Teixeira & Cano Win Gold Gloves

The Gold Glove award winners were announced last night on ESPN2 and Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano were the Yankees that took home the hardware. This is the third time in the last four seasons that the Yankees have had multiple Gold Glove award winners in the same season. Teix led all first basemen with a .999 fielding percentage committing just one error on his way to his 5th Gold Glove at first base, third as a Yankee. Cano finished second in the league in fielding percentage with a  .992 rate and only making six errors. This is Cano's second Gold Glove in his career, his first coming in 2010. Matt Weiters beat out Russell Martin for the Gold Glove Award at catcher after Russell was announced as a finalists on Monday. Congratulations to Mark and Robby!
