Nimmo earns promotion to Triple-A
Less than a week ago the B-Mets roster featured three of the last four of the Mets first round draft picks. After seeing Michael Conforto depart for the big leagues, Binghamton is now saying farewell to Brandon Nimmo.
Nimmo, the Mets first round draft pick in 2011, hit .279 with 2 HR and 16 RBI adding 12 doubles and three triples in 68 games with the Binghamton Mets this year. He missed several weeks due to an ACL sprain. Originally, Nimmo was to spend a lot of time playing right field with Juan Lagares signing a 4-year extension with the Mets. But, whether it's Lagares's struggles at the plate, or Nimmo's injury, he's almost exclusively in center since his return.
Nimmo now heads to the Las Vegas 51s joining an outfield corp already crowded with former B-Mets Jayec Boyd, Carrell Ceciliani, Kyle Johnson, Travis Taijeron, and Cory Vaughn.
