Kiermaier, Longoria Gold Glove finalists
Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier and 3B Evan Longoria are finalists for Gold Glove awards.
Both finished in the top three at their positions in voting by American League coaches and managers. The award winners will be announced Nov. 10.
Kiermaier, considered by many the favorite after a season of highlight-reel plays, is competing against Angels star Mike Trout and Toronto's Kevin Pillar.
Longoria, who was won the award twice before, is joined by Baltimore's Manny Machado and Texas' Adrian Beltre.
Also, the Rays hired Nashville Predators CEO Jeff Cogen for a yet-to-be-defined business-side front office position. Read more on Cogen here.
