Last night, Major League Baseball announced that Placido Polanco has won his third Rawlings Gold Glove Award, this time as a third baseman. His previous Gold Gloves were won as a second baseman of the Detroit Tigers in 2007 and 2009. With his win, he becomes the second man to win a Gold Glove at multiple positions, joining Darin Erstad.
Polanco, starting in 115 games, committed only eight errors during the season, for a fielding percentage of .977.
Congratulation on winning the honor, Polanco.
