Awhile ago, there was a discussion on the blog about if MLB players could improve their defense. It seems safe to me to say that they can, only the overwhelming majority simply choose not to do that.
Nimmo focused specifically on workouts targeted to make him a better center fielder.
“We’ve worked a lot on my strength and speed,” he said. “Those two have correlated to add a foot per second from 2020 to my sprint speed. And then playing center field more consistently and getting more reads has allowed me to get more comfortable out in center field here. I have a good number of games underneath my belt here at Citi Field, and it helps me to be able to make those plays without being able to look back.”
