R.A. Dickey earned an American League Gold Glove on Tuesday to become the first Toronto Blue Jays pitcher to win the award.

Dickey had a 14-13 record with a 4.21 earned-run average and 177 strikeouts in his first season in Toronto.

He had only two errors in his 224.2 innings of play, qualifying him for the award as best fielder at his position for the first time in his career.
