Byron Buxton and Brian Dozier win Gold Gloves

Congratulations to Byron Buxton and Brian Dozier on their 2017 Gold Gloves awards.

Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton and second baseman Brian Dozier have been named recipients of the 2017 American League Rawlings Gold Glove Award at their respective defensive positions. This marks the first time that either player has earned the award.

The only other Twins second baseman to win a Gold Glove was Chuck Knoblauch in 1997 and the last time a Twins outfielder won a Gold Glove was Torii Hunter in 2007. Previous to Buxton and Dozier winning Gold Glove awards this season, you have to go all the way back to 2010 when Joe Mauer won it as a catcher.

You can view all the previous Minnesota Twins Gold Glove winners on our Twins Awards page.
