MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers’ Carlos Gomez has a chance to become the team’s first Gold Glove winner in three decades.
Gomez has been named one of three National League finalists at the center field position. The announcement was made this morning by Rawlings, which sponsors the awards.
Gomez recorded a career-high 12 assists this season, second among Major League center fielders. According to the Brewers, Gomez also made five home run-saving catches and did not commit an error over his last 32 games.
Voted on by opposing managers and coaches, the Gold Glove awards recognize the best defensive player at each position in each league. Brewers players have won the award nine times in the team’s 44-year history. The last Brewer to win the award was shortstop Robin Yount in 1982. The 31-year drought is the longest current streak in the Major Leagues.
The other National League center fielders to be nominated for the award are Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen and Washington’s Denard Span. Winners will be announced on Tuesday.
