While 3B Evan Longoria, 1B Casey Kotchman and LF Sam Fuld were all among the top-three finalists for best defensive player at their respective positions, none claimed the main prize when they were announced Tuesday night on ESPN2's award show.

Longoria, who had won back-to-back AL Gold Gloves at third base, was unseated by Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre. Kotchman, who led all major league first baseman this year with a .998 fielding percentage, was topped by Red Sox 1B Adrian Gonzalez. The Royals' Alex Gordon took the AL leftfield award.
