Add another one to the Kevin Pillar highlight reel.

The Blue Jays centrefielder went full Superman, stealing extra bases from the Red Sox’s Mookie Betts Monday night at Rogers Centre.

“That might be his best ever,” Buck Martinez said on the Sportsnet broadcast.

You can say that again.

The 28-year-old raced back towards the fence, leaping with full extension to make the miraculous grab, before falling hard on the warning track and rolling into the wall. Statcast listed the probability of making the catch at just 38%.

Up 3-2 in the sixth inning, Pillar’s catch was a vitally important one at that moment in the game. A day later the pitcher who served up the pitch, Marcus Stroman, was still singing his praises.

Take a look:

The Red Sox went on to win the game 6-5.
