When it comes to spectacular plays on the diamond, Oakland A’s outfielder Ramon Laureano already has a season’s worth of highlights in less than a month.

Laureano, 24, first showed off his incredible throwing arm last season, when he made a running catch in deep left-center field and fired a 321-foot strike to first base for a double play.

He showed off both his glove and his arm on the same play Sunday — in even more amazing fashion.

With a runner on first in the top of the second inning, Teoscar Hernandez of the Toronto Blue Jays launched a near-400 foot blast to center field. Laureano raced back to the wall, jumped and robbed Hernandez of a two-run homer. 

But that wasn’t the end of it …

Laureano may have overthrown everyone, but fortunately catcher Nick Hundley backed up first base and was able to cut down Justin Smoak trying to advance to second base.

The double play gave Laureano his sixth outfield assist of the year, tying him for the major league lead. In just 24 games, he may have already locked up the American League’s Gold Glove Award.
