Crawford wins Gold Glove

The remarkable rise of the Giants’ Brandon Crawford as an elite shortstop continued Tuesday, when he was named the National League’s Gold Glove winner at the position.

Thus ends the reign of Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons, who won the Gold Glove the last two seasons and also was named the league’s top overall defender last season. It’s a tribute to the dazzle and range of Crawford, whose fielding percentage (.979) actually was below that of SImmons, who led the NL at .988 and also had a better Wins Above Replacement metric than Crawford.
