Yasiel Puig threw a runner out by three steps ... from the warning track without a crow hop

Yasiel Puig's arm needs no introduction, so we're just gonna leave this here:

If you need more context, allow us to explain:

Inning: Bottom six

Score: 4-3 Braves

Situation: No one on, no one out

Hitter: Catcher Ryan Lavarnway

Result: In play, out(s)

Comments: This throw is particularly impressive for two reasons:

1. Puig is standing at the warning track with his back to home plate when he fields the ball.

2. He has no momentum moving toward second base and doesn't take a crow hop before firing the strike. It's all arm, baby.
