Buster Posey over took right time winner Yadier Molina as the Gold Glove recipient behind the plate in the National League.
Posey wasn’t the only Giant to win an Gold Glove, as double play combo, shortstop Brandon Crawford and second baseman Joe Panik both took home some gold. This is the first Gold Glove won by both Posey and Panik, and the second won by Crawford, who has now won it in back to back years.
Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado took the award for the fourth straight year, and Arizona Diamondback pitcher Zack Greinke won it for a third straight year. The World Series champion Chicago Cubs had two recipients, as outfielder Jason Heyward took home the award for the fourth time and first baseman Anthony Rizzo won the award for the first time in his career.
The other two recipients from the NL were two time winner Pittsburgh Pirates left fielder Starling Marte and first time winner Atlanta Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte.
In the American League, Cleveland Indians young star Francisco Lindor won the award at shortstop. He became the first Indians player to win the award since 2008 when Grandy Sizemore won it.
Other first time winners include Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland, Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler, Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner, and Boston right fielder Mookie Betts. Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre received the award for the fifth time.
Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez won the award for the fourth straight year, Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel took it home for the third straight year, and Tampa Bay center fielder Kevin Kiermaier has now won the award in back-to-back years.
