|On the Mets’ exploratory list over this final month is determining if the combination of Juan Lagares and Brandon Nimmo is worth considering for a possible center field job share for 2018.
Lagares’ defense has never been a question Jerry Blevins Jersey, but can the Mets receive enough offense from the tandem? On Monday, plenty of it was present, with Nimmo and Lagares combining for five hits in the Mets’ 11 7 victory over the Phillies at Citi Field that snapped a four game skid.
Nimmo, who played left field http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/addison-reed-jersey-c-10.html, was 3 for 4 with two RBIs — which included two hits in the same inning — and Lagares was 2 for 4, with an RBI on a day the Mets gave Rafael Montero a 10 run cushion into the fifth.
“You can’t put too much pressure on [this opportunity] and say this is make or break for my career,” Nimmo said. “I am trying to be very grateful about this time and enjoy the heck out of it http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/jim-henderson-jersey-c-8.html, because not everybody gets to be an everyday major league player.”
Nimmo has reached base safely in nine straight games and is 10 for 32 .313 over that stretch with a homer. Lagares had a solid road trip for the Mets, going 12 for 41 .293 before his two hit performance Monday.
Montero never survived the sixth and was removed after allowing four earned runs on five hits and five walks over 5 ¹/₃ innings.
In his previous start, against the Reds last week, Montero had fired a three hitter over 8 ¹/₃ shutout innings.
The Mets seized control of Monday’s game in the fourth inning, scoring six runs to take a 10 0 lead. Nimmo singled leading off the inning against Mark Leiter Jr. http://www.metsfanaticsjersey.com/steven-matz-jersey-c-9.html, and later in the frame delivered an RBI single.
Jose Reyes and Asdrubal Cabrera each homered for the Mets in the third inning. Gavin Cecchini contributed to the onslaught with a two run single in the fourth.
