Zack Granite made his first career start in center field for the Twins on Sunday.

And despite Granite never having played at Target Field before, the 24-year-old acted like he's been here his whole life. Check out this amazing catch during the fourth inning.

Granite made his MLB debut on Saturday as a pinch hitter, with an impressive 11-pitch at bat against hard-throwing righty Michael Givens.

He was called up after smacking the cover off the ball at Triple-A this season where he posted a batting average of .470 (we're serious) in the month of June for Rochester.

The left-handed hitter checked in as the team's 21st best prospect during the preseason, but clearly he's been exceeding expectations.

When the All-Star break concludes, we'll see if Granite sticks around. Although he was an everyday player in the minors, Granite could be a lethal weapon off the bench for Paul Molitor in high-leverage situations down the stretch.
