Anthony Rizzo wins 2018 gold glove award

Anthony Rizzo and Freddie Freeman actually tied for the 2018 Rawlings Gold Glove Award at first base in the National League which was announced Sunday night on ESPN. It was the fourth time in history that there was a tie in the Gold Glove voting.

The Cubs have now had a Gold Glove Award winner in each of the last three seasons, as right fielder Jason Heyward was a winner in 2016 and 2017 while Rizzo won the Award for the first time in 2016.

It was Rizzo's second career gold glove award of his standout career. He is the third first baseman in Cubs history to win the award alongside 4-time winner Mark Grace and 2-time winner Derrek Lee.

For 2018, Rizzo hit .283 with 25 homers, 101 RBIs, and had a .376 on-base percentage. Defensively, he had 1287 total chances, 1133 putouts, 147 assists, and only seven errors for a fielding percentage of .995.

Rizzo won the Gold Glove and Platinum Glove Award back in 2016.

In other Cubs news, Javier Baez lost out on the gold glove award at second base to D.J. LeMahieu. Heyward also didn't win a gold glove as Nick Markakis won instead. Don't worry about Heyward because he already has five gold gloves during his career.
