Simmons wins second straight Gold Glove

MLB’s 2014 postseason awards started in full swing with the presentation of the Gold Gloves. The Braves were represented on the GG squad, by a repeat winner.

SS Andrelton Simmons (Lynchburg, 2011) won his second straight Gold Glove by turning in another solid season defensively. He did make 14 errors, the same as a season ago, but posted a still solid .978 Fielding Percentage, and he led all NL SS with 99 Double Plays turned, as well as a 3.9 Wins Above Replacement on defense.

This was the second straight Gold Glove for Simmons, who played 131 games for Lynchburg in 2011 when coming up in the Braves system.
