Rawlings Gold Glove Award Winners Announced

Here's a full list of the 2018 Gold Glove Award winners.

Keuchel is the only pitcher in franchise history to win a Gold Glove Award and is just the fourth Astro at any position to win four-or-more Gold Glove Awards, joining second baseman Craig Biggio (1994-97), outfielder Cesar Cedeño (1972-76) and third baseman Doug Rader (1970-74). Teammate Andrew Benintendi also was nominated, but Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon took home his sixth Gold Glove instead.

The 2018 Gold Glove Award is the third of LeMahieu's career, as he was also the National League recipient at second base in 2014 and in 2017.

The 26-year-old Betts won for the third straight year.

By winning a Gold Glove, Keuchel is now eligible for the Rawlings Platinum Glove, which will be given to the top defender in each league, regardless of position. 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. Wong finished as a runner up to victor D.J. LeMahieu of the Colorado Rockies.

Corey Dickerson has been named as the Rawlings Gold Glove victor for National League left fielders.

The site said of Wong: "He excels going to his left handling batted balls in the hole between first and second, as good or better than anyone in baseball".

The Cubs have now had a Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last three seasons. It was a similar situation at catcher in the AL, with Salvador Perez winning for Kansas City for the fifth time after he was unseated by Martin Maldonado previous year.
