Pitcher Adam Wainwright of the St. Louis Cardinals has been named the National League’s Golden Glove recipient for the pitcher position. The Golden Glove is given out to one player of each position per conference, based on individual fielding performances. He joins R.A Dickey as the two pitchers who won this year’s award.

From fellow FanSider David Miniel, on Wainwright’s chances of winning the award in the days prior to tonight’s official announcement,

Wainwright made 34 starts this season and worked 241 2/3 innings with a 19-9 record and 2.94 ERA. Numbers that could definitely put him up for a CY Young award. But right now we’re focused on this Gold Glove. Defensively Wainwright looks like this, perfect across the board. He’s posted a 1.000 fielding percentage with 25 put outs, 36 assists, no errors and six double plays. Some great numbers were put up by this 32 year old veteran right hander.

This is Wainwright’s second Gold Glove award, he also won it back in 2009.

Wainwright and the Cardinals are currently down 3-2 in games of the World Series, and will have to win Game 6 to force a deciding game 7.
