Tigers infielder Danny Worth flashes a nasty knuckleball

Wasn't expecting that.

Danny Worth is a utility infielder. He might be the very utility infielderiest of utility infielders. He plays all over the infield, can't hit, and seems pleasant enough. Those are all qualifications for a pure utility infielder.

He moonlights as a knuckleball viking, though.
