The 2010 Gold Gloves were announced just moments ago and two Seattle Mariners' outfielders made the cut. Ichiro Suzuki and Franklin Gutierrez both brought home the hardware for the Mariners, as announced by Major League Baseball. Former Seattle PI, and current MLB.com, reporter Greg Johns broke the news on Twitter.
Mariners' Ichiro Suzuki wins 10th straight Gold Glove and Franklin Gutierrez won his first today, as just announced.
The award is Ichiro's tenth straight, spanning every year he's played in America. The ageless right fielder continues to be a steady presence in the Mariners' outfield, starting 160 of the 162 games this year. Ichiro recorded seven outfield assists, four erros and a .989 fielding percentage in 2010.
Gutierrez won his first Gold Glove in 2010 after being snubbed last year. He amassed a perfect field percentage in center field this year, dazzling crowds with his range and acrobatic catches. Gutierrez recorded two outfield assists and countless highlight-reel catches in 145 games this season.
For the Mariners, it's the 10th time two players have been awarded Gold Gloves in the same year.
