Nolan Arenado, Byron Buxton Among 2017 Gold Glove Award Winners

First baseman Eric Hosmer and left fielder Alex Gordon were announced as Rawlings Gold Glove winners Tuesday night on ESPN. Diamondbacks ace Zack Grienke also picked up his fourth-consecutive Gold Glove after not making an error all season and conceding just five steals.

Miami Marlins left fielder Marcell Ozuna was announced as the National League victor of the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award at his position.

Inciarte, who turned 27 on October 29, has been a fixture on defensive highlight reels and a regular on ESPN's Plays of the Day for two seasons with the Braves, and 2017 was his first season playing strictly center field and batting leadoff. He played 140 games in left field, one in right and 15 in center field this season, seeing action in center for the first time in his Major League career. He ranked third in all of baseball in defensive runs saved and second among outfielders. Inciarte had to cover a lot of ground out of necessity most nights. His.984 (320 TC/5 E) fielding percentage led all qualifying left fielders, and his 320 total chances were the most by a NL left fielder since Alfonso Soriano (359) and Jason Bay (329) in 2006. Taylor (.944) was second in that category. Simmons hadn't won since 2014, and Longoria got his first since 2010.

This examination will also help the researchers to understand why seizures develop on sleep deprivation . In total, the activity of nearly 1,500 brain cells was recorded across the 12 participants.

Heyward is the first Cubs player to win a Gold Glove at any position in consecutive seasons since pitcher Greg Maddux won three from 2004-06 (Maddux finished the 2006 campaign with the Dodgers) and the first position player to accomplish this feat since first baseman Mark Grace in 1995-96.

Sabermetric defensive statistics, combined into a SABR Defensive Index, are now a component in selecting Gold Glove winners.
