Two Phillies — Shane Victorino and Jimmy Rollins — secured defensive honors this year as Gold Glove recipients. The nod is the first for the former and the second for the latter, who won his first last year during his NL MVP season.
Victorino moved into center this year, after Aaron Rowand was traded to the Giants. Rowand won a Gold Glove in 2007, playing center field for Philly.
Trend? Let’s hope.
