HOUSTON – For the fourth time in the last five seasons, left-handed pitcher Dallas Keuchel has won a Gold Glove Award, according to the Houston Astros.
Rawlings Sporting Goods Company Inc. made the announcement Sunday night.
Keuchel, who is now a free agent, was named the top defensive pitcher for three consecutive seasons from 2014 to 2016.
He said he was honored to have won the award and proud of the hard work he's given this season.
"Proud of the 27/7/365 work I've put in to field my position and give my all on the diamond. The athleticism it takes to be a champ is #EarnedNotGiven," Keuchel posted on Twitter.
