Durability has helped Mets' Brandon Nimo take his game to 'another level'

Buck Showalter had no previous experience with Brandon Nimo before coming to the Mets this season, but the durability of the team's strong leadoff hitter is an issue. I knew it was of his career.

Nimmo was out of the lineup against the Reds on Tuesday night after appearing in his 102nd of his first 110 games for the team. It is already the second time in his seven seasons at Flushing that Nemo has exceeded his 100th appearance, but the first since his 140th appearance in 2018.

There are many things to compare. But when I started working here, I had a lot of things to consider. One of them was the games played and some of the operating modes and load management these guys have done in the past. Of course. '' said Showalter before the game. “I get it every day, and I talk to my employees about it, and we have different perspectives on it.

”When it comes to Brandon, He's taken his game to another level on the field, and part of that is his endurance and knock-on-wood."

The 29-year-old center fielder has missed the last few years with hamstring, finger and hip injuries. . Nemo was the team's leading hitter in 98 of 99 starts this season, but Showalter replaced right-hander Mark Canya in Tuesday's game against Reds left-hander Mike Minor.

Nemo posted a .371 batting average and a .933 OPS in nine games in August, pushing his season-wide thrashing line to .271/.355/. I recorded my score. He is second most on the team until Monday, behind Francisco Lindor, 70.

His agent, Nimmo, said last month that the team would like to keep him on a long-term contract beyond this season, his agent Nimmo said last month. , told The Post.

"They're very interested in me being in the Met after this year, but they're going to stay away from that story until the end of the season," Nemo said on July 30. said in Miami. our. To be honest, I'm only thinking about winning now.

"I don't know where it leads, but I know they're interested in it, and I've expressed that from the back office to the front office.

Showalter said earlier this year that other members of the organization were criticizing Nemo, the organization's first-round draft pick (13th overall) from Wyoming in 2011. I saw firsthand what I raved about.

"Everybody loved him, and he's a player who's getting better and better," Showalter said. "Looking at some of the background to his iterations and exposure to baseball, it seems like some of these guys started playing baseball at the age of 4 or 5, while others burn out after a while. I actually like people who pick it up later.

"He has a strong desire to get better at everything. He's very motivated. He's the same guy every day." He speaks with confidence and I think there is a lot more right and wrong with what he knows now, and if he turns a little sideways, he shortens the bad time and lengthens the good time."
