MLB Rumors: Brandon Nimmo and the New York Mets have agreed to terms on an eight year, $162 million deal, per multiple reports.
This deal keeps Nimmo with the Mets — the team that drafted him #13 overall in 2011, and the only team he has played for — through his age 37 season. Nimmo has spent the bulk of his career in center field, though he will likely have to move to a corner in the next few years. He is a career .260/.385/.441 hitter, and had a career-best 5.1 bWAR in 2022.
This is a significantly bigger deal that I think was expected, though a weak pool of free agent outfielders no doubt helped in that regard.
