Rays centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier and third baseman Evan Longoria are finalists for American League Gold Glove awards.

Both finished in the top three at their positions in voting by AL coaches and managers, announced Thursday. Winners will be announced Nov. 10.

Kiermaier, considered a favorite after a season of highlight-reel plays, is competing with the Angels' Mike Trout and the Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar. Longoria, who has two Gold Gloves, is up against the Orioles' Manny Machado and the Rangers' Adrian Beltre.

Also, the Rays hired Jeff Cogen, CEO of the NHL's Nashville Predators, for a to-be-defined front-office position on their business side.
