According to Mike Puma of The New York Post, the Mets are waiting for Brandon Nimmo to play consecutive games with Syracuse, potentially on Tuesday and Wednesday before calling him up by the end of the week.
In a small sample size with the Major League club this season, Nimmo is batting .200/.344/.323/.667 with seven doubles, three home runs, 20 runs scored as well as 14 runs driven in. The outfielder has only played in 43 games while accruing just 130 at-bats.
Nimmo came into Spring Training extremely confident after coming off of a 2018 season in which he broke out and hit .263/.404/.483/.886 with 28 doubles, eight triples, 17 home runs with 47 RBI’s and 77 runs scored in 140 games played.
Unfortunately, after colliding with the wall while making a grab earlier on in the season, the Wyoming native has been suffering from a bulging disc in his neck and has been on the shelf since. With Lagares seeing the ball pretty well at the dish, right now, I wouldn’t mind seeing the two split some time.
