WATCH: Sonny Gray makes ridiculous barehand play
Athletics righty Sonny Gray made an awesome grab to throw out the speedy Jonathan Villar on Thursday.
Great barehand plays are usually reserved for non-first base infielders coming in on a slowly hit ground ball, but Athletics right-hander Sonny Gray make a ridiculous grab-and-throw against the Astros on Thursday night. First baseman Daric Barton put an exclamation point on it with a great stretch:
That's Jonathan Villar running, and he is absolutely no slow. In fact, I'd go so far as to say he's very fast. The kid can run, which makes Gray's grab-and-throw all that more awesome. Barton gets bonus points for his ... flexibility.
