Seattle right fielder Ichiro Suzuki won his 10th consecutive Gold Glove on Tuesday, headlining an American League group that included three members of the New York Yankees but no Red Sox players.
Derek Jeter captured his fifth straight Gold Glove at shortstop, Mark Teixeira won his second straight at first base (fourth overall) and second baseman Robinson Cano was named a winner for the first time.
Other winners included the Twins Joe Mauer at catcher, Tampa Bay third baseman Evan Longoira, White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle, Tampa Bay left fielder Carl Crawford and Seattle center fielder Franklin Gutierrez.

According to a tweet from Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, the Red Sox are one of several teams that are "suitors" for free-agent pitcher Cliff Lee.
Heyman writes that the "Yankees remain the obvious favorite" for the left-hander, but lists the Red Sox as a potential landing spot along with the Angels, Dodgers, Phillies, Cubs and Astros.
WEEI.com reported last month that the Sox planned to perform "due diligence" in exploring the market for Lee. Still, after the deals committing roughly $150 million to John Lackey and Josh Beckett in the last calendar year, it seems unlikely that the Sox would channel their offseason resources into the left-hander.
League sources have told WEEI.com that the Patriots have signed long snapper Matt Katula to a two-year contract.
The 28-year-old Katula has played his entire career with the Baltimore Ravens. He was released by the Ravens in August after five years in Baltimore.
It has also been confirmed that Jake Ingram has been released. Ingram has struggled mightily in 2010, with two poor snaps vs. the Chargers and another last Sunday at Cleveland. Bill Belichick was asked earlier in the week about Ingram's problems against the Browns.
“Well, I think this is one of those games where we can probably list every player that was active and talk about some type of inconsistencies – (even) coaches for that matter," said Belichick. "It wasn’t one of our better performances by a long shot. We all had a hand in it, so I think you can say that about everybody – there [are] some plays that...
According to a baseball source, the Red Sox contact Justin Duchscherer to express interest in the 32-year-old right-hander. The one-time Sox minor leaguer (he was dealt to the Rangers in 2001 in exchange for Doug Mirabelli), Duchscherer was 2-1 with a 2.89 ERA in five starts last year before undergoing season-ending hip surgery. He had missed all of the 2009 season while recovering from elbow surgery and being treated for depression.
But Duchscherer, a two-time All-Star, has been effective when healthy, and he has worked with new Sox pitching coach Curt Young for the last eight seasons, first in Triple-A Sacramento, and then after Young became the A's pitching coach.

ESPN analyst Keyshawn Johnson joined Dale & Holley to give his take on the AFC and his thoughts on Randy Moss. Johnson believes that the positives far outweigh the negatives with Moss, as long as a team is prepared to live with what he can do and what he won't do.
"If you know what you're getting with Randy Moss, you're happy, you're OK," Johnson said. "Here's a guy that's not going to block, he's not going to run crisp routes, he's not going to do certain things. He's going to say what's on his mind and if you're OK with that, you can win with that. If you know how to coach that. If you don't know how to coach that like Brad Childress in Minnesota, you can't win with it."
Johnson feels that Moss recognized right away that he would have a problem with Childress. "You just left the greatest coach in the modern era to something different," Johnson said. "He recognized that. Moss...
