For the first time since 2008, the Indians have themselves a Gold Glove player.
It was announced today that Francisco Lindor has won his first gold glove, taking him the honors as the best defensive American League shortstop.
The always smiling Lindor is the first Indians gold glove winner since outfielder Grady Sizemore won the award eight seasons ago. He’s the first Indians shortstop to win the award since Omar Vizquel won the honors in 2001.
Lindor beat out the Tigers’ Jose Iglesias and Los Angeles’ Andrelton Simmons to earn the American League shortstop honors.
Lindor committed 12 errors in 155 games at shortstop this past season, and also was a force on offense, hitting .301 with 15 home runs, 30 doubles and 19 stolen bases in what ended up being his first full season at the Major League level.
