Nimmo is reportedly asking for $2.5 million, although his father, Ron Nimmo, says the asking price is different. If the two parties cannot work out a deal, Nimmo will enroll in classes at Arkansas next week.
"[The Mets] have some work to do," Ron Nimmo said. "There's some disparity.
"It's not all about the money. You get one shot at this deal and you're going to have to live off this for six years."
