ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Cardinals were statistically one of the best run-preventing teams in all of Major League Baseball – the number of Gold Glove finalists helps prove that.
Catcher Yadier Molina, pitcher Jack Flaherty, first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, second baseman Kolten Wong, short stop Paul DeJong and center fielder Harrison Bader are all finalists for 2019 Gold Glove Awards.
If selected as the winner, it would be a first for Flaherty, Wong, DeJong and Bader. Molina won his ninth career Gold Glove last season, putting him just one behind Ivan Rodriguez and Johnny Bench who have the most among MLB catchers.
Goldschmidt has won three career Gold Gloves during his time with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2013, 2015, 2017).
