Acuna would become the sixth Braves outfielder to win a Gold Glove in the past 22 years, joining Andruw Jones (1998-2007), Jeff Francoeur (2007), Jason Heyward (2012, 2014), Ender Inciarte (2016-18) and Nick Markakis (2018).
The Braves didn’t have a Gold Glove winner last season after having a franchise-record three in 2018 (Freddie Freeman, Markakis, Inciarte). Freeman, who surprisingly was not among the three 2020 Gold Glove finalists at first base, won Wilson Defensive Player of The Year for the position last season.
Rawlings released the three finalists at each position in each league Thursday afternoon. The Gold Glove winners will be announced Nov. 3.
