Yasiel Puig hasn't even been in the majors for a full calendar year. And yet, it seems like the Dodgers' outfielder has already had a career's worth of highlights.

Puig leapt up and nearly doubled off Lucas Duda at first base. Had he done that, he would've been justified if he celebrated with a bat flip when he got back to the dugout.
