Jason Heyward is up for a Gold Glove - and received another defensive honor due to his above-average glove work.

Late last week, MLB announced the finalists for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award, and two St. Louis Cardinals are up for the honor.
Right fielder Jason Heyward, one of the league’s most gifted defensive outfielders, and catcher Yadier Molina were announced as being in the running. This is no surprise given their respective pedigrees, as Molina has won a Gold Glove every season since 2008. Heyward, meanwhile, picked up Gold Gloves in 2012 and 2014 when he was a member of the Atlanta Braves.
Congratulations to Yadier Molina (C) and Jason Heyward (RF), voted in as finalists at their positions for the @RawlingsSports#GoldGlove.
Molina was nominated alongside Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants and Wilson Ramos of the Washington Nationals, while Heyward will have to beat Curtis Granderson of the New York Mets and Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals to take home another GG for his collection.
