Four Indians Shut Out in Gold Glove Voting

It was not a banner night at the polls for the Indians when it came to Gold Glove awards, as four different Indians were denied the honor of winning the annual award at their respective positions.

At third base, Jose Ramirez was one of four finalists, but the award instead went to Tampa Bay Rays cornerman Evan Longoria. Orioles 3B Manny Machado was also up for the award.

Ramirez posted a .972 fielding percentage with six errors and 146 assists in 213 chances at third base.

Angels Andrelton Simmons won the American League Gold Glove at shortstop, shutting out Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor. Elvis Andrus of the Rangers was up for the award as well.

Lindor led the American League in double plays with 111, and also was second in fielding percentage (.984) and had just 10 errors on the season.

Eric Hosmer of the Royals won the award at first base, the fourth time in his career he’s won the award. Indians first basemen Carlos Santana was up for the award, along with Mitch Moreland of the Red Sox.

Finally at catcher, despite leading the AL in fewest stolen bases allowed (33) and stolen base percentage (.579), Indians catcher Yan Gomes failed to win a Gold Glove, as the award went to Angles catcher Martin Maldonado.

Salvador Perez of Kansas City was also in the running for the award at catcher.
