Pirates’ Corey Dickerson Wins First Gold Glove Award
Nov 08 2018
It was the fourth tie in the history of the award.
His Gold Glove streak is the longest active streak in the Majors, the longest since Yadier Molina won eight straight from 2008-15.
Rizzo won for the first time in 2016, when he was also the Platinum Glove Award victor for the entire National League.
Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Ian Kinsler won Gold Gloves for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
Though it was perhaps a bit of a longshot to suggest that Justin Smoak would take home the Gold Glove Award for American League first baseman, it still would've been undeniably nice to have at least one Toronto Blue Jay take home an award. Also, Keith Hernandez will be inducted into the Rawlings Gold Glove Award Hall of Fame as part of the night's festivities.
Cubs second baseman Javier Baez and right fielderJason Heyward were also finalists at their positions but didn't win the award. "If you are rewarded at the end of the year with an award, then it's a plus".
He produced an.877 OPS during the first half of the season but just a.701 in the second half. We'll see. I'm not holding my breath if I'm a Gold Glove-winner or not. LeMahieu, who has two Gold Glove to his credit (2014, 2017), made four errors in 128 games.
D-backs' Jon Jay was the third D-back nominated for his play in right field, but lost out to Atlanta Braves right fielder Nick Markakis. Kansas City's Alex Gordon earned the honor in left field, the sixth of his career.
