It didn't take long for Trea Turner to get a good test at his new position in center field.
In the first inning against the Indians on Tuesday, Turner had two balls hit his way. One resulted in a ground rule double, the other found Turner's glove on a difficult grab at the wall.
Turner caught the third out at the warning track on a flyball by Jose Ramirez. The Nats' rookie reached out on a full sprint and reeled it in right just a few steps before the wall in right-center.
Check it out:
The catch was an impressive one to watch for a guy who is just learning a new position. But the details revealed by StatCast show exactly how good of a play it was.
Turner registered a 97.8% efficiency score and covered over 112 feet. That's exceptional.
