Sox Have 5 Gold Glove Finalists: Betts, Benintendi, Bradley, Kinsler, Moreland

The Red Sox have snared five finalist spots in the 2018 Rawlings Gold Glove competitions. Boston finalists are: Mookie Betts in right-field; Andrew Benintendi in left-field; Jackie Bradley, Jr. in center-field; Ian Kinsler at second base; Mitch Moreland at first base. The Red Sox lead all other teams with the final finalists. The winners at each position will be announced in early November. Winners are decided on a vote by managers and coaches, but voters are not allowed to pick their own players. Rawlings has also introduced a statistical aspect to the process in recent years.
