Hours before World Series game three begins it was announced that superstar rookie, Jeremy Peña, won a Gold Glove award.

Turns out, Peña is the first rookie shortstop to win the Gold Glove award. JP3 is HIM.

The kid has been everything and more when filling the major gap that Carlos Correa left in the offseason. His bat has come alive in the postseason, but his glove was obviously gold all season long. He’s made so many ridiculous grabs and throws over the course of the season.
Peña played 1165 innings, had 512 chances with an impressive 146 putouts, 347 assists. His Defensive Runs Saved above average was best in the AL at 15 – tied only with Miguel Rojas in MIA in the NL. His range was good for 3rd in MLB.

What an absolute whirlwind of a rookie year for Peña. He has to replace an Astros legend at one of the most important defensive positions in baseball.

He wins the ALCS MVP, and has had one of the most consistent and clutch bats in October. Now, he wins the most prestigious defensive award in all of baseball. Good on you, Jeremy Peña. Everything you touch is gold.
