Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto continued their rehab assignments in Triple-A Syracuse on Father's Day, and both players came around the bases to score against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

In the top of the first inning, Nimmo -- playing in his first game -- collected a single and Conforto would later double to move his teammate to third.

With Nimmo, particularly, it was his first game in Triple-A.

"We'll see how he goes," Luis Rojas told reporters about Nimmo after the Mets' 5-2 loss to the Nationals. "I haven't heard his feedback on how he felt when he made contact. I'm curious to hear because that's the one thing we want to pay attention in his progression to during the rehab assignment."

Nimmo has been dealing with a finger injury that has kept him off the Mets, and one of the main reasons is due to his inability to hit a ball without feeling pain.

Conforto has been with Syracuse for a couple rehab starts before Nimmo arrived. He played a full game, going 1-for-4.

The expectation is Conforto can rejoin the Mets at home at some point this week if all continues to go well with his hamstring rehab.
