2015

2014

Nimmo began the year on fire, but regressed a bit and was then sidelined for nearly a month due to hand and back injuries. When Nimmo returned in late May, his struggles continued, and despite an August surge, his overall numbers were just so-so. Nimmo's poor contact rate - just 67 percent - resulted in 118 strikeouts in 480 at-bats - but his good eye led to 71 walks. He has a long way to go, given that he didn't play high school ball, but the Mets expect him to fill out, move to left field and possibly be a 15-15 candidate down the road for the parent club. That likely won't happen until 2017, but he should begin 2014 at High-A St. Lucie, a much better hitter's park than Savannah, where he played last season.

2013

Nimmo showed a good eye at the plate while making his debut in the New York-Penn League in 2012, drawing a walk in 15 percent of his plate appearances while carrying a .372 OBP. However, he did not make contact very often (71 percent) and it may take him significantly longer to develop moving through the Mets' system after being drafted out of high school in Wyoming in 2011, which limited his experience to Legion Ball. Given the longer development path, and that his ceiling may not be overwhelmingly high anyway, rostering Nimmo may require a league format with very deep minor league reserves.

2012

The Mets drafted Nimmo 13th overall in 2011 despite that the fact that he did not play high school ball while growing up in Wyoming. He signed for $2.1 million just before the signing deadline, enabling him to play 10 games in rookie ball. Nimmo has been projected to possibly be a Von Hayes-like player, but don't expect him to be ready until 2014 at the earliest as he'll make his full-season debut in April.
