By Steve Silva, Boston.com Staff

Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis today became one of five first-time Gold Glove winners in the American League.

The gritty Red Sox first baseman did not make an error in 1,080 total chances and recorded 990 putouts for the Sox.

Youkilis joins Tigers 2B Placido Polanco, Angels SS Orlando Cabrera, and Mariners 3B Adrian Beltre as AL infielders who are receiving the Gold Glove honor for the first time.

Tigers catcher Ivan Rodriguez, Mariners center fielder Ichiro Suzuki, Twins outfielder Torii Hunter, Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore, and Twins pitcher Johan Santana round out the 2007 AL Gold Glove winners.
