Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is an outstanding baseball player and his physical talents were on full display when he robbed New York Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores in the second inning of Thursday's game. 

Puig ranged far into right-center and laid out at a full sprint to make the amazing grab. He slid to the warning track and rolled over in one motion, displaying the ball in his glove. Lucas Duda was on base and had to track all the way to first after Puig made the putout. 

It's a feat in itself that he didn't hurt his wrist on the dive, but that just adds to the growing legend of of the Dodgers star. 

Keep it up, Yasiel. Baseball is a better game with you in it!
