Zack Cozart, Billy Hamilton and Brandon Phillips were among the three finalists for Gold Glove awards at their respective positions, announced by Rawlings today. That’s strong defense up the middle.
Phillips has won four GG before. Neither Cozart or Hamilton has won previously.
Gold Glove voting consists of two components: 75 percent from managers and coaches and 25 percent from statistical data. The winners will be announced Tuesday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. ET.
Future Reds Yeonis Cespedes, Christian Yelich, Nick Markakis, Jason Heyward and Alex Gordon (oh, and Giancarlo Stanton) were also finalists.
Dare to dream.
