    The MLB postseason awards began rolling in on Tuesday night, and Adrian Beltre was the lone finalist from the Texas Rangers up for a Gold Glove award, but the veteran third baseman couldn't bring home the hardware.

    Beltre, a four-time winner of the award, finished behind Oakland's Josh Donaldson and first-time winner Kyle Seager, of the Seattle Mariners who happens to be a noted Rangers killer.

    Beltre didn't have a bad season, obviously, but he was not as good as either Donaldson or Seager when it comes to all the defensive metrics being used in today's game, most notably DRS, or defensive runs saved.

    In all, Beltre had 363 chances at third base, his most in his past three seasons with Rangers. At 35, Beltre's defensive skills have declined, but they're still well above league average at the hot corner.
