Ever since he made his Major League debut on June 3, 2013, Yasiel Puig has taken baseball by storm.

Whether it be his laser rocket arm or his speed on the base paths, maybe even his power at the plate — he’s something to see.

Tuesday night we learned something new about Puig, his reflexes are amazing.

Puig was disappointed when he struck out on a 3-2 pitch in the bottom of the third inning against the San Diego Padres. Instead of slamming his bat on the ground, Puig walked to the dugout looking frustrated and tried to throw his batting helmet into the helmet rack.

There was only one problem, the helmet bounced back, but Puig managed to catch the helmet all in one motion. It’s pretty impressive.
