Sprinting, diving and barrel-rolling, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar made an absolute stunner of a play Monday night, one that’s already being hailed as Major League Baseball‘s catch of the season so far.

With two outs in the sixth inning, a runner in scoring position and Toronto up 4-0 on Cleveland, Pillar laid all the way out to rob Jose Ramirez of what sure as hell should have been a base hit. Take a look. 

We’re not even sure what’s more impressive — Pillar’s full-extension to pluck the ball from the air, or the awareness to pull out of his barrel-roll just before hitting the wall. Verily, the man can do it all. 

For The Win and the New England Sports Network have already dubbed Pillar’s stretch-out MLB’s “catch of the year.” 

Meanwhile, he’s the same guy who made this nearly-as-incredible catch just a month ago.

Kevin Pillar, ladies and gents. Remember the name.
