Yankees second baseman DJ LeMahieu has been named a finalist for the Rawlings Gold Glove Award.
LeMahieu played multiple positions for the Yankees this season due to injuries, but played second base in 75 games, including 66 starts. He recorded a .993 fielding percentage and only had two errors.
The other finalists for the AL 2B Golden Glove are Houston Astros star Jose Altuve and Yolmer Sanchez of the Chicago White Sox.
In comparison, Altuve played 121 games at second base and had a .972 fielding percentage with 11 errors. While Sanchez had a .987 fielding percentage with 9 errors in 149 games at second base.
The league's fielding percentage at second base was .981 during the 2019 season.
LeMahieu's body of work may be smaller than the other finalists, but his efficiency is what should stand out to voters.
If LeMahieu wins, it will be the fourth Gold Glove in his career, and third straight -- he won the NL Gold Glove in 2014, 2017, and 2018 while with the Colorado Rockies.
