-- Nolan Arenado, Jason Heyward and Alex Gordon each won a fifth career Rawlings Gold Glove Award on Tuesday night.
"Obviously, five, it's a pretty special number," Arenado said. "It means a lot. ... Right now I want to try to win as many as I can while I'm healthy."
Heyward joins Andre Dawson as the only Cubs outfielder to win consecutive Gold Gloves, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
This marks the 60th anniversary of the award, given to the best defensive players at their respective positions. This year's honorees feature 12 previous winners and six first-time winners:
World Series champions Houston Astros and NL champions Los Angeles Dodgers were both shut out. Houston pitcher Dallas Keuchel had won the last three years. Meanwhile, the Twins were represented by two first-time winners in Buxton and Dozier.
"This is a special moment," Buxton said.
Barnhart, the Reds' first catcher to win since Hall of Famer Johnny Bench in 1977, also became the second different catcher ( San Francisco Giants' Buster Posey won in 2016) to win in the NL in the last two years after St. Louis Cardinals' Yadier Molina won eight straight at the position. Posey and Molina were again nominated this year.?
"It's as good as it gets for me. I'm a defensive guy and I take a lot of pride in that," Barnhart said. "I am taken aback by it, to be honest with you. ... Buster and Yadi are obviously two of the best guys in baseball."
Maldonado snapped Salvador Perez's four-year winning streak for AL catcher.
The "Best of the Best" honor -- voted on by fans --- will be unveiled Friday, and will be given to one AL winner and one NL winner.
Additionally, Derek Jeter will be recognized with the Rawlings Heart of Gold Award and Reggie Jackson will be honored with its Lifetime Achievement Award. Omar Vizquel and Ivan Rodriguez will also be inducted into the Rawlings Gold Glove Award Hall of Fame.
