Three Gold Glove finalists
Rawlings announced Thursday that three Reds — 2B Brandon Phillips, 3B Todd Frazier and CF Billy Hamilton — were National League Gold Glove finalists. The winners will be announced on Nov. 10.
Phillips is a four-time Gold Glove winner (2008, 2010, 2011, 2013). The other finalists at second base this year are Dee Gordon from the Marlins and DJ LeMahieu of the Rockies. LeMahieu won the award in 2014, when Phillips was also a finalist.
Hamilton was a finalist in 2014. This year — he’s up against the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen and A.J. Pollock of the D-backs.
Frazier, a first-time finalist, is joined by Nolan Arenado of the Rockies and Matt Duffy of the Giants.
Voting was completed near the end of the regular season by Major League managers and coaches. That and calculations from the SABR Defensive Index are used to determine the winners.
