Rawlings announced the Gold Glove finalists on Thursday afternoon and the Pittsburgh Pirates are well-represented. Gerrit Cole, Starling Marte and Andrew McCutchen are all among the three finalists for their position. McCutchen is the only one who has won in the past, taking home the award during the 2012 season. Marte was a finalist last year, losing out to Christian Yelich of the Marlins.
McCutchen is a surprising nomination based on his stats, including a -0.6 dWAR this year and -1.0 in 2014. Marte was one of the best defensive players in the NL for any position and he led all outfielders with 16 assists. Cole handled 47 chances this year without an error.
The winners will be announced November 10th.
