Mets prospect Luis Guillorme showed off the smoothest of defense with a between-the-legs glove flip
Usually you need to have at least made the Majors to have created an entire mixtape of defensive wonders. Not so for Mets prospect Luis Guillorme. The shortstop, ranked No. 13 in the Mets system by MLB Pipeline, has already put together a stunning reel of glorious plays. And he may have topped them all on Saturday night.
Playing for the Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies against the Harrisburg Senators, Guillorme raced behind the bag to glove Yadiel Hernandez's ground ball. With his weight going toward right field and not much time to lose, he simply flipped the ball to second from between his legs. Even his double-play partner appeared stunned:
Seriously, that's a skills competition move -- not something you see during an actual game. And yet here we are.
The Mets may have just called up top prospect Amed Rosario, but Guillorme is proof that the Minors are still chock full of exciting Mets infielders. Watch the full play below:
