Trot Times for April 13, 2015

Back to the daily grind. Let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Nelson Cruz #2, Seattle Mariners – 21.83 seconds [video]
New team, same Nelson Cruz. A two-home run game for Cruz (including his 200th and 201st career dingers) gives the slugger four on the year and a share of the American League lead. Of course, Cruz shares the lead with Detroit’s J.D. Martinez, who also went deep on Monday night. Neither league leader was exactly expected to be in this position.

Slowest Trot: Billy Butler, Oakland Athletics – 26.05 seconds [video]
A bomb for Country Breakfast. Butler’s first home run in an Oakland uniform lands on the train tracks at Minute Maid Park, an impressive blast. Meanwhile, Butler gives us a very typical trot on the bases.

Quickest Trot: Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners – 18.44 seconds [video]
One of four home runs launched by the Mariners at Dodger Stadium. Seager beats out teammate Dustin Ackley for the quickest trot of the night.
