The Mets are planning to put in some extra work with Brandon Nimmo -- in the kitchen, that is.
The outfielder was scheduled to make his Spring Training debut in the field on Thursday after he was the designated hitter on Tuesday but will not be in the lineup due to a stomach illness.
Manager Mickey Callaway revealed on Wednesday that Nimmo's stomach illness stemmed from eating undercooked chicken that the outfielder prepared himself.
The Mets manager joked that they should teach the 25-year-old how to cook so it does not happen again.
Nimmo, who battled shoulder soreness earlier this spring, is 1-for-5 and should not be sidelined beyond Thursday.
