehab appearance for Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nimmo has been sidelined since May due to a bulging disc in his neck but appears to be on the cusp of a return. He's appeared in eight rehab games over the past two weeks, though the Mets want to see the outfielder play nine more innings at least once more before activating him.
Nimmo (neck) is slated to play nine innings for Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday and five innings Wednesday before being re-evaluated, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Nimmo has been sidelined since May due to a bulging disk in his neck. The Mets will see how he responds to playing in back-to-back contests before deciding whether he's ready to come off the injured list.
