Mets 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo made his Major League debut in 2016, and did some very good things in limited playing time.

Brandon Nimmo was selected #13 overall by the Mets in the 2011 MLB Draft. The team and fans had high hopes for Nimmo at the time, but he made his way through the minors fairly slowly.

With the team facing injuries and struggling offensively in 2016, Nimmo finally made his major league debut in May, five years after he was drafted. Nimmo, a native of Cheyenne, Wyoming, provided some energy off the bench and had a few big moments in 2016, and proved that he has a chance to be a useful piece moving forward.

Nimmo’s energy and constant smile endeared him to Mets fans right out of the gate, but what does he bring to the table as a player?
