HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Even though the World Series didn't go the Astros' way, Pitcher Zack Greinke received a big honor Sunday night.

Rawlings Sporting Goods Company announced that Greinke has won a National League Rawlings Gold Glove Award.

The announcement was made on ESPN's "Baseball Tonight."

While Greinke is a member of the Astros organization, he officially wins the award as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to a statement released by the Astros.

Greinke was traded by Arizona to Houston in July 2019.

The Rawlings Gold Glove Award was created in 1957 and serves as the highest symbol of defensive excellence in Major League Baseball, according to a statement.
