2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award® Finalists Announced

A number of players are vying for the designation as the best defender at their respective positions, including 26 former Rawlings Gold Glove Award winners.  The Baltimore Orioles™ lead all teams with six finalists, with first-time finalists Chris Davis and Manny Machado joining Hardy, Wieters, Adam Jones and Nick Markakis.  The Kansas City Royals™ and Los Angeles Dodgers™ follow with five Rawlings Gold Glove Award finalists each.

Tampa Bay’s entire infield – first baseman James Loney, second baseman Ben Zobrist, third baseman Evan Longoria and shortstop Yunel Escobar – earned Rawlings Gold Glove Award finalist status.  Last year, all three Atlanta Braves™ outfielders were nominated for the prestigious defensive honor….

Each manager and up to six (6) coaches on his staff vote from a pool of qualified players in their League, and cannot vote for players on their own team.  For the first time in its 57-year history, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process, as part of its new collaboration with the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).  The SABR Defensive Index comprised of approximately 25 percent of the overall selection total, with the managers and coaches’ vote continuing to carry the majority.
