Top ProspectBrandon Nimmo had a hitless weekend, going 0-for-10 Friday-Sunday with seven strikeouts Saturday and Sunday, but he drew four walks Friday and one Saturday to get on base five times. The 20-year-old is now hitting .249/.367/.332 with an eye-popping 108 strikeouts in 80 games. The strikeouts have really become a problem in the second half: he fanned 48 times in 42 games in the first half, but 60 times (against 26 walks) as part of a .187/.323/.230 line in 38 games in the second half.
Ok, this is pretty bizarre. The official box score from Sunday's game shows Nimmo 0-for-5 with 4 K. The game video from Greenville clearly has him going 1-for-3 with a strikeout and two walks. The single was a liner into center. I do not have the slightest clue how that could happen.
