Giménez the first second baseman to earn Platinum Glove Award

Unveiled in 2011, the Platinum Glove Awards are still relatively new and are decided by the fans, who vote for each of the league’s top defensive players among that season’s Gold Glove Award winners. This year’s results ended Nolan Arenado’s run of six consecutive NL awards, while the AL has seen a different winner in each of the past five years.
