Cano announced as Gold Glove Award finalist

All-Star second baseman vying for third honor in last four years

NEW YORK -- Robinson Cano already counts two Rawlings Gold Glove Awards to his name, and the Yankees second baseman's splendid performance in the field this season has earned him the nomination for another.

Cano was announced as a finalist for the American League Gold Glove at second base on Friday, a select group of slick-fielding keystoners that includes Dustin Pedroia of the Red Sox and Ben Zobrist of the Rays. The winners will be announced Tuesday night at 8 ET on ESPN2.

The 31-year-old Cano previously won Gold Glove Awards at the position in 2010 and '12.

The AL's starting second baseman for the All-Star Game, Cano made 153 starts at the position this season, handling 657 chances in 1,350 1/3 innings. He made just six errors for a .991 fielding percentage.

Over the last six seasons, Cano has compiled a .989 fielding percentage, handling a Major League-high 4,480 chances at second base over that span.

Cano is one of two Yankees second basemen in history to win a Gold Glove, joining Bobby Richardson, who earned the honor in five straight seasons from 1961-65.
