Gardner, Tanaka and Judge nominated for Rawlings Gold Glove Award

Rawlings announced their nominees for the 2018 Gold Glove Awards on Thursday afternoon, and this isn’t the first rodeo for two of the three Yankees nominees.

Outfielders Brett Gardner (LF) and Aaron Judge (RF) have both been nominated for a second consecutive year. Gardner will compete against Kansas City Royals’ outfielder Alex Gordon and Boston Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi.

Judge will compete against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Kole Calhoun and Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts.

However, Gardner and Judge aren’t the only Yankees to receive recognition for their fielding. This year, pitcher Masahiro Tanaka joins them as a Gold Glove nominee. Tanaka will compete against Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber and Houston Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel.

The 2018 Rawlings Gold Glove Awards will be held on Sunday, November 4 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
