Gold Glove Finalists Include Cleveland Indians' Asdrubal Cabrera And Fausto Carmona

The Gold Glove Finalists were announced on Monday night prior to the actual awards being handed out on an ESPN broadcast Tuesday night. Of note, two Cleveland Indians players are up for the awards as both Asdrubal Cabrera and Fausto Carmona are among the best fielders at their position.

Carmona is one of three pitchers, along with Mark Buehrle of the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Angels' Dan Haren, to be recognized for his glove by the voting committee. Joining Cabrera at shortstop are J.J. Hardy of the Baltimore Orioles and the Angels' Erick Aybar.

SB Nation's Rob Neyer is not exactly excited about Cabrera's chances at actually winning the Gold Glove.

Hmmm. Not a great year for shortstops, apparently. But it's something of a crime that Asdrubal Cabera's here instead of (for example) Alcides Escobar, who had a great year at shortstop for the Royals.

[...]

I'm now suspecting that Rawlings used defensive metrics to choose the finalists ... except then how do you explain Asdrubal Cabrera, whose numbers this season at shortstop were as lousy as ever.

The results will be announced Tuesday night on ESPN2 at 10 p.m. ET.
