Rizzo wins prestigious Rawlings Platinum Glove Award

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo will have to buy a new house for all of the trophies that he has been accumulating this offseason.

The Rawlings Platinum Award is a fan vote of the best defensive player of all the Rawlings 2016 Gold Glove Award winners. Rizzo won the award for the National League and Eric Lindor won it for the American League.

He was already named to the Gold Glove Award, Defensive Player of the Year at 1B, Silver Slugger Award earlier in the week.

Rizzo batted .292 with 43 doubles, 32 homers, and 109 RBIs on the season.
