Brandon-Nimmo

Las Vegas 51s outfielder Brandon Nimmo was named the Pacific Coast League’s Player of the Week for the week ending August 21, 2016.

Over the past week, the 23 year old Nimmo batted .432 (14-for-31) with nine runs, three doubles, one triple, two homers, seven RBI, five walks, and one stolen base.

This is Nimmo’s first full season in Triple-A, and he has a .345/.420/.539 batting line with 55 runs, 21 doubles, eight triples, nine homers, and 53 RBI in 330 at-bats for Las Vegas.

Nimmo’s play in Las Vegas this season, has earned him a 20 game cup of coffee with the big-league team where he hit .237/.297/.288 with one homer, and five RBI.

Nimmo joins fellow Mets prospects T.J. Rivera (May 16- 22 and August 1- 7) and Gavin Cecchini (June 13-19) as PCL Player of the Week winners this season.  Rafael Montero was also honored as Pitcher of the Week back in May.
