Manny Machado can catch anything, up to and including the flying bat of Adam Jones

In the top of the first inning of Baltimore's game against the Mets on Wednesday afternoon, Adam Jones swung, missed and lost control of his bat, sending it flying toward the netting near the Orioles' dugout. A little embarrassing, sure, but nothing we haven't seen before:

Hey, he didn't win two Gold Glove Awards for nothing.
