… on Tuesday, Buehrle officially captured an award he had coveted since becoming a member of the South Siders’ rotation in 2001. Buehrle took home an American League Rawlings Gold Glove, joining Jim Kaat as the only pitcher in team history to earn the honor recognizing exceptional defense.

Buehrle’s Gold Glove is the first won by a White Sox player since third baseman Robin Ventura in 1998. Always considered one of the best fielding pitchers in the AL, Buehrle was blocked by previous winners Kenny Rogers (five times), Mike Mussina (three times) and Johan Santana during his past nine years.

None of those three currently resides in the American League, with Buehrle’s .982 fielding percentage (one error, 41 assists) in 2009 putting him into this illustrious list.
