Arenado earned his fourth consecutive Gold Glove on Tuesday night, earning the award over Washington’s Anthony Rendon and Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. With the win, the 25-year-old became the first third baseman since Oakland’s Eric Chavez to earn the award four or more times. Chavez captured six between 2001 and 2006.
The news, however, wasn’t so good for fellow Rockies DJ LeMahieu and Carlos Gonzalez, who were also in the running for Gold Gloves at second base and right field, respectively. LeMahieu was bested by San Francisco’s Joe Panik while Jason Heyward of the Chicago Cubs earned his fourth Gold Glove by topping CarGo.
It may have gone a bit under the radar, but former Colorado reliever Justin Miller has signed a free agent deal with the Los Angeles Angels.
In his two seasons in Colorado, the right-hander posted a 4-4 record and 4.97 ERA in 74 games. He was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque by the Rockies on October 12 and elected free agency the next day.
