The Cincinnati Reds led the National
League with three Gold Glove winners, topped by the eighth award
for third baseman Scott Rolen.
Teammates joining Rolen on the squad were second baseman
Brandon Phillips and pitcher Bronson Arroyo. Phillips won his
second Gold Glove, while Arroyo was honored for the first time.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Colorado Rockies each had two
players named the best at their defensive positions in voting by
Major League Baseball managers and coaches, Jarden Corp.’s
Rawlings, which sponsors the award, said in a news release.
St. Louis first baseman Albert Pujols won his second Gold
Glove and teammate Yadier Molina, a catcher, was named for the
Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez each won their first Gold Gloves.
The NL’s Gold Glove outfield was completed by the
Philadelphia Phillies’ Shane Victorino, his third such honor,
and the Houston Astros’ Michael Bourn, who was named for the
second straight season.
