NEW YORK (AP) — World Series MVP Salvador Perez and Kansas City Royals teammates Eric Hosmer and Alcides Escobar have won Gold Gloves.
The awards for fielding excellence were announced Tuesday by Rawlings.
Yoenis Cespedes won the AL prize in left field even though he was traded from Detroit to the New York Mets on July 31.
Perez was honored for the third consecutive season as the AL catcher, as was Hosmer at first base. Escobar won for the first time at shortstop.
The other AL winners were second baseman Jose Altuve and pitcher Dallas Keuchel of Houston, Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado, Tampa Bay center fielder Kevin Kiermaier and Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun.
In the NL, catcher Yadier Molina and right fielder Jason Heyward won from St. Louis. Arizona also had two winners with first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and center fielder A.J. Pollock.
Other NL winners were Miami second baseman Dee Gordon, San Francisco shortstop Brandon Crawford, Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado, Pittsburgh left fielder Starling Marte and Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke.
