McCutchen Named Finalist for Gold Glove

Rawlings Sporting Good Company announced their 2012 Gold Glove Award Finalists today, and Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen was named one of the three finalists for center field in the National League.

McCutchen was the only Pittsburgh player to be named a finalist this season. He was a finalist in center field along with Cincinnati’s Drew Stubbs and Atlanta’s Michael Bourn. McCutchen finished the 2012 season with a .997 fielding percentage, committing just one error. Stubbs posted a .982 mark with five errors, Bourn, .995 with two errors.

The Rawlings Gold Glove Award honors the best individual fielding performances at each position in the American League and National League, as voted by major-league managers and coaches.

Each manager and up to six coaches on his staff vote from a pool of qualified players in their League. They cannot vote for players on their own team. ESPN2 will air the 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Announcement Show on Tuesday, October 30, 2012, at 9pm ET.

The Pirates Have Spent Big in the Draft, But Has it Paid Off?

    Hmm, what a horrific snub of Clint Barmes. How dare they not respect his UZR rating…

    • https://profiles.google.com/116255365477483987850 jalcorn

      You are a fool if you couldn’t see Barmes was very good at SS defensively this year. His DRS was just as good as UZR and by the eye his range was tremendous.

    I agree that Barmes looks good in the field. He doesn’t waste a lot of movement and is very smooth. I wish his errors were not so plentiful, but he is a fine defensive shortstop.
