Despite not being known as a great defensive ball club, the Philadelphia Phillies finished the 2023 Regular Season with the fourth best Team Fielding Percentage in Major League Baseball (.988).  On Wednesday, MLB announced the 2023 Golden Glove Award Finalists and four Phillies players were among the nominees.

The least surprising of the Phillies Gold Glove Nominees is Catcher JT Realmuto, who won the award in 2019 and 2022 as a member of the Philadelphia organization.  Realmuto had the best Fielding Percentage among National League Catchers this season (.998) and threw out the third most base stealers (23).  One of the other finalists is playing for the Phillies opponent in the NLCS: Diamondbacks Catcher Gabriel Moreno.
