|Gonzalez and Arenado brought home Gold Gloves on Tuesday.|
Gonzalez, though hampered again by nagging injuries that forced him to miss a large chunk of the second half of the 2013 season, was an easy pick for the award. CarGo consistently makes extremely difficult plays look very easy. Runners trying to take the extra base got a not-so-subtle reminder that Gonzalez can accurately put the ball on the glove of any defender standing at any base.
Going into the season, Gonzalez was a strong favorite for the award. He is largely regarded as one of the best outfielders in the game. He has center field speed, a right field arm all packed into a left field position. That nearly ensures him as one of the finalists for the award every season.
