Rangers' Beltre finalist for Gold Glove

BY foxsports • October 23, 2014

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre has been tabbed as a finalist for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award.

Beltre, who is a four time Gold Glover, is up against Oakland's Josh Donaldson and Seattle's Kyle Seager for the award. The winner will be announced Nov. 4.

Voting for the award is based on managers and coaches (75 percent) and statistical data (25 percent).

Beltre has won the award twice with the Rangers, with those coming in 2011 and 2012. Beltre ranked in the top five in the AL in fielding percentage, range factor and total zone runs. 

Neither Donaldson nor Seager has ever won the award.

Beltre was also tabbed the American League All-Star third baseman by the Sporting News, beating out Donaldson and Seager for the honor. The winner is selected by a panel of AL general managers and assistant general managers.
