Gold Glove


Manny Machado won his second Gold Glove award at third base in the last three years.


BALTIMORE –- J.J. Hardy will get to run down the orange carpet. He’ll also be presented with his Gold Glove for his great play at shortstop last season. But, he won’t get to play.


Gold Gloves, as much as any baseball award, are so subjective that snubbed feelings almost always ensue.


For a team that just landed three Gold Gloves in J.J. Hardy, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters, the Orioles didn’t rank particularly high in overall American League defensive categories.


The best offensive season of Adam LaRoche's career may actually have helped the Nationals first baseman be recognized at long last for his fielding prowess.
