MLB’s Fastest and Slowest Players In 2021

We are well past the halfway point of the Major League Baseball season and I am here to look at the fastest and slowest players so far.

See Nationals' Trea Turner fly around the bases with wild inside-the-park home run

FASTEST PLAYERS
(Based on Sprint Speed from Statcast)

(5) Byron Buxton
Twins
30.0 ft / sec

(4) Eli White
Rangers
30.5 ft / sec

(3) Jorge Mateo
Padres
30.6 ft / sec

(2) Tim Locastro
Yankees
30.7 ft / sec

(1) Trea Turner
Nationals
30.8 ft / sec

Pablo Sandoval — yep, he's still in the league — hits game-tying homer vs. Phillies ace Nola | Sporting News Canada

SLOWEST PLAYERS
(Based on Sprint Speed from Statcast)

(5) Sandy Leon
Marlins
23.5 ft / sec

(4) Mike Ford
Yankees
23.1 ft / sec

(3) Yadier Molina
Cardinals
22.9 ft / sec

(2) Pablo Sandoval
Braves
22.7 ft / sec

(1) Albert Pujols
Dodgers
22.5 ft / sec

No huge surprises here, with Trae Turner overtaking TIm Locastro during today’s game to give him the # 1 spot. Also I would like to know how many years The Panda and The Machine have battled it out for slowest player in the league. Keep running hard fellas.
