Tulo unable to catch first Gold Glove

Troy E. Renck and Patrick Saunders

DENVER – By any measure, Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is a great defender. But, he is not yet a Gold Glover. The Rockies, despite having three strong candidates, were shut out for the fifth consecutive season, according to a major league source.

For the second time in three years, Tulowitzki lost out to Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins.

“It would be a dream to one day win a Gold Glove, and hopefully my time will come,” Tulowitzki told The Denver Post today. “But in the end it’s not about individual awards. It’s about the Rockies winning games and a World Series.”

The Rawlings Gold Glove is voted on by opposing managers and coaches. The winners will be announced at 1 p.m. local time.
