Toronto Blue Jays R.A. Dickey throws to first base to try and pick off Tampa Bay Rays Matt Joyce during third inning AL baseball action in Toronto.
Dickey had a 14-13 record with a 4.21 earned-run average and 177 strikeouts in his first season in Toronto.
He had only two errors in his 224.2 innings of play, qualifying him for the award as best fielder at his position for the first time in his career.
The 39-year-old knuckleballer is the ninth Blue Jay to win a Gold Glove and the first since outfielder Vernon Wells in 2006.
