Dustin Pedroia Wins Gold Glove

Dustin Pedroia told WEEI.com’s Rob Bradford that he will be the recipient of the American League Gold Glove Award at second base. The award winners will be formally announced at around 4 p.m. Thursday, but Pedroia was kind enough to share the news early.

It’s Pedroia’s first gold glove, and the third for a Red Sox player in the last four seasons. Kevin Youkilis (who missed out on a Gold Glove this year to Carlos Pena) won the award last year at first base, and catcher Jason Varitek won the award in 2005.

“I take pride in my defense, it’s a huge part of my game,” Pedroia told Bradford. “In fact, my biggest [priority] is defense . . . I took extra ground balls every single day and it definitely paid off.”
