Trot Times for May 21, 2014

Let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Edwin Encarnacion #2, Toronto Blue Jays – 22.51 seconds [video]
Yet another two home run night for Encarnacion, following up his pair of (massive) home runs on Tuesday. In the last two weeks, Encarnacion has doubled up his bombs in four different games, which goes a long way in explaining his 11 home runs in the month of May.

Slowest Trot: Hanley Ramirez, Los Angeles Dodgers – 26.76 seconds [video]
The second blast in a back-to-back pairing with Yasiel Puig, who you’ll see mentioned below. Ramirez’s other power-hitting teammate, Adrian Gonzalez, had the second slowest trot of the night at 25.67 seconds.

Quickest Trot: Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers – 19.55 seconds [video]
A pedestrian trot from Puig, but it’s still good enough for the quickest trot of the night. David Murphy’s 19.9 second trot was the only other trot to clock in under 20 seconds Wednesday night.
