Nolan Arenado extended his streak of winning a Rawlings Gold Glove Award in every season of his career on Sunday, when the Wholesale Colorado Rockies Jerseys star captured the award for National League third basemen for the seventh consecutive year.
Arenado has won the award each year since he debuted in 2013. With this year’s win, he moved into sole possession of fourth place for the most Gold Gloves among third basemen and just one behind Scott Rolen for third place all time.
Only Wholesale Baltimore Orioles Jerseys legend Brooks Robinson, who won 16 Gold Gloves in a row from 1960 to ’75, and Mike Schmidt, who won 10, have more than Arenado. Robinson has the most Gold Gloves among all position players, but at just 26 years old, Arenado has a chance to catch him.
Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys veteran Alex Gordon also won his seventh career Gold Glove on Sunday, claiming the AL left fielder award for the third straight year to move into a tie for 14th-most among outfielders.

The Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys had four Gold Glove winners on their team this season, including both pitchers, Mike Leake and Zack Greinke, though the two never played with each other. Leake won the American League pitcher’s award for his time with the Wholesale Seattle Mariners Jerseys before Arizona acquired him at the trade deadline on July 31, the day the Diamondbacks dealt Greinke to the Wholesale Houston Astros Jerseys.
Shortstop Nick Ahmed, who won his second straight Gold Glove, and left fielder David Peralta were the other Diamondbacks honored Sunday. Peralta was one of three National League outfielders who won their first Gold Gloves, joining Milwaukee’s Lorenzo Cain and the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger.
The Wholesale Oakland Athletics Jerseys had a pair of winners, as first baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman both won for the second straight season. The Wholesale Cleveland Indians Jerseys had two Gold Glovers in shortstop Francisco Lindor, who won the second of his career, and catcher Roberto Perez, a first-time winner.
MINNEAPOLIS — The Wholesale Minnesota Twins Jerseys have declined a $7.5 million option on left-hander Martin Perez and made a $17.8 million qualifying offer to All-Star right-hander Jake Odorizzi.
Perez will receive a $500,000 buyout as part of a contract agreed to last winter that paid him a $3.5 million salary this year.
The 28-year-old was 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA in 29 starts and three relief appearances this year, striking out 135 and walking 67 in 165 1/3 innings. He is 53-56 with a 4.72 ERA in eight major league seasons that include 157 starts and 16 relief appearances.
Odorizzi, 29, was a career-best 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA and a career-high 178 strikeouts. He is 22-17 in two seasons since the Twins acquired him from Tampa Bay.
Minnesota also said Monday the Wholesale New York Mets Jerseys claimed left-hander Stephen Gonsalves off waivers. Minnesota right-hander Kohl Stewart refused an outright assignment to Triple-A Rochester and elected to become a free agent.
The second baseman awards went to the White Sox’s Yolmer Sanchez and the Cardinals’ Kolten Wong, who both won for the first time.
Also in the American League, Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts won for the fourth straight season, and Tampa Bay center fielder Kevin Kiermaier won his third career Gold Glove after a two-year absence.
In the National League, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won his third career Gold Glove and second in a row, while catcher J.T. Realmuto earned his first award in his first season with the Phillies after a preseason trade from the Marlins.
Managers and up to six coaches per team vote for the awards in their league and cannot choose their own players. For the first time, the defensive index from the Society for American Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Research was used, and it comprised about 25% of the vote, with the managers and coaches ballots the rest.
