Hansel Robles’ funky leg kick gets funny remix

Hansel Robles

Hansel Robles has been varying his leg kick at times this season, seemingly in an effort to mess with opposing hitters’ timing. He did it again while closing out the Los Angeles Angels’ 9-6 win over the Houston Astros on Monday night.

While facing Yuli Gurriel in the ninth inning, Robles triple-pumped his leg kick to mess with the Astros hitter.

Gurriel ended up with a single, so the strategy didn’t appear to work too well.

But there was one benefit: Rob Friedman, who goes by Pitching Ninja on Twitter, put together this funny remix:

We love it.

Robles has 14 saves and a 2.62 ERA this season. He’s been using this strategy at times during the season. The 28-year-old has become much better with the Angels than he was with the Mets.
