It’s been like a whole week since the last incredible Albert Almora highlight, so we were about six days overdue.
And boy did he turn it in tonight, when Tyler Flowers crushed one to center field that looked bound to go over the wall. But not when Albert Almora is on duty:

That was hit at 106.4 mph, and barreled with a 95% hit probability, according to Statcast. Almora is the 5%.
Almora takes a great route on those balls hit over his head, and he tracked that one the whole way. And in an unfamiliar park, he still sized up where he was on the fly, and timed his leap perfectly to make the catch. He’s so dang good.
