The White Sox's Jake Peavy and Rays' Jeremy Hellickson split the AL Gold Glove award for pitchers. Peavy becomes the third White Sox pitcher to take home the award, along with Mark Buehrle and Jim Kaat. Buehrle, now with the Marlins, won the NL Gold Glove for pitchers.
Peavy pitched 219 innings in 2012 and only committed one error. He also had 22 assists and 14 putouts. It was the first time since 2007 that he broke the 200 inning mark, as a series of injuries has seriously limited his appearances. He posted a record of 11-12 but a 3.37 ERA and 1.09 WHIP, which was the lowest it's been since he won the NL Cy Young award with the Padres in 2007. Peavy averaged eight strikeouts and only two walks per nine innings.
A.J. Pierzynski was a finalist for the award for catchers, but he lost out to the Orioles' Matt Wieters.
