Several Arizona Diamondbacks players are up for awards.

Three players were finalists for the Gold Glove Award at their respective positions.

First baseman Christian Walker, center fielder Alek Thomas and right fielder/utility man Daulton Varsho all made the cut.

Walker was also named a Silver Slugger Award finalist, along with Ketel Marte at second base.

In this week’s episode of The Ain’t No Fang, an Arizona Sports podcast, Steve Zinsmeister and Cody Fincher debate the candidacies of all these players and compare them to some of the other finalists.

It’s always a good thing when Arizona players get recognized on a national scale for their talents on the field and at the plate.

That’s more than they could say in 2021 when the organization had only one finalist for each award.
