I don’t think we need a cute set up for this one, so let’s just get right to it. Second inning, one out. Washington’s Victor Robles laces a ball into the right field gap. It would’ve been an easy stand-up double, but Robles wanted an extra bag. He did not get it. Behold:

From the warning track. Basically flat-footed. In the air. You’ve gotta be kidding.
The Statcast data:

The throw was Harper’s sixth outfield assist of the season. He had only one assist with the Nationals last season.
