Heres a good read: https://www.northjersey.com/story/sports/mlb/mets/2018/06/19/ny-mets-brandon-nimmo-combining-plate-discipline-power/713644002/

 

"Nimmo has since moved closer to the plate and also eliminated his stride. He's also benefited from information regarding launch angle passed along to him by former Mets hitting coach Kevin Long and current Mets hitting coach Pat Roessler.

 

Those two informed Nimmo he was hitting balls hard enough to put them in the stands, but he needed to elevate pitchers rather than hit them on the ground.

 

Nimmo's fly-ball rate is up to 44.8 percent from 32.8 percent last year, and his ground-ball rate has decreased from 42.9 percent to 34.5 percent per Fangraphs.com..."

Dodged a bullet. Was removed from today's game after a HBP on the hand.

 

The results? MRI came back clean. Thank the lord.

His was hit on that hand twice today. The first time they called it a strike because he deliberately put his hand out. Second time this week he's done that and got called for it. He better be careful because pitchers are gonna start going after him if he keeps doing that. As much as I like this kid, sticking that hand out is bush league and he may get hurt because of it.

Too many lefties.

 

The Mets have faced six lefty starters over their past nine games.

 

Agree but that's the recipe to beat them isn't it? Just pouring lefties at them as their few competent hitters are also left-handed. 

They need Yoenis back.

Xrays came back clean but he's still going for an MRI tomorrow. Left the ballpark in a splint. Call me crazy but I think something is wrong here. 

Hopefully any swelling didnt cause the x-rays to show no breaks and I think MRI's are a pretty standard follow up and obviously a second look. I'm cautiously optimstic the splint was precautionary as they still need to run more tests.

You do realize Xrays are different from MRI's?  The MRI isn't scheduled until tomorrow.

Typo on my end. My bad guys. I meant X-Ray obviously.

 

Still good news though. I was bracing for the worst right away. Fingers still crossed for the MRI.

I have initial concern now after reading the NY Times article. I didnt realize it was the knuckle on his pinky finger that was struck and when he took a dry swing at his next AB he felt immediate pain. It also doesnt help that two other Mets players sustained hand injuries which x-rays were negative but the MRI later showed a fracture. Lots of small bones and ligaments in the hand.

About a month ago Syndergaard was supposed to miss one start with a finger issue.   We have not heard from him since.

 

I don't think the Mets training staff is good with finger issues.
