Alex Gordon wins fifth Gold Glove award

He led all left fielders with an ultimate zone rating of 11.5 and was third in defensive runs saved (9). Gordon won his fifth Gold Glove Award, coming back after consecutive years from 2011-14.

Five teams had a pair of winners: the Angels, Diamondbacks, Rockies, Royals and Twins.

Inciarte beat out center-field finalists Billy Hamilton of the Reds and Michael Taylor of the Nationals to become the first courageous to win consecutive Gold Gloves since shortstop Andrelton Simmons in 2013-2014, and first Braves outfielder to do it since Andruw Jones won 10 in a row through 2007.

The awards mark the 31st and 32nd in Royals history, which have been claimed by 13 different players.

The ex-Husker continued to make some incredible catches in left field. Despite leading the league in assists by a first baseman and finishing second in the AL in double plays turned at 1B, Santana appeared to fall victim to Hosmer's reputation with the glove. 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.

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford picked up his third-consecutive Gold Glove, in the process becoming the first National League shortstop to three-peat since Jimmy Rollins in 2007-09. The SABR Defensive Index comprises approximately 25 percent of the overall selection total, while the managers' and coaches' vote continues to carry the majority.
