Kansas City Royals outfielder Hunter Renfroe showed off his cannon of an arm Wednesday night, gunning out Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman at second base with a laser beam throw.

Renfroe adeptly scoops up a right field poke from Rutschman and quickly turns around to fire a throw to second, video posted to the MLB’s Spanish language Twitter account shows.

Renfroe uncorks his throw from the warning track, pinning it directly into short stop Bobby Witt Jr.’s glove without even needing a one-hop. Witt slaps the tag on a shocked Rutschman, ending the inning.

The frozen rope shows just how talented Renfroe is. The slugging outfielder is typically regarded as a bat-first baller, but here he proves he can get it done with his glove too. (RELATED: Fan Discovers Terribly-Run MLB Franchise’s Private Document … The Contents Will Shock You)

Renfroe is looking for a bounce back year after rough 2023 culminated with the Cincinnati Reds cutting him before the season ended. He’s off to an extremely poor start at the plate so far, only managing one hit in 19 at-bats.

If he doesn’t get it together soon though, he could see himself on the outs in Kansas City. Already on his seventh team, the 32-year-old hasn’t stuck on one squad since he left the San Diego Padres in 2019. Currently batting at a .053 clip, Hunter’s gotta get it together soon. A nice arm in baseball will only get you so far if you can’t hit a lick.
