The crosstown rivalry has no bounds and the Yankees are out to snatch away a key Mets player, who turns free agent this offseason, if reports are to be believed. The player in question is Brandon Nimmo, the “longest-serving position player for the Mets,” who their fans are unwilling to see with another team.

The news was first revealed on Tuesday by Michael Mayer, a writer for the New York Mets. According to him, the Yankees have discussed about the idea of signing outfielder Brandon Nimmo, even though the Mets think they will be able to keep him.

In a recent article, Jim Bowden of The Athletic also said that the 29-year-old Nimmo could be a good fit for the Yankees.

This season, Nimmo, a lefty, hit .274 with 16 home runs and 64 RBIs. He has been a Met his whole life. The team picked him in the first round of the draft in 2011 and he made his MLB debut with the Mets in 2016. Nimmo is about to become a free agent, but he has only made $14.4 million in his career so far, so he may be looking for a big contract.

The Yankees will try to re-sign Aaron Judge, who is in the running for AL MVP, this winter. But Nimmo is a worthy choice for them no matter what because he is a step up from Harrison Bader and Aaron Hicks in the center field thanks to his offense capability. Depending on how well Andrew Benintendi is doing, Nimmo could even become the Yankees’ everyday left fielder. He has also played at Yankee Stadium in the past, which is kind of interesting.

Do the Yankees need Nimmo?
