Nomar Mazara destroys a baseball, and it lands 491 feet away

I like Nomar Mazara. He reminds me of a young Carlos Gonzalez. He’s really owned the Angels this season, and today in Arlington was no different.

Mazara got a piece of a Hector Santiago fastball, and it lands in a rare place at the Ballpark in Arlington. It was measured by statcast at 491 feet, the longest home run of the MLB season.

And I owned Nomar Mazara as a late round keeper in two fantasy leagues, and for some reason dealt him this week on both teams. The return of course netted me Syndergaard, DeGrom, and Sano; but this is a bad omen that I’m going to regret letting Mazara go.
