Trot Times for April 16, 2015

This is going to have to be a short one, so let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona Diamondbacks – 21.55 seconds [video]
Perhaps Wilmer Flores’ game-tying, three-run blast deserves this recognition more than Goldy’s deep shot into the bleachers, I dunno. All I know is that this is the home run I want to watch over-and-over again from Thursday.

Also hitting a home run Thursday? Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton, who had yet to go yard on the season.

Slowest Trot: Lorenzo Cain, Kansas City Royals – 24.44 seconds [video]
The slowest trot of the day wasn’t really all that slow.

Quickest Trot: Michael Taylor, Washington Nationals – 18.14 seconds [video]
A beautiful spring for Taylor. Tampa Bay’s Tim Beckham had a nice quick trot as well.
