Brandon Nimmo, OF, Double-A Binghamton:

Coming in at No. 52 on the list is Nimmo, who Sickels says needs to show more power during the second half of the season.

So far this year for Binghamton, the 22-year-old is hitting .289/.351/.382 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 56 games played.

Nimmo, who was drafted by the Mets out of high school with the 13th overall selection in 2011, has experienced a huge learning curve in the minors since he never even played organized high school ball before being drafted (due to the fact that there’s no high school ball in Wyoming).

Like Conforto, Nimmo is viewed as a player who’s close, but he’ll likely have to perform a bit better at Double-A before the Mets consider a potential big league callup.
