Mets OF Brandon Nimmo, who hit .260/.379/.418 with five HR, 11 doubles, and 21 RBI in 69 games last season, lists his power and pitch-selection as things he wants to work on heading into the 2018 season.
"I think things I can work on are power, average, and then obviously I think I can get better at swinging at more good pitches consistently," Nimmo told SNY's Steve Gelbs. "I felt like curveballs are something I can hop on a bit more."
Nimmo, who saw regular playing time from August through the end of the season, also talked about improving his first-step quickness in the outfield and when it comes to stealing bases.
"Mentally, physically, I still have a long ways to go," he added about his overall approach, "but I'm hoping that I have a long time in the major leagues to figure that out and to keep making adjustments."
The 24-year-old Nimmo recently had the chance to speak with new manager Mickey Callaway, and is excited about what he could bring to the pitching staff.
"I really am excited about this," Nimmo said. "We have a really good pitching staff when it's healthy, and he's a pitching guy. And so we're excited to get that going. I'm excited for him to work with them. Obviously, they're gonna lead the way and the offense is going to support that. ... We know what our strong point is, and that's our starting pitching."
