Must see: Twins prospect pulls off an amazing catch in his first start

Zack Granite somehow tracked this ball down ...

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.
