Tyler Heineman might have a ways to go to earn himself a spot in the Arizona Diamondbacks' opening day roster -- but he's already done more than enough to impress his teammates.

On Sunday, the D-backs posted a video of the 27-year-old catcher performing a card trick in front of a bunch of enthralled teammates. He had D-backs pitcher Robbie Ray pick a card from a standard 52-card deck, memorize it, sign it, and place it back in the deck.

Pretty standard so far, right? Well, Heineman went quite a bit further than that, leaving his teammates dumbfounded as to how he pulled off a trick none of them had apparently seen before.

Observe:

Heineman also uses his magic powers for good beyond bonding with his teammates. Last month, he helped raise $80,000 for team Prime Time, which assists at-risk children and teens in low-income areas in Los Angeles.
