Last season, Pirates catcher Jacob Stallings was in jeopardy of possibly not making the roster.

Now he’s a Good Glove Finalist at catcher.

Rawlings Baseball announced on Thursday that Stallings along with Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras and Cincinnati Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart are the three finalists in the National League.

Stallings was one of the more reliable Pirates players during the shortened 2020 season with a batting average of .248 with 13 runs and 18 RBI.

He had a .990 fielding percentage and 379 put outs and committed four errors.
