Astros: Dallas Keuchel wins his fourth Rawlings Gold Glove award

Jackie Bradley Jr, Mookie Betts, Ian Kinsler all win Gold Gloves Red Sox get 3 Gold Glove winners

"Since the award's inception in 1957, it has become the standard by which defensive plays are measured, and to this day the award continues to be one of the most iconic awards in all of sports".

The other winners in the National League were Chicago Cubs' Anthony Rizzo and Braves' Freddie Freeman at first base (tie), Colorado Rockies second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and third baseman Nolan Arenado, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina, Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte and Pittsburgh Pirates left fielder Corey Dickerson. The 45-year-old Eckstein spent the last two seasons serving as Minnesota's minor league hitting coordinator.

That elite defense was rewarded on Sunday as the Gold Glove Award winners were announced and Red Sox players took home a lot of that hardware.

The Cubs have now had a Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last three seasons. It was the fourth tie in the history of the award.

Arenado is the seventh third baseman in Major League Baseball history to win at least six Gold Gloves, the third NL third baseman to accomplish the feat (Scott Rolen, Mike Schmidt).

The Gansu provincial authorities demanded examination on risky sections of expressways across the province. The cause of the accident is yet to be known and a probe has been initiated in the matter.

DJ LeMahieu of the Rockies won the Gold Glove at second base, and Nick Markakis of the Braves was the victor in right field.

"I'm honored to win the Rawlings Gold Glove this year, and excited to share this award with Salvy", Gordon said.

The SABR Defensive Index, which, according to the SABR Twitter, was used to choose the winners, wasn't exactly kind to Smoak.

As noted by Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, Keuchel joins Craig Biggio, Cesar Cedeno, and Doug Rader as Astros with four or more Gold Gloves in club history.

The winners are determined by combining votes from Major League managers and coaches with a sabermetric component.
