Nido went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Phillies.
His bases-loaded double in the fifth inning proved to be the game-winning hit for the Mets. Nido's picked up two hits in three of his last four starts and is slashing .333/.357/.481 over his last seven games, but that's a span that stretches all the way back to June 18 as he remains behind Wilson Ramos on the depth chart.
Nido went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.
The 25-year-old backup to Wilson Ramos has seen an uptick in his playing time recently, starting four of the last eight games, but Nido's .227/.250/.379 slash line on the year with three homers and seven RBI still doesn't make him much of a fantasy asset. It would likely take a Ramos injury to get Nido on the radar in most formats.
Nido went 1-for-2 with a walkoff solo home run in the 13th inning against the Tigers on Saturday.
Entering as a pinch hitter in the 11th, Nido flew out in his first at-bat, but he ended the game with a deep fly two frames later. It was only his second home run of the season, but both have come in his last six games. Nido is hitting .194 with three extra-base hits, five RBI and two runs in 31 at-bats this season.
Nido went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts before being lifted for Wilson Ramos in the seventh inning of Wednesday's win over the Nationals.
The Mets' backup catcher has gone 4-for-22 (.182) in May with nine strikeouts in eight games, although he does have a homer and two RBI. Barring an injury to Ramos, Nido's playing time and fantasy value will remain erratic at best.
Nido went 1-for-1 with a double and two RBI in a pinch-hit appearance Sunday against Milwaukee.
Nido was called on in the eighth inning to pinch hit and chose a good time for his first knock of the 2019 season, delivering a two-run double to right field that extended New York's lead to three. The 25-year-old backstop was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse earlier in the day and will serve as the backup catcher moving forward after Travis d'Arnaud was designated for assignment.
Nido was recalled by the Mets on Sunday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Nido started the season as the Mets' backup catcher but was bumped to Triple-A Syracuse in early April when Travis D'Arnaud returned from the 10-day injured list. With D'Arnaud disappointing to the point that he was designated for assignment Sunday, Nido will again fill the spot.
The Mets optioned Nido to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.
New York didn't have a need to keep Nido around with Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) returning from the 10-day injured list and ready to step in as the backup to No. 1 catcher Wilson Ramos. Nido made two appearances during his brief stint with the big club to begin the season and went 0-for-6 at the plate.
Nido appears set to make the Mets' Opening Day roster following Saturday's round of cuts, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The Mets reassigned Devin Mesoraco to the minors Saturday, leaving Nido, Wilson Ramos and Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) as the only backstops left at big-league camp. D'Arnaud doesn't look on pace to be ready for the start of the regular season, so if he moves to the injured list, Nido would break camp with the club as the backup to Ramos. That role wouldn't afford Nido more than a couple starts per week, so he won't merit much consideration even in NL-only formats. Nido is held in higher regard for his solid defense and quality arm behind the plate rather than anything he offers offensively.
Nido underwent Lasik surgery in the offseason, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old had noticed his vision growing blurrier over the last couple of seasons, particularly when turning his head to hit, prompting the procedure. "Going from seeing everything blurry to now seeing everything detailed, that's what I'm getting used to now," Nido said. "It's a night and day change." The acquisition of Wilson Ramos cuts off any chance Nido had of breaking camp with the Mets, and he's expected to begin the season at Triple-A Syracuse. Even so, neither Ramos nor Travis d'Arnaud is exactly an ironman, so Nido could see his share of action in the majors in 2019.
Nido went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader victory over the Marlins.
Nido's homer was the first of his career in the major leagues, as he sparked the Mets' offense in the fifth inning with the solo shot. He now has at least one hit in five of his last six starts, and he owns a .188 batting average with nine runs and eight RBI over 73 plate appearances in 2018.
Nido went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Giants.
Nido, who appeared in his third game since he was called up from Double-A Binghamton on Aug. 24, laced a Derek Holland offering over Austin Slater's head and plated Brandon Nimmo. With No. 1 backstop Kevin Plawecki on the paternity list this weekend, Nido, one of the Mets' possible options for the future behind the plate, might steal one more start from Devin Mesoraco before Plawecki's activation, which would bump Nido back down to the No. 3 role in the Mets' expanded roster.
Nido will be called up from Double-A Binghamton on Friday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Nido will likely take the roster place of Devin Mesoraco (neck), who appears to be headed for a stint on the DL. Across 21 games with the Mets this year, Nido has hit .159 with a .390 OPS and three RBI in 48 plate appearances. Expect Kevin Plawecki to receive the bulk of the starts behind the plate while Mesoraco is out.
Nido was optioned to Double-A Binghamton on Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.
While Nido has spent time in the big leagues in each of the last two seasons, largely due to the fact he is on the 40-man roster, he belongs at Double-A, as he has played just six games at Triple-A and 107 games at DoubleA. Kevin Plawecki (hand) was activated from the disabled list as a corresponding move.
The Mets recalled Nido from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
Nido was sent to Las Vegas after the Mets' acquisition of Devin Mesoraco earlier in May, but returns to the team with Jose Lobaton now designated for assignment. Nido split catching duties with Lobaton in his previous major-league stint and Mesoraco seems likely to serve as primary catcher this time around, although Nido will still likely have some opportunities.
The Mets optioned Nido to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
With the Mets acquiring Devin Mesoraco from the Reds on Tuesday and presumably prepared to install him as their primary catcher, there wasn't room on the active roster for Nido. The 24-year-old had been splitting time with Jose Lobaton behind the plate since Kevin Plawecki (hand) and Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) hit the disabled list, but failed to make much of an impact offensively, hitting just .135/.179/.162 across 39 plate appearances.
Nido will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Padres, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
Despite having their top two backstops in Kevin Plawecki (hand) and Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) on the disabled list, the Mets have thus far resisted looking outside the organization for help at catcher. That has allowed Nido to stick on the active roster for the past three weeks, with the 24-year-old working in a timeshare with veteran Jose Lobaton behind the plate. Both players have hit under .150 during their stints with the Mets, however, so it will be difficult to rely on either for much aid even in NL-only formats, especially while the duo continues to split time in relatively even fashion.
Nido is in no danger of getting bumped off the 25-man roster for now as the Mets are not pursuing a trade for another catcher, Kristie Ackert of The New York Daily News reports.
The 24-year-old was called up from Double-A Binghamton after injuries sidelined Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) and Kevin Plawecki (hand), leaving Nido as the backup to veteran Jose Lobaton. While Nido has shown flashes of offensive upside in the low minors and was hitting .278 (5-for-18) for the Rumble Ponies before his promotion, he's likely to head back down once Plawecki is ready to return to action in a couple of weeks -- although he does still have a small window in which to impress the Mets enough to keep him in the majors instead of Lobaton as Plawecki's backup.
Nido was called up to the big leagues Wednesday to replace the injured Travis d'Arnaud (elbow), Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.
D'Arnaud has a partially torn UCL which could require Tommy John surgery, in which case Nido could be in the majors for a long time. The 23-year-old has an unremarkable profile and doesn't project to be much more than a backup catcher. He went 3-for-10 in a brief stint in the majors last season, but spent the majority of the year at Double-A Binghamton, where he hit .232/.287/.354 in 404 plate appearances.
Nido was optioned to minor-league camp Friday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki are firmly entrenched as the Mets' top two catchers and Nido has yet to play above Double-A. He will likely head to Triple-A Las Vegas for the minor-league season and then join the big-league club when rosters expand in September, if injuries don't create a spot for him back in New York sooner than that.
Nido was recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Tuesday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.
Nido will get his first taste of the majors now that Binghamton's season is over. The 23-year-old backstop slashed .232/.287/.354 with eight homers and 60 RBI in 102 games for the Rumble Ponies prior to his promotion. Nido -- who was featured in the Futures Game earlier in the year -- is known more for his contact skills (14.9 percent strikeout rate) and strong defensive profile, so he isn't expected to make much of a fantasy impact down he stretch. While he'll likely see an occasional start, this is primarily a learning opportunity for the Mets' top catching prospect.
