Kevin Pillar is nothing if not a web gem master.
The Toronto Blue Jays outfielder showed off his skills with the glove in a huge way once again Sunday against the Detroit Tigers, robbing Nicholas Castellanos of a home run in the most extraordinary way.
The play was so amazing, in fact, that Castellanos himself couldn’t help but applaud.

What’s even more incredible about Pillar’s effort here is that the Jays were getting crushed, 9-1, in the ninth inning when he came up with the catch.
The reactions to Pillar’s catch on social media were pretty great, too.

The fact that Kevin Pillar still hasn’t been awarded a Gold Glove is mind boggling
