Yankees OF Joey Gallo was among the 2021 Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners announced Sunday, taking the award for right field in the American League.

Gallo edged the Hunter Renfroe of the Boston Red Sox and the Houston AstrosKyle Tucker. He earned his second straight honor, after winning in 2020 as a Texas Ranger.

The voting process involves managers and six coaches from each MLB franchise, amounting to seven votes apiece for all 30 teams. Managers and coaches are unable to pick their own players, and can only vote for those in the league — American or National — they compete in.

Gallo is the Yankees’ first Gold Glove Award winner since 2016, when Brett Gardner got the AL LF nod. After coming to the Yankees in a July 29 trade, Gallo tallied nine assists in right field and 14 total on the season.

He typically played left field for the Yanks, with Aaron Judge in right, but most of his 2021 defensive innings — from New York to Texas — were in right field (764.2). Gallo tied Judge and Tucker atop the AL with 11 defensive runs saved.

In 92 games in right field with the Rangers (83) and Yankees (nine), Gallo posted 192 putouts, nine assists, three double plays, and four errors. Altogether, Gallo had a .980 fielding percentage.
