Rangers' Adrian Beltre named Gold Glove finalist

Adrian Beltre has been selected as one of three finalists for the American League Gold Glove at third base, Rawlings posted on its Twitter account Friday.

The Texas Rangers third baseman has won the last two awards, and has four in his career. Evan Longoria of the Rays and Manny Machado of the Orioles are the other two finalists.

Beltre is the only Rangers player to make it as a finalist this year.

Beltre won consecutive Gold Gloves in 2007-08 in Seattle, and in 2011-12 with Texas. If he wins a fifth Gold Glove, he'll be just the eighth third baseman to win that many. Brooks Robinson has the most Gold Gloves among third basemen with 16 followed by Mike Schmidt (10). Buddy Bell and Robin Ventura are tied for third-most with six.

Beltre had a .959 fielding percentage, 25 total double plays and committed 14 errors on the season. Machado led the league with a .973 fielding percentage, 42 total double plays and committed 13 errors. Longoria was second in fielding percentage at .972 with 27 total double plays and 11 errors.
