Watch: Yasiel Puig makes most casual catch ever
It may only be spring training, but Yasiel Puig appears to have his defensive alignment exactly where it needs to be for Opening Day.
During Tuesday’s exhibition game between the Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals, Puig made one of the most casual catches you will ever see in the outfield. He happened to be positioned perfectly on a fly ball to right, and he literally didn’t move a muscle until just before the ball was in his glove.

Puig had some forgettable moments in the outfield over the years with the Los Angeles Dodgers, and some will say his catch on Tuesday was another example of his lack of focus and nonchalant attitude. We say if you’re standing in exactly the right spot, why bother moving? Sometimes things just work out perfectly.
