(Colo)-Arenado, Gonzalez win Gold Gloves

By: Andrew Lacy Posted at: 10/29/2013 10:28 PM
Colorado Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez and third baseman Nolan Arenado were awarded National League Gold Glove Awards Tuesday as the top defensive players at their positions.

Arenado is just the tenth rookie to earn the honor and the first since Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. For Gonzalez it's his second in a row and third of his career.

The award is voted on by major league coaches, who are not allowed to select players from their own teams. Sabermetrics were included in the selection process for the first time this year, with the SABR Defensive Index making up 25 percent of the selection total.
