Wilson Defensive Players Of The Year Newsbeat

Thursday, November 07, 2019

2019 Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Award winners announced

On Tuesday, the winners of the 2019 Wilson Defensive Player of the Year Awards were announced on MLB Network. Gold Gloves were handed out on Sunday, but Wilson has their own line of defensive awards. The differences between the two are that the Wilson awards are not as widely hailed and there’s only one winner at each position as opposed to the one from each league (two total) for the Gold Glove. The winners are determined by a formula that takes into account scouting information, basic fielding stats, and more advanced (Sabermetric) stats.

Your winners:

First base: Freddie Freeman, Braves
Second base: Kolten Wong, Cardinals
Shortstop: Andrelton Simmons, Angels
Third base: Matt Chapman, Athletics
Left field: David Peralta, Diamondbacks
Center field: Lorenzo Cain, Brewers
Right field: Aaron Judge, Yankees
Catcher: Roberto Pérez, Indians
Pitcher: Zack Greinke, Astros

So, how do these awards compare on the merits to the Gold Gloves?
