In the tournament, Nimmo’s injury-riddled past came back to haunt him when he strained his hamstring. He did not resume playing for a month, and when he did, it was in Las Vegas. Nimmo returned to the majors in June, but went back on the disabled list just three weeks later with a collapsed lung. Overall, he hit.260 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 69 games in 2017. In only 62 games entering yesterday, Nimmo has hit 12 home runs and 22 RBIs in 2018. In undoubtedly his breakout year, Nimmo has also recorded seven stolen bases.

With all the injuries in the Mets lineup, Nimmo has finally gotten healthy, and has gotten his chance to shine at the major league level. If he can stay healthy, he could match his current pace for 27 home runs, 50 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases, not bad for a player the Mets probably expected to be their fourth or fifth outfielder this season. He is hitting.284, but, more important, he has an on-base percentage of.407, and an OPS of.992, exemplifying the Moneyball idea that a walk is just as good as a hit. Fans may also know that Billy Beane’s predecessor in Oakland was…you guessed it, Sandy Alderson.

We’re here to play the best football players that give us a chance to win on Sunday.

While the approach is good in theory, two factors must be taken into account. 

First, the Jets already have two veteran options in Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater ahead of Darnold. Bridgewater may be nearly three years removed from his last NFL start, but he’s impressed during organized team activities and minicamps, according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta. 

Second, Darnold Authentic Shelby Miller Jersey turned 21 earlier this month. The USC product is viewed as a natural because he throws with anticipation, regularly creates something out of nothing and doesn’t fold during crunch time. But he redshirted a year before taking over the Trojans offense and should have the same opportunity with the Jets. 

Matter of fact, Boone acknowledged after Thursday’s game that Frazier could stick around once Gardner is back playing.

Yeah, I think there’s an avenue for that, Boone said. We’re kind of just day by day right now based on different guys and our needs in the pitching and how many (relievers) we want to keep, (but) he’s taking advantage of Jack Johnson Authentic Jersey opportunities.
