Four Cubs have been recognized for their defense in 2016 on Thursday.
Jake Arrieta, Jason Heyward, Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell were all named finalists for the Gold Glove Award at their respective positions. Winners will be announced Tuesday, Nov. 8.
Arrieta was tied for second among National League pitchers with five Defensive Runs Saved. Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon led with eight.
Heyward, who's a three-time NL Gold Glove Award winner, had the most DRS for right fielders with 14 and also led Defensive Wins Above Replacement with 1.3.
Rizzo's 5.7 Ultimate Zone Rating ranked second among first basemen in the NL, according to fangraphs.com, and his .996 field percentage ranked fifth.
Russell was tied for most DRS among NL shortstops with 19 (the second-best had nine).
The two most notable Cubs left off the list were Javier Baez and Ben Zobrist due to their versatility throughout the regular season.
