Adrian Beltre of the Texas Rangers was named the American League Gold Glove third baseman for the second consecutive year on Tuesday night.

Beltre beat out Kansas City's Mike Moustakas and Oakland's Brandon Inge in voting conducted among AL managers and coaches. The voters could not list a player from their club.

Beltre had only eight errors and led AL third basemen in fielding percentage at .974. He played through severe abdominal pain caused by scar tissue for much of the season.

"It's nice to be recognized for what you've done for your team," Beltre said on a conference call. "No doubt this one was tougher because of the physical challenge. I probably didn't play in the field as much as I wanted to."

Beltre said the abdominal condition has eased with rest, and he does not expect to undergo off-season surgery.

"I don't think health will be a problem with my stomach," Beltre said. "If there is, I hope it's just a little bit, not like what I had. I've been feeling good. I hope I don't have that again."

This is Beltre's fourth AL Gold Glove since 2007. He is tied for 10th place on the all-tine list of Gold Glove winners at third base.

"I don't know if there was anyone even close (to Beltre)," ESPN analyst John Kruk said during the awards-show telecast.

Beltre will receive a $100,000 incentive payment for winning the award.

The Rangers other finalists were bypassed. David Murphy finished behind Kansas City's Alex Gordon in left field, and Elvis Andrus lost out to Baltimore's J.J. Hardy at shortstop.
