San Diego Padres outfielder Jabari Blash clubbed the team’s longest home run of the Statcast era Monday with a two-run shot against the Colorado Rockies.

Blash’s homer into the shrubbery near center at Coors Field tied Rockies outfielder Charlie Blackmon for the sixth-longest homer in the majors this year and was his third.

At 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Blash certainly has the potential to hit mammoth home runs like Monday’s, but he has just six homers in 113 major league at-bats.
