The New York Mets’ outfielder Brandon Tate Nimmo was born on March 27, 1993, and he is an American professional baseball player (MLB). During the 2011 MLB draft, the New York Mets selected him in the first round.
Having experienced left quad soreness, Brandon Nimmo, the Mets’ center fielder, left Wednesday’s game against the Brewers in the bottom of the first inning. Following a leadoff single and a successful steal of second base in the top of the first, Nimmo was removed from the game when Rowdy Tellez popped out to the shallow left and was caught by Jeff McNeil. During the play, Nimmo was jogging rather than running. Nimmo walked into the dugout after a discussion with the trainer and Buck Showalter.
Nimmo was replaced by Mark Canha in the center field. Nimmo, a 29-year-old outfielder, is currently batting.264 with 14 home runs, 28 doubles, 7 triples, 56 runs batted in, and an OPS of.776.

After leaving the game in the bottom of the first inning on Wednesday with left quadriceps discomfort, Nimmo didn’t appear overly concerned about the injury and was scheduled to have an MRI on Thursday. Due to the Mets’ day off before Friday’s series opener in Oakland, the 29-year-old will have at least 24 hours to get back to 100 percent.
As a member of Team Italy, Brandon Nimmo will compete in the World Baseball Classic. Nimmo hurt his right hamstring at the World Baseball Classic. Due to the injury, he was not included on the Mets’ Opening Day roster, and he started the season in the minors until eventually making his way back up.
As a result of injuries to Juan Lagares and Matt Harvey on June 16, Nimmo and Matt Reynolds were called up to the Major Leagues from Las Vegas. Nimmo had a hot start to the season, slashing.350/.458/.400 in his first 24 at-bats.
But on July 8 he went on the disabled list after suffering a collapsed lung, and he wouldn’t be back until July 28. Throughout the 2017 season, Nimo played in 69 games for the Mets and hit.260/.379/.418 with 5 home runs.
Nimmo’s hitting instructors Kevin Long and Pat Roessler urged him to attempt it toward the end of the season. To improve his hip rotation, Nimmo followed the advice and turned out his front foot. Before that August, Nimmo’s career slugging percentage was.346. In September, he slugged.479, and during the first two months of the 2018 season, he has shown greater power, slugging.500 or better in each of those periods.
