The Rawlings Gold Glove winners were announced tonight and two Cubs, first baseman Anthony Rizzo and right fielder Jason Heyward, have been honored with the award. It is the first win for Rizzo and fourth for Heyward.

These are the first Gold Gloves won by a Cubs player since Darwin Barney won in 2012. It’s the first time two Cubs have won in the same year since Derrek Lee and Greg Maddux both won in 2005.

Addison Russell was one of the three finalists for the shortstop award won by the Giants Brandon Crawford. Jake Arrieta was a finalist for the pitcher award won by the Diamondbacks Zack Greinke.
