Watch Leonys Martin throw out a poor, unsuspecting Rays baserunner by a mile

The Rays temporarily forgot that Martin has a cannon for an arm.

Leonys Martin is a gifted center fielder. He is fast, has great range and instincts, and has a cannon for an arm. The Tampa Bay Rays learned about that final tool the hard way on Tuesday, when Martin threw out Rays catcher Wilson Ramos by a mile.

Let’s roll that one back.

Put this one on Rays third base coach Matt Quatraro. Even a faster runner, like Mallex Smith, probably gets thrown out by a fair margin on that play. But credit to Martin for making the play, as well.
