Mike Lowell had a fine major-league career - albeit one that probably falls short of the Hall of Fame. One of the best aspects of his career was that we was an excellent defensive third baseman. He only won one Gold Glove in his career (in 2005), but, at least as measured by Player won-lost records, Lowell was consistently one of the best fielders at his position.

The next table shows the top 25 fielding third baseman, as measured by Player won-lost records.

Being one of the top 25 fielders at his position over the past 70+ years is certainly noteworthy - if not quite Hall-of-Fame worthy.
