Giants

One of the best defensive center fielders in baseball will now be patrolling the grounds at Oracle Park.

On Tuesday, the Giants acquired outfielder Kevin Pillar from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for Alen Hanson, Derek Law and Juan De Paula.

Pillar, also known as "Superman" north of the border, has put together a lengthy resume of highlight-reel catches that are sure to make Giants fans drool. 

The 30-year-old currently has an 8.2 active defensive WAR, and finished in the top 10 in AL in that category in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Pillar has a career fielding percentage of .990 and is worth 37 total zone runs as a center fielder, which ranks seventh, per Baseball Reference.

But enough with the numbers, let' relive a few of Pillar's most memorable, eye-raising catches.

Hey look, it's Superman.

He's known for his ability to climb the wall.

 

And save some runs.

OK, so those weren't bad, but now let's get into the jaw-dropping catches.

We're sure Bruce Bochy and the Giants rotation will be happy to have Pillar patrolling the outfield along with Steven Duggar for the rest of the season.
