For the second straight year, Brett Gardner has won the 2011 Fielding Bible Award as the game’s best defensive left fielder. He received nine of ten first place votes and one second place vote (behind Carlos Gonzalez). His points total (99) was the highest by any player at any position. Tony Gwynn Jr. was a distant second with 74 points. It doesn’t directly factor into the voting, but Gardner had the highest UZR (+25.2) and DRS (+22) in baseball last season, regardless of position.
Mark Teixeira (fourth), Robinson Cano (seventh), Alex Rodriguez (eighth), Russell Martin (fifth), and Hiroki Kuroda (sixth) all received votes at their respective positions.
