Clayton Kershaw picked up the Roberto Clemente Award on Sunday night in Detroit, and he could take home another trophy for his mantel on Tuesday. Kershaw and teammate Andre Ethier were named finalists for Rawlings Gold Glove Awards on Monday.
The winners, one of three finalists at each position, will be announced on Tuesday at 6 p.m. PT on ESPN2. The Gold Gloves are voted on by managers and up to six coaches from each team in the corresponding league, with the caveat of not being able to vote for players on your own team.
Adrian Gonzalez, who played 123 of his 159 games in 2012 in the American League, was named a finalist for a Gold Glove at first base in the American League. Gonzalez won Gold Gloves at first base in the AL with the Red Sox in 2011, and with the Padres in the NL in 2008 and 2009. Gonzalez is a finalist at first base along with Mark Teixeira and Eric Hosmer.
Both Ethier and Kershaw won Gold Gloves last season.
Kershaw is a finalist at National League pitcher, along with Mark Buehrle and Bronson Arroyo. Buehrle has won Gold Gloves in each of the last three seasons in the AL with the White Sox. Kershaw led the major leagues with 11 pickoffs this season.
If Kershaw wins, he would join Andy Messersmith (1974-1975) and Greg Maddux (2006, 2008) as the only Dodgers pitchers to win multiple Gold Gloves.
Ethier joins right field finalists Jay Bruce and Jason Heyward in the National League. If Ethier does win, he would join Willie Davis (1971-1973) and Raul Mondesi (1995, 1997) as the only Dodgers outfielders to win multiple Gold Gloves.
