Teixeira, Cano & Gardner finalists for Gold Glove Award
By Delia E.
Tomorrow night, the Golden Glove Awards show goes primetime on ESPN 2 and they had announced the finalists for each spot in the Golden Glove awards! The Yankees this year have 3 finalists for the award and all three were nominated last year.
Adrian Gonzalez, Boston Red Sox
Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees
Casey Kotchman, Tampa Bay Rays
Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox
Robinson Cano, New York Yankees
Ian Kinsler, Texas Rangers
Alex Gordon, Royals
Brett Gardner, New York Yankees
Sam Fuld, Tampa Bay Rays
While Russell Martin had a good year behind the plate, he wasn’t nominated for one. Derek Jeter also wasn’t nominated this year for the award and has received more criticism than praise for winning the honor during years when he didn’t deserve the award. Also to give a heads up, former Yankee Austin Jackson was nominated for the Gold Glove in CF. The 1 hour awards show will air at 10:00pm ET only on ESPN 2.
