Mets' Tomas Nido: Clubs third spring homer
Nido went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
Getting the start behind the plate and hitting sixth, Nido took Drew VerHagen deep in the fifth inning. It's the backstop's third homer this spring, and he's gone 10-for-26 (.385) in Grapefruit League action while adding a couple doubles as well. The 28-year-old will split time behind the plate with Omar Narvaez this season, likely filling the short side of a platoon, but Nido's career .220/.257/.323 slash line in 744 plate appearances doesn't suggest an offensive breakout is imminent....

Mets' Tomas Nido: Crushes solo homer
Nido went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's loss against Atlanta.
Nido's eighth-inning shot was too little and too late, as the Mets were behind by four and it would turn out to be the final run of the game as Atlanta took the win. It was Nido's third homer of the season, all of which have come this month. The catcher has been heating up in September, slashing .333/.340/.608 and raising his season batting average from .224 to .243 over that span.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tomas Nido: Poaching work from McCann
Nido will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Brewers.
The hot-hitting Nido seems to have temporarily settled in ahead of James McCann on the depth chart at catcher.

Mets' Tomas Nido: Losing work to McCann
Nido is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Dodgers, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The playing time at catcher has tilted in favor of James McCann lately, with Nido having now sat in three of the past four games. Even if Nido re-emerges as the preferred backstop for the Mets, he's unlikely to provide much of an imprint in fantasy leagues, given that he's hitting .222 with no home runs or stolen bases in 252 plate appearances on the campaign....

Mets' Tomas Nido: Sits Tuesday
Nido is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers.
Nido and James McCann look to be stuck in a true timeshare at catcher, with each having now picked up three starts apiece over the Mets' last six contests. Even if the playing time eventually tilts more heavily in Nido's favor, he's unlikely to provide much fantasy value. In 249 plate appearances on the season, Nido is hitting .221 with no home runs and no stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Tomas Nido: Sits out series finale
Nido is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
Nido is on the bench for the series finale, but after starting in three of the Mets' last four games following his return from the COVID-19-related injured list, he may have overtaken James McCann as the team's No. 1 backstop. For the season, Nido has produced a lowly .221/.266/.261 line across 249 plate appearances, but the Mets put a lot of value on the work he does defensively.... See More ... See Less

Mets' Tomas Nido: Moves into timeshare
Nido is on the bench for Thursday's game against Atlanta.
With the Mets activating James McCann (oblique) from the injured list Thursday and inserting into the lineup, Nido's reign as the team's No. 1 catcher will come to an end. Though McCann has operated as the Mets' top option behind the plate when healthy during his two seasons with the team, manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that McCann and Nido are likely to be used in a near-50/50 timeshare at catcher in the short-term future, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com. Once McCann's oblique injury is further behind him, however, expect him to eventually get the lion's share of the starts.... See More ... See Less
