Watch Yu Darvish show off a full Major League repertoire ... with his left hand

You may have already seen Yu Darvish switch things up and throw left-handed in the past -- he even took a bullpen session at Fenway Park once.
But you may not know just how good Lefty Darvish is. Throwing with his off hand isn't just a neat party trick: He's got a full pitching repertoire, as he showed off before a World Series game at Dodger Stadium last fall (you can watch the whole video here):

It's all there: The fastball (well, "fast" -- but 68 mph isn't bad for his weak hand), several breaking balls and even a changeup. We can only hope he'll go Full Venditte next year.
