It hasn't taken D.J. Wilson long to impress with the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Wilson, ranked the eight-best prospect in the Chicago Cubs' system, recently made ESPN show SportsCenter's Top 10 plays with a diving catch he made against the Frederick Keys on Sunday. Wilson ran a long way in chasing down fly ball in the left-center field gap before making an impressive catch while diving toward the outfield wall.

Wilson then got up and nearly doubled up a runner at first base. The only reason it wasn't a double play is the relay throw was bobbled at first.

SportsCenter tweeted the catch with the caption "From out of nowhere!"
