Royals' Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon awarded with Rawlings Gold Gloves

Nolan Arenado, Byron Buxton Among 2017 Gold Glove Award Winners

Rendon and Taylor come up short for first Gold Gloves

Barnhart was the only Red to win a Gold Glove this year.

Alex Gordon, now a left fielder for the Kansas City Royals, has been one heck of a defensive player since arriving in the majors.

Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Marcus Stroman is a Gold Glove victor for the first time in his career.

Say what you want about the bat and the contract, but Jason Heyward continues to be worth his glove's weight in gold in right field after winning his fifth career Gold Glove award Tuesday. In 2017, he also ranked third among AL left fielders with a.993 fielding percentage, committing just two errors in 269 chances, while among AL outfielders he tied for eighth in games played (147), ranked ninth in innings (1248.2) and was 10th in putouts (276).

Heyward is the first Cubs player to win a Gold Glove at any position in consecutive seasons since pitcher Greg Maddux won three from 2004-06 (Maddux finished the 2006 campaign with the Dodgers) and the first position player to accomplish this feat since first baseman Mark Grace in 1995-96. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Gold Glove Award selection process, as part of its new collaboration with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).

Arenado became the first infielder to win five straight Gold Gloves at the start of his career.

Managers and up to six coaches from each team participated in the voting, with the stipulation that they couldn't vote for players from their own team.
