GIF: Andrelton Simmons's arm is kind of strong

Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons is of course a shorstop of seemingly boundless defensive abilities. Among his merits at the position is a throwing arm that may be artlessly described as "stronger than something that is very strong." For evidence of this poorly worded claim, please do witness the play he made in the second inning against the Mets on Wednesday night ...

Yes, it helps that catcher Travis D'Arnaud was the one taking to wing out of the batter's box, but, yes, that's a throw from the deep in the hole and from one knee.

Andrelton Simmons, you see, is good at throwing things -- baseballs, in particular.
