Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier lost about two months of playing time when he broke his left hand.

But that didn’t cost him a chance to win a second straight AL Gold Glove.

Kiermaier on Thursday was named a finalist, along with Boston’s Jackie Bradley Jr. and Toronto’s Kevin Pillar.

Rays 3B Evan Longoria seemed deserving, but was not named a finalist. Baltimore’s Manny Machado, Seattle’s Kyle Seager and Texas’ Adrian Beltre were.

Winners will be announced Nov. 8.
