As the great Pusha T once rapped, “I’m Yasiel Puig, I’m in another league.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ young phenom once again proved his otherworldliness last night when he showed off the type of arm strength that makes us wonder whether Puig’s right arm is actually bionic.
After Colorado Rockies rookie sensation Trevor Story hit a bomb (what else is new?) to right field, the ball bounced off the wall over Puig’s outstretched glove. Puig quickly scooped it up and launched the ball 325 feet on the fly to third base to nab the sliding Story.
Puig’s career has been full of incredible feats like this, but his odd behavior on and off the field has left some purists shaking their heads. But when he does something like this, any debate regarding his worth to the Dodgers fades away.
