His streak of six consecutive Gold Gloves to begin his career is the second-longest streak in Major League history, trailing Ichiro Suzuki's streak of 10-straight Gold Gloves to begin his Major League career. You can understand why people would rather watch that live and find out who won Gold Gloves later.
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.
With the win, Greinke ties Ron Guidry, Phil Niekro and Kenny Rogers for seventh all-time among pitchers to win the award. In 313 chances in 2018, he committed five errors for a.984 fielding percentage.
Cubs second baseman Javier Baez and right fielder Jason Heyward were also finalists at their positions but didn't win the award. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process as part of its new collaboration with the SABR.
Here's a full list of the 2018 Gold Glove Award winners. First baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman were recognized for the Athletics, and second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and third baseman Nolan Arenao won for the Rockies.
Kinsler, who came over to the Red Sox from the Angels, claimed the award for the second time in the last three seasons despite playing in just 128 games.
