First baseman Eric Hosmer and left fielder Alex Gordon were announced as Rawlings Gold Glove winners Tuesday night on ESPN. The Platinum Glove will be awarded November 10, during the 2017 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Ceremony.

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.

Perez had won four straight AL Gold Glove Awards from 2013-16 before being beat out this season by the Angels' Martin Maldonado.

Canada's Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds was up for the award among NL first basemen but lost out to Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt, who won his third career Gold Glove. Only Frank White has won more Gold Gloves in franchise history.

However, the Broncos have seen enough of Osweiler to know what he is and are likely just hoping he will cut down on turnovers. The Broncos will look to snap their three-game skid when they visit the Eagles at 1 p.m.

Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler missed out on a Gold Glove for his defensive work this past season. Since that time, Heyward leads all of Major League Baseball with 138 defensive runs saved in the outfield.

Gordon tied for 11th among American League outfielders with eight assists this season, his highest total since also collecting eight in 2014, the last time he was awarded a Rawlings Gold Glove. He had a streak of 120 games (1,013 chances) without being charged with an error, the longest streak by a Royals first baseman, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Managers and up to six coaches from each team participated in the voting, with the stipulation that they couldn't vote for players from their own team.
