Gomez is Golden

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has been selected the winner of the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award in the National League at his position. Gomez was joined as a finalist by Andrew McCutchen (Pirates) and Denard Span (Nationals). The announcement was made on ESPN2.

Gomez recorded a career-high 12 assists this season, which trailed only the Mets’ Juan Lagares (14) for the Major League lead among center fielders. He also made five home run-saving catches and did not commit an error over his last 32 games.

Gomez won the 10th Gold Glove Award in franchise history and became the fifth different Brewer to earn the honor, joining George Scott (first base: 1972-76), Cecil Cooper (first base: 1979-80), Sixto Lezcano (outfield: 1979) and Robin Yount (shortstop: 1982). The Brewers had gone 30 seasons without a Gold Glove Award winner, which was the longest streak in the 57-year history of the award.

Fans can only select one player among the 2013 winners from each league. A combination of the international fan vote and the SABR Defensive Index will determine who takes home the honor of each league’s top defensive player. Voting concludes on Monday, November 4 at 11am CT.

The Rawlings Platinum Glove Award winners will be unveiled during the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Ceremony presented by Gold Sport Collectibles on Friday, November 8, 2013, at The Plaza Hotel in New York City.
