2023 Golden Glove nominees confirmed, including pitcher Pedi, catcher Yang Ji Hyun, and more

After winning three pitching titles and earning Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors in the 2023 regular season, pitcher Eric Peddy (NC Dinos) will reach for the Golden Glove.

Catcher Yang Yang-ji (Doosan Bears) will attempt to win his ninth career Golden Glove.

The Korea Baseball Organization (KBO) announced the nominees for the 2023 Shinhan Bank SOL KBO Golden Glove on Monday.

There are 81 Golden Glove nominees across 10 positions.

Twenty-eight pitchers who completed at least one of the following: 10 wins, 30 saves, or 30 holds in regulation innings are eligible for this year’s Golden Glove.

Catchers and fielders are eligible if they have played at least 720 innings (team games X 5 innings) of defense at their position.

Hitters who batted designated hitter for at least 297 plate appearances, which is ⅔ of their regular season at-bats, are eligible.

Players who won an individual regular-season title this year are automatically eligible for the Golden Glove.

Seven catchers, three first basemen, five second basemen, five third basemen, eight shortstops, 20 outfielders and five designated hitters await the voters’ selection.

The Twins, who won the division this year, have 12 Golden Glove nominees, the most of any team. The last-place (10th) Kiwoom Heroes have just three Golden Glove nominees.

Media members, including reporters, photographers, broadcasters’ PDs, announcers, and commentators, will vote from 10 a.m. on Nov. 29 to 3 p.m. on Dec. 1.

The winners of the honor will be revealed at a ceremony on December 11 at the COEX Auditorium in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.

Pedi is a shoo-in to win the Golden Glove for pitching.

The record for the most KBO Golden Gloves won by a pitcher in history is 10, held by Doosan Bears manager Lee Seung-yeop (formerly of Samsung).

Catcher Yang Yang-ji and third baseman Choi Jeong-jeong have won eight Golden Gloves up until last year and are challenging Lee’s record.

Both Yang and Choi (SSG Rangers) have been nominated for the Golden Glove again this year.

The odds are in Yang’s favor.

Yang is the favorite to win the award.

He batted .297 with 29 doubles and 87 home runs, including a career-high on-base percentage (.548), but he’ll have to compete with Noh Shi-hwan (Hanwha Eagles), who leads the league in home runs (31) and RBIs (101), at third base. 슬롯
