Outfielder Brandon Nimmo has left his rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse and is rejoining the New York Mets to receive treatment on his bruised left index finger.

Nimmo, 28, who began the rehab stint on Thursday, was out of the Syracuse lineup Friday and Saturday while feeling some pain in his finger, which he initially injured on May 2 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

A first-round pick by the Mets in 2011, Nimmo will remain sidelined until he is "100 percent pain-free," according to manager Luis Rojas.

In 21 games with the Mets this season, Nimmo is hitting a career-high .318 with one home run and eight RBIs. He has missed 13 games due to injuries this year.

Nimmo, who made his MLB debut in 2016, has hit .262 with 40 home runs and 129 RBIs in 386 career games with the Mets.
