Rizzo joins Barney as Cubs Gold Glove finalist

Darwin Barney, the reigning National League Gold Glove second baseman, as expected made the three-man finalist list at his position again this year.

Joining him as a Cubs’ finalist is first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who completed his first full season in the big leagues in 2013.

Both have a chance to salvage disappointing offensive seasons with fielding hardware.

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ A.J. Ellis and Cincinnati Reds’ Brandon Phillips are also finalists at second.

Other first-base finalists are Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt and the Dodgers’ Adrian Gonzalez.

Rawlings announced the winner during a 6 p.m. telecast on Tuesday’s scheduled day off between Game 5 and a possible Game 6 of the World Series.

The Cubs’ other Gold Glove hopeful, catcher Welington Castillo did not make the finalist cut.
