Oakland A’s center fielder Ramón Laureano showed off a ridiculous throwing arm in his rookie 2018 season and had nine assists in just 47 games. Well, it hasn’t taken long in 2019 for Laureano to show off his cannon and make game-changing throws.

On Monday night, Laureano threw a 96-mph strike to nail the Boston Red Sox’s Xander Bogaerts at the plate.

And on Tuesday night, Bogaerts cranked one off the center field wall that appeared to be a for-sure triple. But once again, Laureano made an unbelievable throw to get Bogaerts. Oakland had a 1-0 lead with one out in the ninth and would go on to win by that score, so this was a game-saving throw from Laureano:

At some point, you’d have to think that the league would stop challenging Laureano’s arm. Then again, it seems Bogaerts didn’t learn his lesson from the night before, so maybe not.

Laureano’s defense has played a big part in the A’s (5-3) winning four straight games and shutting out the defending champion Red Sox on consecutive nights.
