His streak of six consecutive Gold Gloves to begin his career is the second-longest streak in Major League history, trailing Ichiro Suzuki's streak of 10-straight Gold Gloves to begin his Major League career. LeMahieu, who has two Gold Glove to his credit (2014, 2017), made four errors in 128 games. Markakis won for the first time in the NL and third time overall, ending Jason Heyward's run of four in a row. A little more than eight months later, he is the National League's Gold Glove left fielder.

He produced an.877 OPS during the first half of the season but just a.701 in the second half. It was a similar situation at catcher in the AL, with Salvador Perez winning for Kansas City for the fifth time after he was unseated by Martin Maldonado previous year.
