For those of you just trying to cope with the very stark realization that the MLB has departed to its winter cave, Rawlings has announced 2016’s Gold Glove honorees. There are 9 first-timers this year, while defensive stars like Royals Catchers Salvador Perez, Rockies Third Basemen Nolan Arenado, and right fielder of the World Series champion Cubs, Jason Heyward, all snag their fourth nod. Adrian Beltre — third basemen of the Texas Rangers — leads the way with his fifth career award. It may be important to note that San Francisco Giants Catcher Buster Posey put a halt to Yadier Molina’s run of eight straight Gold Gloves. However the win for Posey completes his trophy case, as the 29-year-old has won a Rookie of the Year award, a batting title, three Silver Sluggers, a National League MVP and three championship rings.
