Baseball’s Gold Glove Awards are going prime time. Tomorrow night, ESPN2 will televise the first ever Rawlings Gold Glove Awards Show to announce each league’s top defensive player at each position.

Leading into the show, three finalists have been announced for each position. Tomorrow’s one-hour awards show begins at 10 p.m. ET.

The Yankees have three finalists.

First base
Adrian Gonzalez, Red Sox
Casey Kotchman, Rays
Mark Teixeira, Yankees

Second base
Dustin Pedroia, Red Sox
Robinson Cano, Yankees
Ian Kinsler, Rangers

Left field
Alex Gordon, Royals
Brett Gardner, Yankees
Sam Fuld, Rays

Russell Martin had a nice year behind the plate, but he’s not in the mix. Neither is Derek Jeter, who’s taken more heat than praise for his previous Gold Gloves. It’s worth noting that former Yankees prospect Austin Jackson is a finalist in center field.
