MLB released its finalists for the Gold Glove award, and Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. was omitted.
On Thursday, Major League Baseball released the finalists for the Gold Glove at the shortstop position in the National League. Javier Baez, Miguel Rojas, Dansby Swanson. Had this been 2019, I would have no issues with the list.
But the league has apparently overlooked the strides Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. made in the field in year two. The 21-year-old remained healthy all year long and while the center of attention was on his eye-popping production at the plate, his improvements in the field cannot be measured.
