Kevin Pillar has done it again.
The Toronto Blue Jays center fielder made a jaw-dropping catch on Monday night to rob Cleveland’s Jose Ramirez of a hit. Here’s a look at the spectacular play:

Making a diving catch coming in on a ball is impressive enough, but the difficulty of such a catch increases dramatically when you’re going back and have to lay out for it. Yet Pillar made the grab.
Jays starter Marcus Stroman was pretty shocked about the play:

That catch helped keep Stroman’s shutout intact and allowed him to leave the game up 4-0 against the Indians.
Pillar remains one of the best defensive outfielders in the game. On top of that, he’s also batting over .300 with some good pop this season as he entered Monday’s game with a .500 slugging percentage.
