Colorado Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu, who helped lead LSU to the 2009 College World Series title, was named the victor Sunday night of the 2018 National League Gold Glove Award at second base. He also won the award in 2016 and was a finalist in 2017. The manager got a hero's welcome, starting with a greeting by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló at the airport.

Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Ian Kinsler won Gold Gloves for the World Series champion Boston Red Sox. He's the organization's first Gold Glove first baseman and just the third Braves corner infielder to capture the award.

By winning a Gold Glove, Keuchel is now eligible for the Rawlings Platinum Glove, which will be given to the top defender in each league, regardless of position.

D-backs ace Zack Greinke earned his fifth consecutive Gold Glove - his third with Arizona - after beating San Diego's Clayton Richard and Atlanta's Julio Teheran.

Wong committed nine errors in 119 games at second.

It's the third straight Gold Glove for Inciarte.

The site said of Wong: "He excels going to his left handling batted balls in the hole between first and second, as good or better than anyone in baseball".
