Clayton Kershaw can make jaw-dropping plays with one hand behind his back (literally)

Right now, we are living in a baseball Renaissance. Well, no one is rediscovering classical texts or painting the ceiling of Rogers Centre, so maybe it's more accurate to say that we are living in an age of baseball Renaissance men. Position players are pitching and pitchers are hitting (sometimes in the very same at-bat). 

But for more proof, let us look no further than Tuesday's Dodgers-Athletics game. Here's defending NL MVP and Cy Young Award-winner Clayton Kershaw gunning for a Gold Glove as well:

Well ... maybe that Gold Glove will have to wait another year. In the bottom of the third inning, he had a bit of a mishap trying to field a hit off Danny Valencia's bat.
