There is a brewing competition unfolding in centerfield with the Chicago Cubs.

Young outfielders Ian Happ and Albert Almora Jr. are currently battling for the starting centerfield job as both have played well during spring training.

Happ may have taken the lead in the competition with hit four homers this spring.

However, Almora Jr. got into the lineup on Tuesday afternoon against the Los Angeles Dodgers and had a two-run homer in the first inning (1-for-15 this spring) as well as a beautiful diving catch.

Check out the video of his defensive gem below.
