Rawlings releases qualifications for Gold Gloves

Rawlings has released the official changes to Gold Glove voting, largely dealing with qualifications.

Most notably, there will no longer be three Gold Gloves awarded to players in a catch-all outfield position, as previously reported. Now, one individual award will be given to a left fielder, center fielder and right fielder. Players who rove around the outfield will qualify at the specific outfield position where he played the most innings provided it was a minimum of 75 percent (475 innings) of total innings at the specific position.

Here are the rest of the qualifications:

To qualify for consideration for a particular position, a player must have played a minimum number of games at that position:

  • A catcher must have played in at least half of his team’s games by his team’s 128th game (a minimum of 64 games);
  • All infielders and outfielders must have played in at least 55% of his team’s games by his team’s 128th game (a minimum of 70 games);
  • All infielders and position-specific outfielders must also have played in the field for at least 525 innings in those minimum 70 games;
  • Outfielders with more than 55% of total games played but without 55% at one specific outfield position qualify at the specific outfield position where he played the most innings if he played a minimum of 75% of his total innings (a minimum of 475 innings at the specific outfield position);
  • All pitchers must have pitched in at least 128 innings by his team’s 128th game.

Rawlings releases qualifications for Gold Gloves

I got to give Rawlings credit, at least they didn't use the 1999 Rafael Palmeiro qualifications for 1st Basemen. Remember that one?He had played only 28 games there and unjustly received a Gold Glove.
