Ozuna won the Gold Glove Award as the National League's top left fielder while two other Marlins, second baseman Dee Gordon and right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, fell short of receiving the same honor.

After having stellar seasons on the defensive side of the ball, Colorado Rockies superstar third baseman Nolan Arenado and second baseman DJ LeMahieu won Gold Glove honors at their respective positions for their efforts on Tuesday night.

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton and second baseman Brian Dozier have been named recipients of the 2017 American League Rawlings Gold Glove Award. Meanwhile, the Twins were represented by two first-time winners in Buxton and Dozier.

Goldschmidt, 30, captured his third Gold Glove distinction to cap a stellar season that puts him firmly in the MVP conversation.

The Red Sox star had a.987 fielding percentage with eight assists and only five errors. The Platinum Glove will be awarded November 10, during the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Ceremony.


Once again, the man in right field for the Cubs in 2017 is among the best fielders in all of Major League Baseball. Barnhart is the first Cincinnati Reds catcher since Johnny Bench in 1977 to win a Gold Glove.

Only Frank White has won more Gold Gloves in franchise history. He had a streak of 120 games (1,013 chances) without being charged with an error, the longest streak by a Royals first baseman, according to Elias Sports Bureau. Hosmer's four Rawlings Gold Glove Awards are tied with Adrian Gonzalez for most among active first basemen.

The award is the fourth in a row for Heyward, who won with the Cardinals in 2015 and with the Braves before that.

Managers and up to six coaches from each team participated in the voting, with the stipulation that they couldn't vote for players from their own team. In addition, a sabermetric component accounts for about 25 percent of the vote.
