June 26, in a 5-2 loss to the Braves. The starting right fielder, he batted seventh and went 0-for-4 with three infield groundouts and a strikeout, stranding three runners on base. In his first at-bat in the third inning, he led off the inning grounding out to third base, the seventh batter in a row retired by Braves starter Bud Norris to open the game. In the fifth, he grounded into a force out to second base. In the seventh, he grounded out to shortstop, and in the ninth inning he made the final out of the game striking out looking against reliever Arodys Vizcaino.

Player Notes
The first player to ever be a first-round draft pick straight out of high school in Wyoming, Nimmo boasts outstanding plate discipline, drawing 33 walks in 63 games to add to his OBP. Between three stops in 2015 at St. Lucie (High A), Binghamton (Double-A) and Las Vegas, he combined to hit .269 in 104 games with five homers, 26 RBIs and five steals to go with 16 doubles, losing some playing time when he suffered an ACL injury. In his last full season, 2014, he combined to bat .278 with 10 homers, 51 RBIs and 14 steals along with 21 doubles and nine triples between St. Lucie and Binghamton. A fine defensive outfielder, he is more of a line drive hitter than an over-the-wall power prospect.
