VIDEO: Chris Taylor makes a diving stop, throws out Victor Martinez from outfield grass

Watch as Mariners rookie shortstop Chris Taylor making a diving stop before throwing out Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez from the outfield grass. Oh, and we also get a bonus collision between Martinez and Logan Morrison at first base. Fortunately nobody got hurt here, so this video is just a lot of fun to watch.

Called up last month amid the struggles of Brad Miler, Taylor has seized his opportunity at the starting shortstop job by hitting .385 (20-for-52) with five doubles and four RBI over his first 18 games in the majors.

    Chris Taylor is coming along quite nicely, thank you. And had it not been for Willie Bloomquist’s season-ending injury, Brad Miller would now be working things out in Tacoma.
