Looking through the 2018 Gold Glove winners

Looking through the 2018 Gold Glove winners”

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and catcher Martín Maldonado were also finalists for Gold Glove Awards, which were awarded to third baseman Matt Chapman and catcher Salvador Pérez. Winners were unveiled during a live, one-hour "Baseball Tonight - The 2018 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Announcement Show" on ESPN presented by Dick's Sporting Goods. The Royals are the only American League team with at least one Rawlings Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last eight seasons (since 2011), and trail only Colorado's streak of nine straight seasons among Major League teams. This will be his second big league job as a hitting coach after holding the same position for the Washington Nationals from 2009-13.

Arenado is now tied with Buddy Bell and Eric Chavez for the third longest Gold Glove streak by any third baseman.

His three Gold Gloves are the most by a middle infielder in franchise history.

For the third time in his career, Keuchel went a full season without committing an error (also 2013, 2016), successfully handling 41 total chances with 27 assists in 34 starts in 2018.

Three Gold Gloves ranks third among active second basemen (most: four, Dustin Pedroia and Brandon Phillips). "Every day I work with [outfield coach] Mitch Maier to be the best defender I can be on a daily basis". Voting opens at 9 p.m. CT on November 4th and will end at 9 p.m. CT on November 8th.

Fans can now vote for the Rawlings Platinum Glove Award™ victor presented by the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) in each League on Rawlings.com. The SABR Defensive Index comprises approximately 25 percent of the overall selection total, while the managers and coaches vote continues to carry the majority.
