RotoWire News: Nimmo (hamstring) likely won't be able to return to the lineup until later this week, the New York Daily News reports. (3/20/2017)
Injury: Hamstring, Day-To-Day
Profiles:  2017  (Click Year to Expand / Close)
Profile: Brandon Nimmo had the best season of his professional career in 2016, setting personal records in doubles, home runs, RBIs, batting average and slugging. In June he received his first call up to the majors, where he hit his first home run and provided an emotional spark to the clubhouse, but otherwise had an unremarkable stint with the ball club. Nimmo was once projected as a potential five tool player, but in the years since he’s lost a bit of his speed, and his power hasn’t quite developed as expected. In 2017 he will begin play in AAA and will likely remain there for much of the season due to the current major league outfield logjam. If Nimmo can continue to develop power without sacrificing On Base Percentage, he could become a full time starting outfielder in 2018. Otherwise, he may be relegated to a fourth outfielder role. Of note, in 2016 Nimmo absolutely crushed left handed pitching, which is a platoon skill worth keeping your eye on in years to come. (Andrew Perpetua)

The Quick Opinion: Brandon Nimmo probably will not have much fantasy value in 2017, and his value beyond 2017 is still very much up in the air.
