Heyward is the second outfielder in franchise history to win multiple gold gloves, joining two-time victor Andre Dawson (1987 and 1988). Meanwhile, the Twins were represented by two first-time winners in Buxton and Dozier. Jones combined good speed with preternatural jumps on fly balls - he sometimes took the first step of his route before the ball even left the bat - while Inciarte uses good jumps and blazing speed to cover extensive ground and make plays in the gaps, including numerous diving catches and leaping grabs with his glove near the top of fences.

Say what you want about the bat and the contract, but Jason Heyward continues to be worth his glove's weight in gold in right field after winning his fifth career Gold Glove award Tuesday. Additionally, Heyward is the first Cub to win a Rawlings Gold Glove Award at any position in consecutive seasons since pitcher Greg Maddux (2004-06) won three in a row and the first position player to do so since first baseman Mark Grace (1995 and 1996).

LeMahieu played 153 games (151 starts) in 2017, ending the year with a.989 fielding percentage - both tops among qualified NL second basemen. He had a streak of 120 games (1,013 chances) without being charged with an error, the longest streak by a Royals first baseman, according to Elias Sports Bureau. The Platinum Glove will be awarded November 10, during the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Ceremony.
