The Houston Astros have high hopes for 22-year-old pitcher Lance McCullers—because of his arm, not his hops.

Well, his hops just add to the package.

McCullers took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off his bounce. All the 2012 first-round pick did was nail a 61.5-inch box jump. Because the 59.5-inch box jump apparently wasn't challenging enough.

The only thing better than that athleticism might be the reaction from the dude screaming toward the end of the clip. He'd make a great hype man.
