Watch: Dozier turns a double play with this awesome glove flip

What a turn by Dozier.

We've already seen Byron Buxton and Max Kepler show off the leather for the Twins this season, but on Saturday second baseman Brian Dozier showed he can make a highlight-reel play too.

During the bottom of the fourth inning, Dozier started a double play with this insane glove flip, check it out.

Dozier is coming off a monster 2016 season where he slugged 42 home runs. He's off to a slow start in the young season as he entered Saturday's game with just 3 hits in his first 16 at bats.

But as a team, the Twins are off to their best start since the magical 1987 season. They also began the day as the only undefeated team in baseball.
