Twins CF Byron Buxton named MLB Defensive Player of the Year

Wilson, which established this award in 2012, considers various defensive metrics in determining the winners (nine individuals and one team).

Maldonado and Buxton also won Gold Glove awards earlier this week.

Arenado was one of two Rockies infielders to win an award, with DJ LeMahieu winning the Wilson Trophy at second base.

Byron Buxton received another honor for his outstanding fielding on Friday, as the Twins center fielder was named Major League Baseball's Wilson Defensive Player of the Year.

Completing the infield honorees were catcher Martin Maldonado of the Los Angeles Angels, Cleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana and Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons.

The National League champion Dodgers were named the Wilson Defensive Team of the Year.

Puig was beaten out by Chicago Cubs right fielder Jason Heyward for a Gold Glove.

The award was created in 2012 with one going to each league, but in 2014 the award was condensed to one overall victor. That formula includes defensive WAR (25 percent), Defensive Runs Saved (25 percent), Inside Edge fielding ratings (20 percent), Inside Edge arm ratings (20 percent) and fielding percentage (10 percent).
