Yasiel Puig Video: Watch Dodgers Superstar Uncork Bullet to Nail Marlon Byrd

Josh SchochAnalyst IIIAugust 14, 2013

Yasiel Puig could easily have the best arm in Major League Baseball, and he showed it off again on Wednesday.

When Puig and the Los Angeles Dodgers hosted the New York Mets, Puig made yet another incredible throw.

Marlon Byrd stood on first base with nobody out in the top of the second when Justin Turner dropped a looping single along the right-field line. Byrd tried making it to third on the play, which would've given the Mets a great scoring opportunity, but he never made it.

With any other outfielder in right, Byrd could've reached safely, but Puig is no ordinary player. We've seen him make incredible plays time and time again.

Remember this throw in his MLB debut to complete a double play that ended the game?

Or this one, when he gunned down Andrelton Simmons attempting to stretch it to third? The cutoff man thought there was no way Puig could nail Simmons and tried to catch the ball, but he threw a strike to third that somehow beat Simmons.

Some of Puig's plays are even so good that the umpires can't get the calls right. On this play, he nailed Bryce Harper as he tagged up and tried to advance to third, but the umpire got the call wrong because it ended up being so unexpectedly close.

This throw also shows how Puig's arm can save runs, as he unleashes a bullet to the plate that makes Jason Heyward stop short and think twice about taking off for home.

Puig's latest throw is just as jaw-dropping as the others, and fans never tire of watching him gun down helpless runners.

Why would anyone ever try and run on Yasiel Puig?? He was born with a Howitzer as a right arm. #MLB #Dodgers

Puig is making a strong case for NL Rookie of the Year, and this throw can only help pad his resume.
