The 2022-23 MLB offseason is underway and teams are looking to improve their rosters for the 2023 season and beyond.

One player who could make an impact for a contender is outfielder Brandon Nimmo, who's quietly been one of the better hitters in the National League over the past half-decade for the New York Mets.

How much will it cost to acquire him? ESPN's Kiley McDaniel has an idea.

Brandon Nimmo Contract

According to McDaniel, baseball industry experts believe Nimmo will receive a contract in the range of five years and $118 million ($23.6 million AAV).

That may seem like a lot to casual fans who aren't familiar with Nimmo, but his numbers suggest he may be well worth the investment. Nimmo has posted an OPS of .800 or higher in four of the last five seasons and owns an exceptional .385 OBP for his career. He also has solid power, topping 15 home runs in both of his full seasons.

Despite missing extensive time with injuries throughout his career, the 29-year-old appears to be a risk worth taking. There's no denying his ability when he's on the field, but whoever signs him can only cross their fingers and hope he stays healthy.
