Martin, Cano, Teixeira among Gold Glove finalists

Three members of the 2012 Yankees have been nominated as finalists for Rawlings Gold Glove Awards, as voted upon by Major League managers and coaches — Russell Martin, Robinson Cano and Mark Teixeira.

The winners will be announced during the 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Award® Announcement Show on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, at 9pm ET on ESPN2.

Martin is listed among the catchers with the Tigers’ Alex Avila, the White Sox’s A.J. Pierzynski and the Orioles’ Matt Wieters.

Teixeira’s competition is at first base with Adrian Gonzalez, nominated for his time with the Red Sox, and the Royals’ Eric Hosmer.

Cano will contend at second base with Boston’s Dustin Pedroia and the Mariners’ Dustin Ackley.

Here’s the full list of finalists from Rawlings.

Maybe this award is a bit skewed year in and year out, but I still love recognition of defense. This is a pretty sweet collection of all this year’s winners and their actual gloves. http://www.morebaseball.com/blog/2012-rawlings-gold-glove-winners/ I had no idea Cano used a Spalding glove.
