Mets call up Corey Oswalt, option Gerson Bautista to Double-A

Mets call up Corey Oswalt, option Gerson Bautista to Double-A

The right-hander makes his second stint with the Mets this season, and he might actually get into a game this time. the Mets have called up Corey Oswalt from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned young flamethrower Gerson Bautista back down to Double-A Binghamton. Oswalt was first called up to the big leagues on April 10 at the expense of Brandon Nimmo. Oswalt had been called up in case the Mets needed to use an extra arm in the bullpen for the game before Zack Wheeler’s first start of the season the following night. Oswalt warmed up, but he was not used in the game. The Mets sent him back...

Brandon Nimmo doesn’t seem to mind his role on the Mets

Brandon Nimmo doesn’t seem to mind his role on the Mets

He’s not getting regular at-bats yet, but the youngster is having a blast in the majors. Mets fans threw a big stink when Brandon Nimmo was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas last week, but it turned out to be no big deal at all, as the former first-round draft pick was back in the majors by Friday. Then, on Sunday, Nimmo got his first big league start since April 3 and made the most of it, slugging a triple and a home run while scoring two of New York’s three runs in their walk-off victory over Milwaukee. It’s still a small sample size, but with a .381 career on-base percentage in 265...

Mets Morning News for April 16, 2018

Your Monday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets It seemed the Sunday curse would once again rear its head when the Mets left a ton of runners on base against Brewers’ starter Jhoulys Chacin. Noah Syndergaard was dominant, but the slim 1-0 lead he left the game with was immediately erased after some sloppy play by the infield. However, the Brewers’ lead didn’t last long once again. Brandon Nimmo tied it up with a solo home run which set the stage for Wilmer Flores to send everyone home happy with a walk-off home run. The Nationals now come to...

Nimmo willing to take on any role to help Mets be 'a World Series team'

Despite starting for only the fourth time this season, Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo continued his hot start by going 3-for-5 with a home run and a triple in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The odd man out in Mets’ outfield isn’t playing like it

As Brandon Nimmo stepped to the plate with one out in the eighth inning of a tie game Sunday at Citi Field, his Mets teammates urged him toward one goal. A double. A double? Even Nimmo wore a quizzical look. Then the light bulb went off. Nimmo already had singled, tripled and homered, his first...

Todd Frazier hits two home runs, bullpen strong again

It was a nail-biter at Citi Field and the Mets came out on top for their ninth straight to keep the winning streak alive. This particular Friday the 13th did not start out so great for the Mets. In the same day we learned that Travis d’Arnaud has elected to have Tommy John surgery, it was revealed that an MRI showed Kevin Plawecki’s hand is indeed broken and he will be sidelined for at least a few weeks. Cue Jose Lobaton immediately hopping on a flight to New York and arriving in time to be the starting catcher for tonight’s game, hitting eighth in the lineup. Brandon Nimmo, too, was...

The Mets’ infield veterans are proving their worth on multiple fronts

The Mets’ infield veterans are proving their worth on multiple fronts

Cabrera and Gonzalez are providing the team ample time to let prospects mature. Earlier this week, Brandon Nimmo was sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas. While this was not a popular move with Mets fans, and for good reason, it illustrated something that has been quite obvious over the first two weeks of the season: the veterans that the Mets brought in or retained this offseason have paid off thus far. As of October 2017, it felt absolutely possible, if not probable, that the Mets would be their typical, thrifty selves over the winter, which would lead to this year being a sink or swim season...

Paul Sewald is the top candidate to get sent to Triple-A when Zack Wheeler is called up on Wednesday

The right-handed relief pitcher has made just one appearance this month. The Mets made a shocking move on Tuesday, sending down fan-favorite center fielder Brandon Nimmo and calling up right-handed pitching prospect Corey Oswalt. While some fans are excited to see how Oswalt might fare in the big leagues, the internet rage you’ve heard on Twitter all afternoon revolves around the player who was demoted. Nimmo hasn’t had anywhere to play since Michael Conforto returned to the lineup last week, but he was off to an awfully hot start, going 3-for-9 in six games with four walks and just one...

The Mets are making a mistake with Brandon Nimmo

The Mets are making a mistake with Brandon Nimmo

Sending down the reserve outfielder after a solid start seems unjustified. This afternoon, the Mets announced that they were recalling Corey Oswalt and optioning Brandon Nimmo to Triple-A Las Vegas. The move came as a surprise, given that Nimmo has hit .333/.600/.444 (216 wRC+) in the early going as a part-time player. Nimmo is definitely buried on the depth chart, stuck behind two stars in Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto, another solid player in Jay Bruce, and a veteran in Adrian Gonzalez that has performed well to date and should get a longer look to bounce back from a couple of...
