Dustin Pedroia Named Finalist For Gold Glove Award
BOSTON (CBS) — The 2012 season was overall one to forget for the Boston Red Sox, but it may result in some postseason hardware for at least one player.
Dustin Pedroia was named a finalist for the Gold Glove Award at second base, the league announced Monday.
Pedroia, who won the award last season and in 2008, is a finalist along with Robinson Cano and Dustin Ackley. The winner will be announced Tuesday night at 9 p.m.
Interestingly, Adrian Gonzalez is also a finalist for the AL award at first base. He played 123 games for the Red Sox this season before being traded to Los Angeles, where he played in 36 games. He also won the Gold Glove last year, as well as in 2008 and ’09.
