WATCH: Yasiel Puig makes ridiculous throw for out, but call overturned
Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig is the epitome of a five-tool player. Today, it was the “arm” that was on display. Or gun. Or more like cannon. Check out this frozen rope on a hit to the corner by the Detroit Tigers Torii Hunter where Puig spins and “flicks” the ball in time to get Hunter at 2B (via MLB.com)
Unfortunately for the Dodgers, instant replay disagreed and Hunter was ruled safe. As FOX/MLB Network reporter Jon Morosi tweeted:
Call overturned. What’s not overturned: We just saw Puig make one of the best throws of the baseball year.

They can’t take away the image for sure, and fans at Comerica Park got a full dose of the arm Puig possesses. The overturn fueled a five-run Tigers rally, every inch counts!
