You’re not going to believe this, but Albert Almora made another ridiculous catch tonight. Shocker, I know. He only does this type of thing three to five times a week. Tonight’s victim was Braves catcher Tyler Flowers, who saw his bid for his second home run of the season fall flat thanks to Almora’s wizardry in the outfield:


Almora made that look like something anyone can do, but MLB.com’s Joe Posnanski brought everyone down to Earth with some Statcast metrics:


There’s no need to cry for Flowers here. He might have lost a home run but he’s played a role in Almora striking out three times tonight behind the plate.

Almora admiring his work, and rightfully so:
