Kevin Pillar's route at 97.9% efficiency according to Statcast

Kevin Pillar's tremendous defensive play on Wednesday was the subject of MLB Central's Statcast on Friday. According to their numbers, Pillar's route efficiency was nearly perfect at 97.9% (100% would be a direct, straight-line path), covering 81.3 feet, before he leapt to pull a home run back from a 10-foot, not 20- or 12- or 15-foot, wall. Side note: did you know that Mark DeRosa played an inning in left field when he was with the Blue Jays?
