Cardinals rookie shades Major League Baseball for timing of Gold Glove Awards

Jackie Bradley Jr, Mookie Betts, Ian Kinsler all win Gold Gloves

Boston Red Sox get three Gold Glove winners

In August, Wong made it known he thought he deserved the honor, telling the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "I think Major League Baseball should realize if I don't win the Gold Glove there is something wrong with it". It was Rizzo's second Gold Glove; he also won in 2016.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won his second career Gold Glove on Sunday night, tying the Braves' Freddie Freeman for the award at their position.

The Cubs have now had a Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last three seasons. While he was not named the best left fielder in the American League, Benintendi was real close and has a great chance to win in the coming years.

Instead of Benintendi winning the award, Royals left fielder Alex Gordon won his sixth.

D-backs ace Zack Greinke earned his fifth consecutive Gold Glove - his third with Arizona - after beating San Diego's Clayton Richard and Atlanta's Julio Teheran.

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez and right fielder Jason Heyward were also finalists at their positions but didn't win the award.

Red Sox fans definitely wanted to see the last Gold Glove to go to Benintendi so that their entire outfield could have been recognized for their elite defense.

He produced an.877 OPS during the first half of the season but just a.701 in the second half. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process as part of its new collaboration with the SABR. It was a similar situation at catcher in the AL, with Salvador Perez winning for Kansas City for the fifth time after he was unseated by Martin Maldonado previous year.
