Justin Smoak edged out by Oakland’s Matt Olson for AL Gold Glove

Oakland and Colorado each had two Gold Glove winners in the infield.

Rawlings Sporting Goods Company, Inc., announced the winners for the 2018 Rawlings Gold Glove Award, honoring the best individual fielding performances at each position in the American League and National League. The Royals are the only American League team with at least one Rawlings Gold Glove Award victor in each of the last eight seasons (since 2011), and trail only Colorado's streak of nine straight seasons among Major League teams.

Catcher Martin Maldonado and third baseman Alex Bregman were also in the running for a Gold Glove award this year, but catcher Salvador Perez and third baseman Matt Chapman came out ahead in the award final tally. He also ranked tied for second in assists (378), third in total chances per nine innings (4.77), fourth in double plays (90) and fifth in putouts (209).

Corey Dickerson has been named as the Rawlings Gold Glove victor for National League left fielders. LeMahieu's three Gold Gloves are the most by a middle infielder in franchise history.

But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. "Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers". The honor came as a surprise to the " Thor " star.

But if the Gold Glove was his final achievement as an Astro, then it is not a bad way to go out.

The SABR Defensive Index, which, according to the SABR Twitter, was used to choose the winners, wasn't exactly kind to Smoak.

His streak of six consecutive Gold Gloves to begin his career is the second-longest streak in history, trailing only Ichiro Suzuki's streak of 10 straight to begin his major-league career.

Along with votes cast by NL managers and players, the winners were determined with the help of defensive metrics.
