Blink and you'll miss this 87.5 mph laser strike Gary Sanchez threw to catch Mike Trout stealing second

I don't know if Yankees catcher Gary Sánchez is into fishing, but he caught himself a big one Thursday night as the second half of a double play.

With New York in Anaheim closing out a four-game series, Sanchez made one of those throws from behind the plate that make you do a double-take. On the other end of his laser strike to second baseman DJ LeMahieu was Mike Trout -- last name shared with a fish ... so "caught himself a big one" is a pun ... get it? OK, whatever.

Here's the throw:

The stats back up that throw from Sanchez, which really was as impressive as it looked:

You have to bring your A-game at all times if you plan on denying Trout with having his way on the diamond, so kudos to you, Gary.
