The right side of the Yankees’ infield is officially golden again this year, as Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano have been named as recipients of Rawlings Gold Glove Awards at their respective positions.
It is the fifth Gold Glove Award for Teixeira at first base, and Cano’s second at second base.This marks the third time in the last four seasons that the Yankees have had at least two Gold Glove winners in the same year. Derek Jeter and Teixeira also won in 2009, while Cano, Jeter and Teixeira all won in 2010.
Here are the winners:
2012 GOLD GLOVE WINNERS
POS AL winner NL winner
C Matt Wieters, BAL Yadier Molina, STL
1B Mark Teixeira, NYY Adam LaRoche, WAS
2B Robinson Cano, NYY Darwin Barney, CHC
SS J.J. Hardy, BAL Jimmy Rollins, PHI
3B Adrian Beltre, TEX Chase Headley, SD
LF Alex Gordon, KC Carlos Gonzalez, COL
CF Adam Jones, BAL Andrew McCutchen, PIT
RF Josh Reddick, OAK Jason Heyward, ATL
P Jeremy Hellickson, TB
Jake Peavy, CWS Mark Buehrle, MIA
Mike Trout is the most notable omission, I’d imagine. Plus, I dunno if I ever really thought of JJ Hardy as a defensive player.
Congrats to Cano and Teix!
