We Might Have The Worst Throw Of The MLB Season So Far

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tyler O'Neill is known for his musclebound frame and prodigious right-handed power. The 23-year-old Canada native might need to work on his throws a bit though.

Playing center field in tonight's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, O'Neill tried to throw out a base runner heading home. Instead, he uncorked a missile to nowhere.

O'Neill's throw was not only off-line, it was way high and had too much on it. It wound up one-hopping the backstop.

On the bright side, O'Neill clearly has a pretty strong arm. He just might wanna turn it down a bit the next time he has a play at the plate.

O'Neill is playing center tonight in place of Harrison Bader. He's coming off a 2-for-4 performance in yesterday's win over the Cincinnati Reds, which included his first home run of the season.

The Cardinals trail the Brewers 6-2 in the top of the third inning at Miller Park. Mike Moustakas and Christian Yelich have each blasted their sixth homers of the season for Milwaukee.

Paul Goldschmidt has hit his seventh for the Cardinals.
