White Sox left-hander Dallas Keuchel won his fifth American League Gold Glove Award Sunday.
Keuchel is the fourth Sox pitcher to win the award, joining Jake Peavy (2012), Mark Buehrle (2009-11) and Jim Kaat (1974-75). His five Gold Gloves are second-most among active pitchers behind Zack Greinke, who has six. Keuchel won with the Astros in 2014-16 and 2018.
Keuchel, 33, was credited with a career-high 12 defensive runs saved, the most by a pitcher since Mark Buehrle’s 12 with Miami in 2012. He led major league pitchers with 41 assists and limited opponents to two stolen bases in six attempts.
Jose Berrios and Greinke were also nominated among AL pitcher.
Keuchel was 9-9 with a career-high 5.28 ERA this season and was left off the Sox’ playoff roster.
The Cardinals became the first team with five Gold Glove winners — first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, second baseman Tommy Edman, third baseman Nolan Arenado, center fielder Harrison Bader and left fielder Tyler O’Neill. Arenado won his ninth Gold Glove.
