With the Jays up 9-3 at home with two outs and a man on first in the top of the eighth, Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano cracked a drive to deep right-center. The laser sailed over Pillar's head, but not before the center fielder refused to prioritize the prevention of serious bodily harm over a relatively harmless run in a lopsided game, leaping off his feet in a dead sprint.
Sano would not be collecting that RBI.
And again, in slow motion.
Of course, this sort of death-defying, acrobatic outfielding has sort of been Pillar's calling card during the 26-year-old's short career.
In his first full season, he's also turned into a solid base-stealing threat, going of 15-of-18 in 2015 after swiping one bag in four tries in 89 games over his first two big league seasons.
