Robinson CanoRobinson Cano is the only Yankees finalist for a Gold Glove. Three finalists at each position were announced today by Rawlings. The entire Tampa Bay infield is nominated, as were two of the three outfielders in Boston, Baltimore, Oakland and Kansas City. The Orioles lead the way with six finalists.

The biggest Yankees snub seems to be center fielder Brett Gardner, but his defensive metrics are not particularly overwhelming. Of course, neither are Adams Jones, who was named as a finalist. Just based on watching, I think I’d put Gardner more or less on par with the three players chosen by Rawlings, but I also fully believe that defensive impact is very difficult to measure.

Here’s the full list of American League Gold Glove finalists.
