Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo left Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Brewers in the bottom of the first inning with an apparent injury.
Nimmo, who stole a base after a leadoff single in the top of the first, exited the game after Rowdy Tellez popped out to shallow left, a ball caught by Jeff McNeil. Nimmo seemed to be jogging slowly on the play. After a talk with the trainer and Buck Showalter, Nimmo made his way toward the dugout.
Mark Canha replaced Nimmo in center field.
The 29-year-old is hitting .264 with 14 home runs, 28 doubles, seven triples, 56 RBIs and a .776 OPS this season.
