Marlins’ Jesus Aguilar is actually making an attempt to steal Carson Kelly’s characters from D-backs
Caught in action.
We know that sometimes batters can take a look at the catcher’s signs to get as much information as possible. It’s only part of baseball, after all. But Jesús Aguilar took it to the next level on Thursday.
When Diamondbacks catcher Carson Kelly reached the first base, Aguilar decided to take a look at the catcher’s signs – by lifting Kelly’s wrist cheat sheet.

Kelly replies in disbelief: “What are you doing, man?”
Kelly’s disapproval of Aguilar glancing at it leads to a comical reaction from Aguilar, who looks like a kid caught with his hand in a cookie jar before breakfast.
Aguilar is one of the funniest personalities in baseball so there’s nothing to read here. But it’s not the first time Aguilar has tried to steal signs. About a month ago, during a game against the Mets, Aguilar stole an index card straight from Dom Smith’s back pocket – presumably a defensive positioning card that players carry on the field.
The Marlins would win the game 5-1.
If Aguilar continues like this, he may have a role to play in a reboot of Ocean’s 11.
