Watch: Zack Greinke had great reaction to Carlos Correa’s cannon throw
Zack Greinke is only in his third week as a member of the Houston Astros, so some things about the team are still surprising him.
The six-time All-Star started on Sunday against the Oakland Athletics and covered first base in the seventh inning to record the putout on a 3-6-1 double play. The return throw from shortstop Carlos Correa came in hot, appearing to catch Greinke off-guard and leading to this great reaction from him.

Greinke would go on to earn the win, as the Astros came out on top by the final of 4-1. Correa helped his cause too with two walks and a run scored.
The 24-year-old Correa was a pitcher for a time in his youth, so that may help explain the rocket arm. As for Greinke, he called his Astros debut “boring” a couple weeks ago, but Correa ensured that wasn’t the case again on Sunday.
