GIF: Giancarlo Stanton throws out Jayson Werth … from his knees

giancarlo stanton throws from his knees

Perhaps you were wondering, amidst yet another Marlins offseason fire sale, why Miami chose to hang on to outfielder Giancarlo Stanton.

Well, here’s your answer: The 23-year old makes a diving attempt at a Jayson Werth blooper. When he fails to make the initial grab, instead of giving up on the play, he snags the ball, whips it over to second and nails a sliding Werth for the out.

From his knees.
