Royals outfielders collectively led the league in both DRS and UZR this season, and Gordon, Cain, and Dyson ranked third, fourth, and ninth, respectively, among individual outfielders in DRS. The Royals outfielders’ arms account for some of the strength of their defensive ratings, but they nearly doubled the closest club in UZR Range Runs, which measures only how good they were at getting to balls. “We’re not just talking about a good outfield, or a great outfield,” wrote Baseball Prospectus’s Sam Miller on Monday, noting that the three outfielders’ 2014 DRS totals at the positions they play would prorate to a combined plus-80 over 135 games. “We’re talking about what one might decide to argue is the greatest defensive outfield of all-time.” It’s certainly looked like it lately, as all four Royals outfielders have taken turns topping each other with increasingly spectacular grabs.

Even the Mets, who watch Juan Lagares play every day, are sometimes amazed by the outfielder’s capabilities.
Lagares put on another defensive show in Monday’s loss to the Giants, throwing a runner out at home plate in the seventh inning to stop the bleeding during a potentially huge rally.
With one run already home and two men on base, Pablo Sandoval hit a sharp single to center field. Lagares charged, took a quick extra step and fired home, putting his entire body’s momentum behind the throw. It sailed about a foot to the third-base side of home plate, allowing catcher Travis d’Arnaud to catch it on the fly and apply the tag.
“There are a lot of good outfielders in this league, but Juan Lagares ranks right with anybody in this league defensively,” manager Terry Collins said. “He’s got a great arm.”

Good material with some good numbers in here. But it’s questionable that this is the solution:

Some good plays here. As great as they are, all outfield arms must line up behind Ellis Valentine.
