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.
