Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on November 05, 2014

Salvador Perez won for the second year the Golden Glove award for best catcher in the American League for his work behind the plate with the Kansas City Royals. Perez left a .992 fielding percentage in 2014. In 146 games as receptor just committed 9 errors, participated on 5 double plays and had 72 outs. The Venezuelan saved his team from rivals that made eight runs, the maximum amount for a receiver. He also surprised at the bases four runners which was co-leader in the majors in that department with Wellington Castillo.

Perez and Bob Boone (1989) are the only masks the Royals to win the award.

In the American League were also nominated for the award in their respective positions Miguel Cabrera, Alcides Escobar and Felix Hernandez. However, all four were defeated by Eric Hosmer, JJ Hardy and Dallas Keuchel.

In the National League, Pablo Sandoval lost to third base for the Rockies of Colorado, Nolan Arenado. While Jason Heyward was imposed on Gerardo Parra in right field.
