Cardinals rookie shades Major League Baseball for timing of Gold Glove Awards

Cardinals rookie shades Major League Baseball for timing of Gold Glove Awards

All of that glitter at the hot corner turned into another Gold Glove for Nolan Arenado. He ties D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt for the most in franchise history with three.

The winners for both the National and American League Gold Gloves were announced on Sunday night. 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. It was Rizzo's second Gold Glove; he also won in 2016.

Though it was perhaps a bit of a longshot to suggest that Justin Smoak would take home the Gold Glove Award for American League first baseman, it still would've been undeniably nice to have at least one Toronto Blue Jay take home an award.

Atlanta added three Gold Gloves to its surprise NL East title this season. It was the fourth tie in the history of the award.
