With news dropping just minutes ago that Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw are finalists for the NL Cy Young Award, there was some buzz about the Los Angeles Dodgers having an trophy-filled night as the Gold Glove Awards would be announced later Tuesday evening.
That would not be the case, however, as both Greinke and Adrian Gonzalez were shut out of their respective honors went to other players at their position. Paul Goldschmidt of those Arizona Diamondbacks took home the trophy at first.
The Dodgers would have to make do with just one gold glove award on the night, as Greinke took home the trophy as a pitcher. Adrian Gonzalez was shut out at first base by Paul Goldschmidt who won the award for his play for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Greinke becomes the Dodger since Steve Garvey to win back-to-back Gold Glove Awards and could be the first pitcher to win the NL Cy Young and Gold Glove in the same season since Clayton Kershaw did so in 2011 if his name is called next Wednesday.
Congratulations to everyone nominated and Greinke in particular, for what was nothing short of a spectacular season by any measure.
