The finalists for National League Gold Glove awards were announced at third base and left field. At third base you have David Wright, Juan Uribe and our hometown favorite Nolan Arenado. Arenado’s main competition will be Juan Uribe, if the vote were solely based on UZR and DRS:
ARENADO: +20.7 UZR | +30 DRS
URIBE: +23 UZR | +15 DRS
WRIGHT: +3.7 UZR | +5 DRS
The oddity of the announcement came with the name of Eric Young, Jr. being named as a finalist. EYj actually has a negative UZR and DRS in 2013. Marte was a +10.1 UZR defender and +20 DRS and CarGo was a +7.1 UZR and +10 DRS man himself.
