Nolan Arenado is part of MLB history…
A record five St. Louis Cardinals players, including the 30-year-old Puerto Rican and Cuban American professional baseball player, have won National League Gold Gloves.
Arenado, the team’s third baseman, was joined by fellow teammates Paul Goldschmidt, Tommy Edman, Harrison Bader and Tyler O’Neill in earning the fielding honor.
Arenado won his ninth Gold Glove, his first since he was traded last winter by the Colorado Rockies.
Chicago White Sox pitcher Dallas Keuchel won his fifth Gold Glove, and San Francisco shortstop Brandon Belt won his fourth.
Atlanta pitcher Max Fried, who got the win last week in the World Series finale, won his second in a row. Adam Duvall, traded to the Braves in July from Miami, won in right.
Pittsburgh’s Jacob Stallings won at catcher.
Houston’s Yuli Gurriel won at first to go along with his American League batting title, and Astros teammate Carlos Correa won at shortstop, his first.
Oakland’s Matt Chapman won at third and Sean Murphy at catcher, and Toronto’s Marcus Semien at second after signing with the Blue Jays and moving from shortstop.
Kansas City center fielder Michael A. Taylor and left fielder Andrew Benintendi won their first Gold Gloves. Right fielder Joey Gallo, traded by Texas to the New York Yankees in July, won his second straight.
