The Dodgers called up Yasiel Puig on Monday to not only help their injury-depleted outfield, but also to give a disappointing team a shot in the arm. The 22-year-old went 2 for 4 with a pair of singles at the plate, but he saved his best for last. Here is Puig's outstanding game-ending double play in right field to finish off the Padres (bonus: Vin Scully on the call):

I can't be the only one thinking it, so I'm going to say it: That was downright vintage Vladimir Guerrero-esque right there. Puig is some kind of athlete.

Related: I don't think I've ever seen Adrian Gonzalez that happy. That's not a knock; he's just not normally one to wear his emotions on his sleeve.
