| No Comments | No TrackBacks

On the same day he agreed to terms on a two-year, $29 million contract extension, White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy won his first American League Gold Glove Award.

Peavy, who made one error in 37 chances in 2012, shared the honor with Tampa Bay's Jeremy Hellickson. Peavy held opponents to a 52.9 percent (9-for-17) success rate on stolen bases. He is the third Sox pitcher to win the award, joining left-handers Jim Kaat (1974-75) and Mark Buehrle (2009-11).

Catcher A.J. Pierzynski was also nominated for a Gold Glove.
