Yasiel Puig makes perfect throw to nail Darwin Barney at second base

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is making a habit of making highlight throws so far this season. The latest came in the third inning on Friday night, when Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Darwin Barney was erased on a would-be double thanks to Puig's strong throw from right field, with laser-like accuracy.

Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, waiting at second base, didn't even have to move his glove to receive the throw. This one was almost as good, and just as accurate, as Puig's 300-foot throw at Coors Field on April 22, that one to third base.

The throw to nail Barney was Puig's fourth outfield assist, tying him with Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers and Starling Marte of the Pittsburgh Pirates for the National League lead.
