Sean Rodriguez is primarily an infielder but he plays the outfield pretty well, too. 

In Sunday's game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Philadelphia Phillies, Rodriguez made a stunning diving catch in rightfield to rob Freddy Galvis of extra bases.

Rodriguez has most played first base for the Pirates this season and was making only his eighth appearance of the year in rightfield. Rodriguez looked like a natural, though, tracking the ball into the corner and diving to grab it just short of the warning track. The ball left the bat at 96 mph and traveled 308 feet, according to MLB's batted ball data.
