Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 45 | Run: 30 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

When the Mets went above pick value to sign Nido in 2012, they knew that the Florida prepster's bat might require extra time to develop. He made his full-season debut three years later, and then broke out at the plate in 2016, when he led the Florida State League in hitting (.320). Though he regressed offensively with the move to Double-A in '17, Nido still earned a Futures Game selection in July, followed by his first big league callup two months later. Returning to Double-A to open 2018, Nido was recalled by the Mets on three different occasions, though he hit .167 with a 30-percent strikeout rate in 34 games in the big leagues.

Nido has some tools to hit, but so far, they haven't translated for him in the upper levels of the Minors or in the Major Leagues. He has the ability to make hard contact to all fields, though his overall strike-zone control and decision making at the plate hold him back. Some refinement could allow him to tap into his above-average raw power, and he's shown in the past that he's strong enough to hit the ball out of the park to right-center field. Nido's greatest strides have come behind the plate. He'll flash a plus arm, and his release and accuracy have improved, allowing him to throw out 46 percent of would-be basestealers in the Minors in 2018. Meanwhile, pitchers love throwing to Nido because he's an advanced receiver who steals a lot of strikes with his framing.

While Nido may never be a great hitter for average, his underlying offensive tools suggest he should produce better results than he has thus far. That room for improvement at the plate, along with his strong catch-and-throw skills and receiving, all point to a long career in the big leagues as a backup catcher.
