Yoenis Cespedes with Outfield Assist of the Year

by Jason Epstein

Talk about making up for a fielding miscue.

In Anaheim last night, Yoenis Cespedes (a.k.a., The Cuban Missile) launched a rocket from some 300 feet down the left-field line to nail Howie Kendrick at home plate in the eighth inning of a tie game.

I can’t recall a more impressive throw from the outfield this season. Can you?

The Angels got the last laugh, however, winning 2–1 in 14 innings, courtesy of a Collin Cowgill walk-off home run.
