People mostly were writing off Nimmo bc he hadn't had any monster seasons in the minors that gave people confidence. But very often players put things altogether only after they get to the show. Nimmo could (hopefully) fall into that bucket as he's got more refining to do.


A number of people here didn't like Nimmo in 2015 because he didn't show much that year, but he was also playing with nagging injuries. I wrote it off and said "hope he gets back to his 300 plus hitting which he'd flashed in 2013/2014 and he did with his batting title in 2016.

Urena is the best current example. Wrist injuries really slowed him down for a couple years. Question is whether he can return to being a top 10 prospect. He still has a ways to go.

I believe you said .340 hitting.

He hit .237 this year.

Well, he did flirt with .340 hitting 2013 and 2014 and hit .350 in 2016, so I might have been onto something.

Nimmo's numbers in Vegas this year were strangely bad after hitting like .370 over the final 5 months last year. No idea what was up with that, but he did OK in the majors so, it's just a blip on the radar if he does OK in the show.

Lots of guys had down numbers in Vegas this year. Maybe the Umps started calling a bigger strike zone or something to keep the scoring down. (just throwing that out there).
