Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. doesn’t just rake at the plate. No, the youngster has a cannon for an arm from right field.

Toronto Blue Jays rookie Cavan Biggio found that out first hand during Tuesday’s game. Check out this throw from Acuna Jr. to get Biggio at second base after he knocked a hit to right field.

If that were hit to any other right fielder in baseball, Biggio would be looking at a clear double. Instead, Acuna came up with the throw of the MLB season.

This kid is all sorts of special. The 21-year-old former Rookie of the Year entered Tuesday’s action hitting .290 with 36 homers and 89 RBI. He’s also a clear Gold Glove candidate.
