Andrus Nominated For Gold Glove Award

And yet when it came time to reveal the Rawlings Gold Glove finalists on Thursday afternoon, Bradley's name wasn't even on the list. Ramirez played 88 games at third, before switching to second to cover for the injured Jason Kipnis.

Several finalists are in the running for their first Gold Glove Award, and two positions from the AL will yield a first-time victor. And among the 18 shortstops that played at least 1,000 innings, no one made fewer errors than Galvis, who made seven in 155 starts.

Gardner won his first Gold Glove last season and is a finalist for the fourth time in his career (2011, 2015-17).

"I felt that Tucker was the best at the defensive position in all of the National League", said Votto. They also finished 11th in putouts with 4334 out of 5789. He ranked third-to-last among AL center fielders. The public can weigh in as to who is the "Finest in the Field" in both leagues, selecting one player from each league's Gold Glove Award winners.

Among 14 Major League Baseball center fielders who played in at least 1,000 innings, only two (Miami's Christian Yelich and Toronto's Kevin Pillar) made fewer errors than Herrera (two in 1,144 innings/128 games started).

Surprisingly, Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist was also nominated for a Gold Glove, and he will battle Colorado Rockies (and former Cubs) infielder DJ LeMahieu and Miami Marlins star Dee Gordon for that prize. As of August 27, the last time SABR updated its defensive index ratings, Bradley's negative-1.4 mark indicated that he allowed an extra 1.4 runs to score than an average center fielder would.

The Phillies have not had a Gold Glove victor since 2012 when shortstop Jimmy Rollins captured the fourth of his career.
