ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - It wasn’t the five Gold Gloves that the Cardinals brought home after the 2021 season, but St. Louis still had a productive day of hardware as Rawlings announced the 2022 awards on Tuesday.

Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado and utility man Brendan Donovan took home Gold Gloves this year, Rawlings revealed Tuesday. For Arenado, the win marked his 10th consecutive career Gold Glove Award. The 31-year-old has taken home hardware in each of his big-league seasons since his MLB debut in 2013.

Arenado is the first National League player to win a Gold Glove Award in each of his first 10 seasons. With the win, he also tied Mike Schmidt for the second-most Gold Glove Awards by a third baseman in MLB history.

The rookie Donovan beat out teammate Tommy Edman to become the first National League player to win the award as a utility player. Edman lost out to Colorado’s Brendan Rodgers for the award at second base after winning that award last season. The defending Gold Glove winner at first base in the NL, Paul Goldschmidt fell short in his bid for a repeat. Christian Walker of the D-backs won the award.

Starting Tuesday night, fans can vote for Arenado or Donovan to be named the Rawlings Platinum Glove Award winner here. Voting will remain open through 10:59 p.m. CT on Wednesday, Nov. 9.
