Arenado is the seventh third baseman in Major League Baseball history to win at least six Gold Gloves, the third NL third baseman to accomplish the feat (Scott Rolen, Mike Schmidt).

With the win, Greinke ties Ron Guidry, Phil Niekro and Kenny Rogers for seventh all-time among pitchers to win the award.

For D-backs shortstop Nick Ahmed, it's his first career Gold Glove. "We play a lot of games throughout the season, and winning awards isn't what you strive for; the most important part to me is working to help my team win".
