ST. LOUIS -- Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki won his 10th straight Gold Glove on Tuesday, as the American League winners were announced.

Suzuki has won the award each year he has played since coming over to the majors from Japan in 2001. Only Roberto Clemente and Willie Mays (12 each) have won more Gold Gloves for outfield play than Suzuki. Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones and Al Kaline also won 10 during their respective careers.

Joining Suzuki in the outfield were teammate Franklin Gutierrez and Tampa Bay's Carl Crawford -- both first time winners.

A trio of New York Yankees highlighted the infield winners, as first baseman Mark Teixeira and shortstop Derek Jeter picked up their fourth and fifth awards, respectively, while second baseman Robinson Cano earned his first defensive honor. Tampa third baseman Evan Longoria also picked up his second award in as many years.

Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer won his third straight Gold Glove, while Chicago starting pitcher Mark Buehrle captured his second in a row.

The awards are voted on by managers and coaches. The voters may not select players on their own teams, and can vote only for players in their own league.

The National League winners will be announced on Wednesday.
