Last night, the 2021 Rawlings Gold Glove winners were announced.
There were some familiar names on the list, and some new ones. For the ninth consecutive year, a Rockies third baseman was on the short list for the National League award. For the ninth consecutive year, Nolan Arenado was also a finalist. But for the first time in nine years, those weren’t the same person. Along with Arenado, the new Rockies third baseman Ryan McMahon was announced as a finalist for the award.
Rawlings first awarded the Gold Glove Award to one player at every position in the MLB in 1957.
