It’s just about a daily thing with Albert Almora, who tracks the ball as well as anyone I’ve seen in center field. That means he frequently gets to balls more easily than other outfielders, thus making very difficult catches look easy.

He also frequently gets to balls with some measure of difficulty and makes incredible catches – and yet somehow makes those look routine, for him, too. Like the catch he made in yesterday’s game

Did you see where Almora was positioned? He was way over on the left field side of the outfield, had to track that ball into right center with a near perfect route, immediately and at full speed, and then he had to dive to catch it.

I know this is not new information for you, but the young man is really special out there defensively.
