Chicago Cubs minor leaguers Pete Crow-Armstrong won the Minor League 2022 Rawlings Gold Glove Award on Tuesday.
He was one of nine players to receive the prestigious defensive award.
PCA recorded 194 putouts and six outfield assists in 91 games in center field for Single-A Myrtle Beach and High-A South Bend.
