Andrelton Simmons is probably going to win the National League Gold Glove this year because of plays like this where he foiled a Marlin’s hit-and-run attempt by Jordany Valdespin, turning it into a very athletic out at second base. The cliche is cat-like reflexes, so what’s the step above that? Ninja? Ninja cat?
No matter, it was a great play to add to the Braves’ shortstop’s lengthy highlight reel.
