Based on runs erased by fielders their Clutch Defensive Rating in the game is somewhere between a CD1 (worst) and a CD5 (best). However, we only give a couple of CD5 spots out based on this rating - we mainly save them for players who have been nominated for a Gold Glove in the last 4 seasons. We just still believe observations has to be part of fielding ratings - as great as the improvement in stats has been.
The following is the list of the new Gold Glove nominees for the 2020 season. The players whose cards are thus being upgraded to a CD5 are bolded, while the others were already CD5 players before the new rating. We list their current team in the Statis-Pro cards, as well as if they also have a card for our offseason (all-star from their country, or if from the US an all-star among the college baseball conference where they played.
