Mets Single-A OF prospect Brandon Nimmo left Tuesday’s game with a sprained left ankle, according to reporter Adam Rubin (ESPN, May 27).
1:02 p.m.: Nimmo caught his spike in the grass and sprained his ankle. He was removed for precautionary reasons. He is day-to-day (McCarthy, May 28).
Nimmo, 21, cut off a double in the gap and came up wincing in pain.
Nimmo left the game, though Rubin says he managed to walk off the field under his own power.
