He ties D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt for the most in franchise history with three.

Jackie Bradley Jr. took home his first Gold Glove Award, Ian Kinsler won his second, and Mookie Betts won his third straight while two other Red Sox players (Mitch Moreland and Andrew Benintendi) fell just short. He is the first AL pitcher to win four Gold Gloves in a five-year span since Kenny Rogers won four of five from 2002-06.

Unfortunately for Smoak and the Jays, though, Oakland's Matt Olson, who was spectacular almost all season long, was given the award, also edging out Mitch Moreland of the Boston Red Sox, who himself won a Gold Glove Award in 2016. It was the fourth tie in the history of the award. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process as part of its new collaboration with the SABR.
