ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is a finalist for a Rawlings Gold Glove Award once again.

Beltre is of the top three defenders at third base for the third consecutive year.

Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria and Baltimore's Manny Machado are the other two finalists at third base in the American League.

The winners of the Gold Glove at each position in the American League and National League will be unveiled during a one-hour special on ESPN's Baseball Tonight. The 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award Announcement Show will be broadcast on ESPN2 on Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Beltre, who has won four Gold Gloves and the last two at third base in the AL, committed 14 errors this season.

The other three-time finalists are Cincinnati right fielder Jay Bruce and second baseman Brandon Phillips, New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon, Baltimore shortstop J.J. Hardy and catcher Matt Wieters, St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina and Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia.
