I don’t know what’s in the water around MLB ballparks lately, but it’s causing outfielders to throw out everyone in sight.

The latest crazy throw: Jackie Bradley, Jr. doubling off Mike Aviles in yesterday’s Sox-Indians game. Watch the official MLB.com video here.

Here’s a Vine of it from Mark Normandin of SB Nation:

    Now thats a laser.

      Should have shown the catch as well, which he made up against the wall with his back to the infield.

    One question? When is Puig coming to this ‘golden arm’ party?

    • davidpom50 - Jun 13, 2014 at 10:37 AM

      He can’t anymore. No one tries to run on him. See: Brandon Phillips skidding to a halt as he rounded second, then turning and bowing to Puig the other day.

    A Red Sox CF with a decent arm??? We haven’t seen that in a while.

      This is one reason why they let Ellsbury go. Now if only JBJ can get going with the bat…

      I saw some people saying Tony Armas had a great arm, but I don’t remember that. I mean, the team traded for Dave Henderson and used him as a defensive replacement in 1986. Then again, the team was really stupid back then. (Note: the trade for Henderson seems to have worked out!)

      Fun fact: Jackie Bradley and Tony Armas have the same career OBP: .287.

      Not since the days of Jesus Johnny Damon.

    I like how casual Napoli is, not even looking back at the runner

    PEDs

    I remember reading a scouting report about him last year and it said something along the lines of “Good arm, especially in comparison to Ellsbury, but still not a great arm”

    Reaaaally now…

      I guess hitting Napoli on the fly would be ‘a great arm’.

    I see a possible starting pitcher with no elbow injury. 60′ 6″ should be a walk in the park with that arm.

    Bradley is for real as a center fielder. It still remains to be seen how good a hitter he’ll be.

    Ah the old 8-3 DP.

  12. xpensivewinos - Jun 13, 2014 at 11:46 AM

    Those happen once in a blue moon and it’s fun to watch, but the striking out every at bat has me a bit more concerned…….

    To qualify as one of Craig’s “lasers”, this throw must arrive on the fly and resemble a rainbow.

    Well, it was a little up the line, so there’s that.
