5. OF Brandon Nimmo
Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 50 | Run: 50 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50Another guy who Mets fans finally got to see in major league action last season, Nimmo has shown consistent improvements in his hitting abilities in every one of his professional seasons.
He has finally filled out his 6-foot-3 frame, sitting at 205 pounds now, and the power has followed as expected. Nimmo cracked 25 doubles, eight triples and 11 home runs in just 97 games at Triple-A last season, while still maintaining a .352 average and a near 1.000 OPS in the process.
MLB pitching was also not too overwhelming for the 23-year-old, as he managed to hit .274 in 80 plate appearances, scoring 12 runs and hitting a homer as well during that span.
So with a trade of either Granderson or Jay Bruce appearing to be imminent, expect Nimmo to see some time in all three outfield spots next season for the team in Queens.
