Nasty Nestor on the base pads?

The 26 year old Nestor Cortes, Jr. is known for his wacky windups on the mound, but perhaps not so much for his base running moves.

He got a chance to show off these moves on Friday against the Marlins, when he pinch ran for Urshela. In true Cortes fashion, his style on the base pad was all his own, as he overran the base and just made it back before the tag.

So while Anthony Rizzo’s coming out party was a smashing success, and Joey Gallo’s was ok, it was Cortes who made me smile and reminded me that the game is supposed to be fun.

Even when he’s deceiving hitters with his unique windups, throwing them off their timing, they can’t help but laugh at the fun he’s having.
