Here's the short and sweet of the Gold Glove news for Astros fans: Dallas Keuchel has won his fourth Gold Glove. He ties D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt for the most in franchise history with three. The Royals are the only American League team with at least one Rawlings Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last eight seasons (since 2011), and trail only Colorado's streak of nine straight seasons among Major League teams. "I love fielding, and I love working on it".

Ever-steady second baseman DJ LeMahieu, who is now a free agent, won his third Gold Glove in a Rockies uniform.

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 last time the Sox had three Gold Glove honorees was in 2011 when Adrian Gonzalez, Jacoby Ellsbury and Pedroia all won the award. He led all American League pitchers in total chances, while ranking tied for second in assists and tied for seventh in putouts (14).

He joins Mike Schmidt as the only NL third basemen to win at least six consecutive Gold Gloves.
