Instead of one per league, the Fielding Bible Awards go to the best defensive player at each position in all of MLB.
Simmons set a single-season record this year by accumulating 41 defensive runs saved, a stat that was first tracked by Baseball Info Solutions in 2003. He is expected to also win the National League Gold Glove, which will be presented Tuesday night.
The awards were tallied by a 12-man analyst vote.
