RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A former first-round pick, Nimmo got his first extended look at Triple-A Las Vegas to open up the season, and after excelling there, he got his first taste of big league action. The 23-year-old wrapped up his minor league campaign with sparkling numbers, hitting .352 with a .964 OPS and 11 home runs in 97 games. He suffered through a bit of a drop off once he got to the majors, which was to be expected following his stellar showing at Triple-A. The most concerning aspect, however, was the reemergence of his free swinging ways -- a problem that plagued him early in his career but had seemingly improved as he moved up the organizational ranks -- to the tune of striking out in 25 percent of his plate appearances. If he's able to correct that issue, Nimmo looks to be on an upward trajectory and will likely be deployed as a spare outfielder on the major league roster.

2015

The former 13th overall pick in the 2011 draft out of high school in Cheyenne, Wyoming, is finally starting to show flashes of that pedigree. His .322/.448/.458 slash line in 279 plate appearances at High-A St. Lucie turned heads, primarily because of an approach that yielded a 51:50 K:BB ratio. However, he met his match after advancing to Double-A Binghamton, where his BABIP regressed from .401 to .283, and as a result, he posted much more pedestrian numbers. Nimmo profiles as a Daniel Nava-type of big leaguer (the 2013 version), offering more value in OBP leagues and in real life, as the power and speed production will probably always be below average. The Mets will likely send him back to Double-A to start 2015, and if he can redeem himself, he should finish the season at Triple-A, with a chance to make a big-league impact in 2016.

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.
