Brewers shut out of Fielding Bible

The Fielding Bible Awards were unveiled on Monday, in which panel of experts, including’s Peter Gammons, stat guru Bill James and defensive metric innovator John Dewan, selected the top defensive player at each position by ranking players 1-10. The Brewers had precisely zero players make the top 10 at his position.

A couple came close. Ryan Braun just missed the cut among left fielders and ditto for Alcides Escobar among shortstops. Carlos Gomez got a couple of votes among center fielders. 
But that’s it.
