Andre Ethier, Clayton Kershaw, Adrian Gonzalez named Gold Glove Award finalists

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

Ethier, Kershaw, and Gonzalez each won a Gold Glove Award in 2011 as well.

Both Clayton Kershaw and Andre Ethier of the Los Angeles Dodgers were named finalists at their respective positions for a National League Gold Glove Award, with each trying to win the honor for the second straight year. First baseman Adrian Gonzalez, whom the Dodgers acquired from the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 25, was named a Gold Glove finalist in the American League.

The winners will be announced at 6 p.m. PT on Tuesday, in a special on ESPN2.

Kershaw led the major leagues with 11 pick-offs this season and won the Gold Glove last year. He is a finalist at pitcher in the National League along with Mark Buehrle of the Miami Marlins and Bronson Arroyo of the Cincinnati Reds. Buehrle won Gold Gloves in the American League in each of the last three seasons while with the Chicago White Sox.

Kershaw could win his second award in three days, as he was honored on Sunday with the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award, recognizing his accomplishments both on and off the field.

Ethier, who won a Gold Glove in 2011, is a finalist in right field along with Jay Bruce of the Cincinnati Reds and Jason Heyward of the Atlanta Braves.

Gonzalez played 123 of his 159 games in the American League in 2012, and is a finalist in the AL at first base along with Mark Teixeira of the New York Yankees and Eric Hosmer of the Kansas City Royals. Gonzalez won the American League Gold Glove Award at first base in 2011, and won the awards in 2008 and 2009 in the National League when he was with the San Diego Padres.
