Four Brewers players named finalists for Gold Glove awards
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Four Brewers players have been named finalists for Gold Glove awards.
Centerfielder Lorenzo Cain and left fielder Christian Yelich were nominated for their outfield plays. Catcher Manny Piña, who was regarded for his ability to throw out stealing players, has been nominated. Travis Shaw rounds out the nominations for his play at third base, even though he played a lot of second base towards the end of the season.
In center field Cain is up against Billy Hamilton of the Reds and Ender Inciarte of the Braves. Yelich is up against the Pirates Corey Dickerson and the Braves Adam Duvall in left field. Shaw will compete against the Rockies Nolan Arenado and Nationals Anthony Rendon for honors and third base and Piña is a finalist with the Cardinals Yadier Molina and the Giants Buster Posey.
Yelich won a Gold Glove in 2014 with the Marlins. The last time a Brewers player won a Gold Glove was in 2013 when Carlos Gómez won for his outfield play.
The winners of the Gold Glove will be announced on Sunday, November 4 at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
