I'm not sure what Adam Jones has to do with Nimmo lol.  Unless it was your weak attempt to insult a player way past his prime on a bad team, the worst in baseball actually.  Ouuu you got him there!!!

Do you need to be quoted from earlier in the season where you stated that Jones was better than Nimmo? People don't forget.

That argument would be worth mentioning if Nimmo was still hitting.  But he isn't.  Like, at all.  He's not even walking.

His slump really began after the injury.  He probably still has issues with his hand.  Players won't say anything though even if they are hurt.

Disagree. Especially in a 14 team league. But do what you will.

Is there any legitimate concern that the injury has something to do with this and will continue to linger?

Absolutely.  We don't know though.  No player is immune to lengthy slumps.  

 

Good news is he probably has a long leash with playing time and will be given every opportunity to get out of it.

Coming into today, Nimmo was hitting .305 over the past two weeks with an OBP of .368. Also he just had an injury. That might have something to do with his down week. Just maybe.

 

It's almost like players don't perform exactly the same every week. Mike Trout is hitting .208 over his last 7 games. DROP HIM.

This thread is pretty ridiculous ATM. The guy took an 87 mph cut fastball off the knuckle of his pinkie finger and needed an x-ray and an MRI. Of course he's going to struggle the following week. He was an easy sit for me this week and will be an easy sit again next week. If your league starts 48 or more outfielders there's no reason not to be patient with this guy.  If you want to be reactionary and impatient, go ahead and drop. I'll be happy to pick him up if you play in any of my leagues.

To be fair, it’s only ridiculous due to one individual’s “contributions.”

His K rate increase and BB rate drop started on May 31st to be exact. Its been just over a month...but he hit 7 HRs in  early/mid June so no one cared since the power was still there.  Now this injury has effected the power. So he's been worthless productive wise since..

 

3-29 To 5-30   140 PAs  21 K% to 15 BB%  21 O-Swing

5-31 to Present  117 PAs  37 K% To 7 BB%  25 O-Swing

 

 As you see the O-Swing hasn't moved much. His great batting eye is present still. Its just a matter of pitchers finding a weakness in his patience and 2 strike approach. Using patience against him to quickly get in a pitchers count and he doesn't seem to have a good 2 strike approach to counter it yet. Just a guess though.

Trout is 6-33 with 12 k's in the last 10 games.  Time to cut bait.

 

If you believed in and owned Nimmo before, keep him and ride it out.  If you didnt believe in or own him, then dont worry about it.  He is much better than what is on the WW anyway.  Reminds me of Blackmon years ago when he struggled after his hot start.  People came out of the closet saying "I told you so", and he was a fluke.  Nimmo was a 1st round pick for a reason.  ALL players go through slumps.  Some guy named Goldschmidt went through on and he is one of the best hitters in the game.  Hold tight on Nimmo, he will be fine.  Elite?  No.  But top 40 OF?  Probably

Two actually, lol. I figure both must be trolling...one we know for sure is. 

 

Unless you're in a league with no bench, Nimmo is a guy you bench and play the waiting game with. He has 12 HR and 7 SB in 211 ABs...that's worth waiting on, imho.

He is a week recovered from a finger injury. Even if that wasn't the case...its.a.week.

He probably could have used a 10 day dl stint just to let him rest a bit.  It’s there for teams to use and take advantage of but the Mets don’t do that.

Only 1 hit since returning from his finger injury, maybe there's still some lingering discomfort? Nimmo's a gamer n would likely play with the pain but it may be affecting his swing. He could always just be in a mini slump, he's gone 1-17 with a bunch of K's and then had a blow up week, so maybe this is just simply 'par for the course' for Nimmo.

With that said, I am happy the NYM's only have 5 games this week, at least it'll get him a little extra rest.

It's almost like that 7 game road trip @Az & @Colorado had something to do with his hot streak.

Aside from those 8 games, he still has 8 HR and 6 SB in 179 AB this season, so I'm good with that. That still projects him to close to a 25-20 player over 550 AB. Those 8 games were nice (4 HR, 10 RBI), but they haven't made his season.
