The Cincinnati Reds have six finalists for Gold Glove Awards. That total leads all National League teams.
As a team, the Reds had just 89 errors in 6,050 total chances, good for a .985 fielding percentage. That gave them the second fewest errors and second-best fielding percentage in the National League.
Standouts from the Reds defensive efforts are their six finalists: Bronson Arroyo, Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Zack Cozart, Drew Stubbs and Jay Bruce.
This list will highlight the achievements of each of these players and rank their chances from one to six.
Quick note: I will use the stat Rtot in every slide and Rdrs on the pitcher's slide.
Rtot is a composite stat which, according to Baseball-Reference.com, is a measure of the number of runs above or below average a player was worth based on the number of plays made.
Rdrs measures the exact same thing, it's just calculated by a different statistics provider.
Now, here's what to expect when the Gold Glove Awards are announced tonight.
