Tater Trot Tracker

Trot Times for April 22

by Larry Granillo

Let's get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Luis Valbuena, Chicago Cubs - 23.3 seconds [video]
It's a tough call between Robinson Cano and Luis Valbuena about who celebrated their home run with more gusto (see Cano's home run here), but Valbuena gets the Home Run of the Day honors because his blast came in the thirteenth inning. Of course, the Cubs would go on to lose anyway, but that's not Valbuena's fault.

In San Francisco, Diamondbacks pitcher Wade Miley hit the first home run of his career, trotting home in 24.51 seconds.

Slowest Trot: Kendrys Morales, Seattle Mariners - 25.36 seconds [video]
A nice, leisurely trot from Morales. Sunday's slowest trot, however, bested Morales by more than a second when Kansas City's Billy Butler took 26.79 seconds to round the bases in Fenway.

Quickest Trot: Jay Bruce, Cincinnati Reds - 18.28 seconds [video]
One of three tater trots to reach the 18-second mark on Monday. The two other trots were both from Ryan Roberts, who showed a remarkable level of consistency between his two trots. Roberts' first trot clocked in at 18.33 seconds. His second came in at 18.31.
