The New York Mets have been one of the best teams in baseball despite dealing with a rash of injuries. Thankfully, it looks as if they could be getting some reinforcements soon.

Outfielder Brandon Nimmo has been out with a finger injury since early May, but it sounds like he's expected to be back in the lineup on Tuesday.

Brandon Nimmo Injury Update

This is huge for a Mets' offense that has really underwhelmed this season. New York currently averages just 3.61 runs per game – the second-worst total in the majors.

Nimmo's return should go a long way toward fixing that. In 21 games this season, Nimmo is slashing .318/.430/.439 with 1 home run and 8 RBI in 21 games played.

Despite all the injury issues, the Mets currently own the fourth-best odds (+850) to win the 2021 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
