GOODYEAR, Ariz.– This prank was no match for outfielder Tyler Naquin’s amazing catching abilities.

Cleveland Indians players Mike Clevinger and Jason Kipnis thought they could fool their teammate with a prank they saw on Instagram.

“You get someone to hold a cup of water against the ceiling with a broomstick.. then leave them there.. so if/when they move, the water pours on them! Immediately we thought @tyler.naquin would be the perfect person to get!” Kipnis posted on his Instagram account.

But the mischievous pair underestimated Naquin.

So @mikeanthony and I saw this video on IG of this prank. You get someone to hold a cup of water against the ceiling with a broomstick..then leave them there.. so if/when they move, the water pours on them! Immediately we thought @tyler.naquin would be the perfect person to get! We created some dumb card trick in 10 seconds before video ….. And this sob pulls off a miracle escape somehow like an absolute G!! #dontunderestimatethekid #thoughtwehadhim

As Clevinger cracked up at leaving the outfielder in their trap, Naquin, with a giant grin on his face, moved the stick and snagged the cup of water without spilling a drop.

Kipnis called it a “miracle escape.”
