From July 9 to August 4, Brandon Nimmo struck out 31 times in 87 trips to the plate for a 35.6 K%. Unsurprisingly, he hit just .183 in that stretch and on the last day of that period, his season-long OPS, which had been over .900 most of the year, fell to .836 for the campaign. But then Nimmo started making more contact and a few days later he started piling up the hits.
Since August 7, Nimmo has a .415/.541/.723 line. He has 18 runs scored and 12 RBIs in 20 games in that span. Also, he’s fanned just 17 times in 78 PA, for a 21.8 K%. The Mets are 13-7 in Nimmo’s last 20 games played.
