Will Sox Outfield Claim Three Gold Gloves This Year?

(USAToday Sports)
Brandon Wile of raises a fascinating possibility for the 2017 Red Sox. The team could become the first in MLB history to have three Gold Glove outfielders. All three players—Jackie Bradley, Jr., Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi—have had stellar defensive seasons so far this year. Yesterday, Benintendi logged his fifth OF assist. Betts already has 15 defensive runs saved this year in RF—leading the majors. JBJ has three OF assists and has already yanked back a few HRs. The evidence is clear that the 'Killer B' unit should be in serious contention at all three spots for the gold-plated glove-age.
