It appears Harrison Bader may finally get that long-coveted Rawlings Gold Glove for his play in center field. Whether it was a jaw-dropping dive or a painful-looking bounce off the wall, Bader had a season filled with tremendous defense in center field.
Bader had 15 defensive runs saved, 14 outs above average and 13 runs prevented. He has a fielding percentage of .990.
Bader is deserving and looks to finally have a great shot at finally getting a Gold Glove. He’s competing for the honor against Bryan Reynolds of the Pittsburgh Pirates and Jackie Bradley Jr., of the Milwaukee Brewers.
