Seriously?! Adam Engel Just Robbed His THIRD Home Run … of the Week!

Baseball Is Fun

When Adam Engel woke up last Monday, he probably didn’t know what kind of week his glove and legs had in store for him, but it was a busy one. Indeed, in back-to-back games, Engel robbed home runs from the Yankees at the Guaranteed Rate Field, which prompted some love from all of us here at Baseball is Fun:

After all, robbing one home is hard enough, but robbing a second? That’s just down right crazy. But guess what … he robbed ANOTHER one last night, this time against the Cleveland Indians. And it might just be the most impressive of the bunch.

Check it out (plus a bonus home run from him in the bottom half of the inning):

Here’s a look at all three of them back-to-back:

As the announcers and I’m sure many others have pointed out by now, even getting the opportunity to rob three homers in a week is pretty unbelievable. But the fact that he executed successfully on every single one of them? That’s just nuts.

Engel’s not quite the most adored defensive center fielder – either by scouts or the advanced metrics – but perhaps that’s going to change soon. If it doesn’t, it should.
