Jason Heyward was recognized Tuesday night for his elite defense as the Cubs' right fielder was named a National League Gold Glove Award recipient for the fifth time.

Hosmer was awarded his fourth Gold Glove.

For 4 straight seasons from 2011-2014, Barnhart was rated by Baseball America the best defensive catcher in the organization and following the 2011 season received Minor League Baseball's prestigious Rawlings Gold Glove Award for catchers.

Hosmer led the major leagues this season with 34 scoops, a statistic that evaluates how many errant throws a first baseman turns into an out. It is the eighth consecutive season in which at least one Rockies player has won a Gold Glove, the fifth year in which there have been two winners on the Rockies, the second campaign in which Arenado and LeMahieu both won (also 2014).

This is Hosmer's fourth Gold Glove, which ties catcher Salvador Perez for third-most among Royals players. Since that time, Heyward leads all of Major League Baseball with 138 defensive runs saved in the outfield.

Gordon previously won four straight Gold Gloves during 2011-14.

The Royals have won a total of 32 Rawlings Gold Gloves in franchise history, with 13 different players honored. The SABR Defensive Index comprises approximately 25 percent of the overall selection total, while the managers' and coaches' vote continues to carry the majority.
