ST.

Recognized as the best defensive players at their respective positions, this year’s class of winners includes six former Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners and 14 first-time winners. Nolan Arenado of the St. Louis Cardinals is the consecutive leader with 10 consecutive awards, and the Cleveland Guardians have won the most team awards with four.

This year marks the first time utility players have been included in the list of Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners. Rawlings announced the addition of the utility role to the list of award recipients last month.

“It’s been a great year for professional baseball, and there’s been no shortage of incredible, jaw-dropping defensive plays from the game’s established veterans and young phenoms alike,” said mike thompson, Marketing Director of Rawlings. “We congratulate all of this year’s Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners and welcome the first 14 winners to this exclusive legion of great defenders.”

To determine the winners of the 18 defensive position awards, each team’s manager and up to six coaches on his staff voted from a group of qualified players in their league and could not vote for players from their own team. In 2013, Rawlings added the SABR Defensive Index™ (SDI) to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process, which represents approximately 25% of the overall selection total, with manager and coach votes continuing to hold the majority.

To identify utility award winners, Rawlings worked with SABR to create a specialized defensive formula separate from the traditional selection process for post Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners. Using the SABR formula and additional defensive stats, Rawlings selected a utility winner from each league.

“The Society for American Baseball Research is honored to provide the analytical data and statistics each season that help identify the best defensive athletes in the game,” said Scott Bush, CEO of SABR. “We are proud to play a part in nominating the winners of the Rawlings Gold Glove Award and offer our congratulations to all 20 winners this year.”
