The 32-year-old beat Manny Machado of the Baltimore Orioles and Jose Ramirez of the Cleveland Indians to win the award. Fans will be able to select one player among the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners from each league. Diamondbacks ace Zack Grienke also picked up his fourth-consecutive Gold Glove after not making an error all season and conceding just five steals.

Stroman joins R.A. Dickey as the only Blue Jays pitcher to win a Gold Glove.

Goldschmidt, 30, captured his third Gold Glove distinction to cap a stellar season that puts him firmly in the MVP conversation.

Ozuna led all NL left fielders this season in games played (152), games started (151), innings (1,335.0), total chances (320) and putouts (305).
