Nido is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
With James McCann logging more reps at first base of late, Nido has enjoyed a near-everyday role behind the plate. However, catching in eight of the last 11 games, Nido's run of steady playing time looks to be over after Pete Alonso (hand) was reinstated from the injured list. With Alonso taking over as the Mets' primary first baseman, McCann will begin logging more time behind the dish.
Nido went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.
Nido took Chi Chi Gonzalez deep in the sixth inning to tally his third long ball of the year while giving the Mets the lead for good. The 27-year-old continues to shine while filling in for James McCann behind the plate, making six starts over the last eight games and going 7-for-20 with two home runs during that span. Across 19 games this season, Nido is batting .260/.315/.520.
Nido went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Tuesday in the Mets' 3-1 win over Atlanta.
Valued mainly for his work as a game caller behind the dish, Nido came through with a rare big day at the plate for a Mets offense missing several key contributors due to injury. The three-hit outing was the first of Nido's career, but he's unlikely to be rewarded with an uptick in starts so long as No. 1 backstop James McCann is available. McCann had started eight of the previous nine games before getting a much-needed breather Monday.
Nido went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
Nido didn't see action during the first game of the twin bill but made his presence felt in Game 2, as he was one of three players with two hits and two RBI while also going deep for the first time in 2021. The 27-year-old backstop only has 16 at-bats this season, however, and the lack of playing time certainly conspires against his fantasy upside.
Nido has seven plate appearances through six games to begin the season, going 1-for-6 with a triple and a strikeout.
James McCann has seen a heavy workload in the early going, but he's still been able to get plenty of rest thanks to the Mets' erratic schedule. That's left few opportunities for Nido to slot into the lineup, but the 27-year-old will be needed more often over the summer. His career .559 OPS in 102 big-league games doesn't give him much fantasy appeal even as a DFS punt option, however.
Nido (foot) will catch and bat ninth for the Mets in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
Nido will re-enter the Mets' spring lineup for the first time since March 7 after being withheld from action for just over a week with a bruised left foot. The 26-year-old looks on track to enter the season as the top backup to No. 1 catcher James McCann.
Nido (foot) is in catcher's gear and caught a pregame warmup for Sunday's scrimmage, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
The 26-year-old was already cleared to hit after after fouling a ball off his left foot a few days ago, and it appears he's nearing a return to game action behind the plate. The injury appears to be a minor concern, so Nido's availability for Opening Day shouldn't be affected.
Nido (foot) is expected to be ready to hit Sunday but isn't quite ready to catch, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Nido was scratched from Friday's lineup after fouling a ball off his foot the day before. X-rays were negative and he's already able to hit, so there's little reason to fear for his readiness for Opening Day.
Nido was scratched from the lineup ahead of Friday's game against the Marlins due to a left foot contusion, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The reason for Nido's removal wasn't initially clear, but it sounds like he isn't dealing with anything serious. He fouled a ball off his foot during batting practice Thursday, but X-rays were negative. The injury shouldn't meaningfully impact his preparation for Opening Day.
Nido was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against Miami for undisclosed reasons, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Nido is expected to back up James McCann behind the plate this season. It's not yet clear if he's dealing with something that could send him to the injured list to start the season. Non-roster invitee Caleb Joseph will start in his place Friday and could potentially earn a roster spot if Nido is indeed dealing with a long-term issue.
Nido (undisclosed) has been cleared to resume baseball activities and returned to the Mets' player pool Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Nido landed on the injured list in late August for undisclosed reasons, though it appears to be COVID-19 related. He should be ready to go before too long, though Robinson Chirinos has since joined the team, which could mean Nido is no longer needed.
Nido was placed on the injured list Tuesday for an undisclosed reason, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The team is not specifying which IL Nido is being placed on; reading between the lines, it seems his absence could be COVID-19 related. Pat Mazeika was recalled to take his spot on the active roster.
Nido went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a grand slam in Thursday's 8-2 win over the Nationals.
Nido gave the Mets a 3-1 lead with a two-run long ball off Austin Voth in the fourth inning and broke the game open an inning later with a grand slam against Seth Romero. Nido has only played in five games while serving as Wilson Ramos's backup, but with his big day Thursday, the backstop is now slashing a solid .308/.400/.385 on the campaign.
Nido got the start behind the plate Tuesday and hit ninth, going 1-for-4 with two strikeouts.
Wilson Ramos was still in the lineup but at DH, allowing Nido to make only his third start of the season. The 26-year-old has gone 3-for-10 in those starts, but as long as Ramos is healthy, playing time will be scarce for his backup.
Nido has gone 2-for-16 (.125) with a 1:6 BB:K to begin the spring.
The 25-year-old came into camp the favorite to win the No. 2 catching job behind Wilson Ramos, and while Nido hasn't done anything to distinguish himself at the plate, his main competition Rene Rivera hasn't made a big impact either. Expect the battle to be won by whichever receiver the pitching staff prefers working with rather than the offensive contribution they can make.
Nido (concussion) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Phillies.
Nido had been symptom-free for a handful of days since he suffered his concussion back on Aug. 24. He'll slot back in as the No. 2 catcher on the depth chart behind Wilson Ramos.
Nido (concussion) has been cleared to begin baseball activities, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Nido landed on the 7-day injured list over the weekend after taking a backswing off his helmet and suffering a concussion. He's been symptom-free for several days now, however, clearing the way for him to start working his way back into game shape.
Nido has been placed on the seven-day injured list after entering concussion protocol, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Nido was hit in the head on the backswing of Josh Donaldson and was forced to exit Friday's contest. He's apparently experienced concussion symptoms since, and he'll head to the injured list. Rene Rivera is expected to join the big-league club in Nido's absence.
Nido left Friday's game against the Braves after getting hit in the head by a Josh Donaldson back swing, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Nido was able to remain in the contest after being examined by team trainers, though he was ultimately lifted and is likely being evaluated for a concussion. Wilson Ramos replaced Nido behind the dish.
Nido went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs Sunday in the Mets' 11-5 win over the Royals.
Nido's first double of the game came in the seventh inning and ended an 0-for-24 stretch for the backup catcher. While his performance in the series finale was an encouraging step forward, Nido isn't expected to eat into Wilson Ramos' playing time very much while the Mets remain in the hunt for a wild-card spot.
