CLEVELAND -- Michael Brantley earned a trip to his first All-Star Game this past season and turned in the kind of campaign worthy of consideration for the American League's Most Valuable Player honor. The Indians outfielder is now in the mix for a Rawlings AL Gold Glove Award.
On Thursday, Rawlings unveiled the finalists for the 2014 Awards, which will be revealed at 7 p.m. ET on Nov. 4 on ESPN2. Brantley and Cleveland catcher Yan Gomes were both among the three finalists from each position in the AL and NL. Gold Glove Award nominations are based 75 percent on voting by AL coaches and managers and 25 percent on defensive metrics.
