Gold Glove Second Basemen Finalists
Kinsler will most likely have a tighter challenge winning the Gold Glove against Robinson Cano and Dustin Pedroia. For years, Pedroia, along with Jose Altuve, have been thorns in Kinsler’s side – always inching him out for the major awards. But, this year, Kinsler was an exception. He earned a 6.1 WAR and his RF/9 was 5.09. Robinson Cano beat out Kinsler for a spot on the All-Star roster this year and he earned a 7.3 WAR. His defensive range factor was 4.84. Pedroia finished the season with a WAR of 4.4 and a RF/9 of 4.23. Kinsler should finish above Pedroia, but the race will be tight with Cano.
