Jason Heyward wins National League Gold Glove award

Catcher Salvador Perez was up for his fifth straight award, but the voters chose the Angels' Martin Maldonado, who was in his first full season as a team's starting catcher. Fans will be able to select one player among the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners from each league. He was seeking to become the first Detroit infielder to win back-to-back Gold Gloves since Lou Whitaker (1983-1985). The Platinum Glove will be awarded November 10, during the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Ceremony.

Stroman joins R.A. Dickey as the only Blue Jays pitcher to win a Gold Glove. Hosmer is tied with the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez for most Gold Gloves among active first basemen.

Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler missed out on a Gold Glove for his defensive work this past season. In 124 games played in the outfield this season, Heyward posted a fielding percentage of.992 while committing just 2 errors, turning 5 double plays and finishing with 6 outfield assists. 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.

The Saints scored on an 8-yard run by Alvin Kamara on the opening possession and a 1-yard run by Ingram later in the first half. Ingram's score capped an 80-yard drive and was set up by a 19-yard reception by Josh Hill to the 1-yard line.

The Royals have won a total of 32 Rawlings Gold Gloves in franchise history, with 13 different players honored. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process, as part of its new collaboration with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).

Winners are determined using a combination of advanced metrics (25 percent) and coach and manager voting (75 percent).
