Rays 3B Evan Longoria won the AL Gold Glove.

Longoria beat out Baltimore's Manny Machado and Cleveland's Jose Ramirez for the award, decided by a combination of voting by league coaches and managers and a sabermetric component.

It was the third Gold Glove for Longoria, previously in 2009-10.

Rays RHP Alex Cobb was also a finalist, but lost to Toronto RHP Marcus Stroman.
