Alcides Escobar needs to update his position from shortstop to shortstop/short centerfielder. He made one of the best catches you'll ever see and turned it into a double play.
This is freaking range right here. He turned and ran into shallow center made a sliding over the shoulder catch then popped up and threw the runner out trying to return to first.
What a play. Easily an early play of the year nominee.
Wow! This is what Championship teams do. Amazing play by Alcides Escobar. #ESKYMAGIC @kcroyals #foreverRoyal pic.twitter.com/jBI7GX5mpm— Clifton Alexander (@clifbo) April 15, 2016
