Good Fundies: Brandon Nimmo’s Incredible On-Contact Skills; Can It Last?

Exit velocity is only part of the story (along with launch angle, situational hitting, luck, etc.) but Nimmo’s results on-contact so far have been nothing short of elite. On just 226 balls in play, Nimmo has tallied 91 hits, 21 doubles, 8 triples, and 15 HR. That’s an extra base hit a whopping 19.4% of the time.

Is Brandon Nimmo an All-Star?

Through the first third of the season, the left-handed batter has earned himself a .294 batting average, and a more-than-respectable OPS of 1.033. These numbers are even more impressive when you consider that Nimmo did not have a ton of playing time throughout the first third of the season.

Nimmo started 2018 as a bench player behind Yoenis Cespedes, Juan Lagares (who was keeping center field warm for an injured Michael Conforto), and Jay Bruce. Nimmo would see some time in center as Lagares was more of a defensive player, while Nimmo himself was more known for his on-base presence but starts were scarce for the Wyoming native.

When Nimmo did start for manager Mickey Callaway, all he did was find a way to get himself on base. Early in the season, Nimmo was all about getting deep into counts. He was using his patience more than his power to help out his ball club, and it was working.
