Yasiel Puig makes amazing catch against the Atlanta Braves

Few baseball players have the intrigue of Yasiel Puig of the LA Dodgers. Even fewer have made so many highlight reels in so little time in the majors.

After all, Puig has only been in the MLB for two years. In that time he has shown us that he can be a five tool player when he wants to be. As you can probably tell from the way I phrased it, Puig does have a little bit of a problem with consistency.

It’s nothing too major but sometimes a player with so much talent and potential tries a little too hard to make the big play.

Puig's Prowess

But today against the Atlanta Braves, Puig showed why having that over eager approach can really pay off. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman put a great hit on the ball off of a mid level 90 mph fastball by Dodger Roberto Hernandez but Yasiel Puig judged it and absolutely tracked it.

Once locked on he follows the near home run to the wall and jumps and makes the grab while smacking his back against the wall. Or like the commentator in the video so elegantly put it, “He, the wall and the ball all met at the same time.” And then after this amazing grab, Puig simply shows the ball as though he caught in a game of catch with minimal effort.

Highlight Reel

All the while, a disappointed and frustrated Freeman heads back to his dugout. And frustrated the Braves were, they ended losing the game to LA 6-4.

This snag will be on sport highlight reels for a good while though, so think of this as a heads up of what’s to come.

And baseball fans, we all know Puig will keep giving us highlights as long as he can play so let’s try to enjoy it okay? For more highlights and MLB news, GiveMeSport is the place for you.
