Lost a bit in the Gleyber Torres mania in the Bronx -- at least until Tuesday night -- was the emergence of Brandon Nimmo in Queens.
The 25-year-old Nimmo is hitting .287/.410/.603 for the Mets with 12 HR, nine doubles, five triples, and seven stolen bases in 60 games this season -- and is currently one of the most valuable players in the majors.
Nimmo has the best slugging percentage in the National League (min. 200 plate appearances) and the fifth-highest in all of baseball. His 1.013 OPS is the best in the NL and fourth-best in baseball.
For comparison, Nimmo's slugging percentage is better than players such as Aaron Judge, Manny Machado, and Freddie Freeman.
The 21-year-old Torres is hitting .287/.342/.550 for the Yankees with 13 HR, six doubles, zero triples, and two stolen baes in 49 games this season, during what is his rookie campaign.
Torres' slugging percentage is 16th-best in the majors, and his OPS is 23rd-best. He's also doing this at a younger age than Nimmo, who has an additional 112 games under his belt (with stints in the bigs in 2015 and 2016).
So, who is the best young hitter in New York?
