Rawlings announced the three finalists for the Gold Glove Award at each position. In the National League, Jake Arrieta, Zack Greinke, and Adam Wainwright were nominated for the Gold Glove at pitcher. Bartolo Colon was not nominated despite his 8 DRS being the best among Major League pitchers and made great plays like this look easy:

Overall, no Mets player was nominated for a Gold Glove at any position this year.  Last year, Yoenis Cespedes won the Gold Glove in the American League, and Curtis Granderson was a finalist for the Gold Glove in the National League.

The last player to win a Gold Glove for his time with the Mets was Juan Lagares in 2014.
