Greinke is the sixth NL pitcher to win three NL Gold Gloves in a row, joining Harvey Haddix, Bobby Shantz, Bob Gibson, Phil Niekro and Greg Maddux.

The award caps an otherwise disappointing year for Greinke, who was signed last December to a six-year, $206.5 million free-agent deal. In 26 starts for the D-backs, Greinke was 13-7 with a 4.37 ERA, and he was hampered by a pair of injuries.
"As a whole, it didn't go as planned, for the team and myself for the most part," Greinke said near the end of the season. "Just a couple of injuries earlier and not getting off on a good foot. I thought we were going to do a lot better than we did."
Greinke, who becomes the first D-backs pitcher to win a Gold Glove Award, tied with Dallas Keuchel and Masahiro Tanaka for second among all pitchers with seven defensive runs saved.
