Yasiel Puig helping his pitchers out with impressive plays in center field has all but become a regular occurrence.
In Wednesday’s loss to the Atlanta Braves, Puig tracked down a hard-hit ball off the bat of Freddie Freeman to make a catch moments before bumping into the fence.
With the Los Angeles Dodgers leading the Braves 5-1 in the sixth inning on Thursday, Puig robbed Freeman once again. The Braves first baseman hit a shot to deep center that Puig turned his back on as he ran towards the center field fence.
As Puig reached the warning track, he began to turn his shoulders and made a leaping catch back over his right shoulder; the play was reminiscent of a wide receiver adjusting to catch a pass from a quarterback.
Along with robbing Freeman for the second time in as many days, Puig also took a hit away from Josh Hamilton during a Dodgers win in Anaheim.
