5. Nico Hoerner wins a gold glove at 2B

Nico Hoerner is fantastic on defense, and he has already proved that while playing second base and shortstop. He was already a gold glove finalist at 2B in 2020, and many believe he should have been considered after his stellar season at shortstop last year. Hoerner's new double-play partner Dansby Swanson took home the defensive prize at shortstop last year, so in any case, the Cubs should be in fantastic shape with their middle infield.
