Cubs 2B Darwin Barney named Gold Glove finalist

David Banks-US PRESSWIRE

Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney was named a finalist for the National League Gold Glove on Monday. The award will be handed out on Tuesday night.

The Cubs' Darwin Barney was named one of the three finalists at second base for the NL Gold Glove on Monday, along with the Reds' Brandon Phillips and the Diamondbacks' Aaron Hill. The winners of the Gold Glove awards will be announced Tuesday night. Phillips has won three of the past four Gold Gloves, and Barney and Hill have yet to win.

Barney played 141 consecutive errorless games in 2012, setting a National League record and tying the MLB record set by Placido Polanco in 2007 with the Tigers. Barney finally made an error on Sept. 28, when he made an errant throw against Arizona.

Barney has already won an award from The Fielding Bible for his 2012 efforts. The Fielding Bible gives awards similar to Gold Gloves, but only gives one award for each position, not one for the AL and NL. He is the team's only candidate for a Gold Glove.
