White Sox second baseman Yolmer Sanchez, who rebounded from a rough start in the field in 2019 but finished strong, has been nominated for a Gold Glove Award.
Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito was also one of three nominees at his position in the American League.
Sanchez, who joins Jose Altuve and DJ LeMahieu as the AL second base nominees, made three errors in his first five games. He took over the position after playing third base in 2018, moving to the middle of the infield when Yoan Moncada switched from second base to third base.
Sanchez, 27, finished with nine errors and led all second baseman in defensive runs saved and ultimate zone rating. He batted .252/.318/.321 with two homers and 43 RBI over 149 games in what could be his last season with the Sox, who are expecting to promote top second base prospect Nick Madrigal early next season.
Sanchez made $4.625 million in 2019 and is pegged by MLB Trade Rumors to earn $6.2 million via arbitration should the Sox tender a contract.
Mike Leake of the Mariners and Jose Berrios of the Twins are the other pitcher nominees. Giolito, an All-Star, did not commit an error and made major improvements holding runners on in 2019.
