BA Hotsheet - #11 - CF - Brandon Nimmo


11. Brandon Nimmo, cf, Mets
Team: high Class A St. Lucie (Florida State)
Age: 21
Why He’s Here: .391/.548/.652 (9-for-23), 7 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 3 RBIs, 8 BB, 4 SO, 1-for 2 SB
The Scoop: Part of St. Lucie’s terrific top-of-the-order trio with Dilson Herrera and T.J. Rivera, Nimmo has turned the corner and then some this season in the FSL. He reached base 17 times this week and has done so in nine consecutive games. He leads the FSL in on-base percentage (.477), runs (44) and walks (45), while ranking second in the batting race (.341) and eighth in slugging (.474). With all-star festivities just a few weeks off, expect Nimmo to play a starring role.

I'm looking forward to his promotion to AA. He might be up at the end of 2015 and take a starting job in 2016.

What a season he's had. He's made a lot of people do a complete 180 on their opinion of him.
