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.

Dickerson had a 1.1 dWAR this season according to Baseball-Reference, the first season of his career that he has been above a negative rating.


Unfortunately for Smoak and the Jays, though, Oakland's Matt Olson, who was spectacular almost all season long, was given the award, also edging out Mitch Moreland of the Boston Red Sox, who himself won a Gold Glove Award in 2016.

Meanwhile, Mookie Betts and the Boston Red Sox just keep winning.


He said he was honored to have won the award and proud of the hard work he's given this season.

Kolten Wong was a finalist for the National League's second base gold glove.


Two of the three Arizona Diamondbacks nominated for Gold Gloves took home the hardware on Sunday night. But if the Gold Glove was his final achievement as an Astro, then it is not a bad way to go out. This marks the fourth time in the last five seasons for Keuchel to be named the top defensive pitcher in the American League. At second, he had 373 total chances, with 163 putouts, 204 assists, only made six errors, turned 60 double plays, and had a fielding percentage of.984. Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel and Los Angeles Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons also won in the AL.
