Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

On Monday, Major League Baseball announced finalists for this year's Gold Glove awards, with a pair of Phillies making their way onto the list.

Shortstop Jimmy Rollins and catcher Carlos Ruiz are among the last cuts at their respective positions for the awards, which will be handed out on the 2012 Gold Glove Announcement Show on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. EST.

Rollins will be looking to take home his fourth Gold Glove, after winning the award in 2007, 2008 and 2009. The veteran finished the 2012 season with just 13 errors and a .978 fielding percentage, and on Tuesday will compete with Cincinnati's Zack Cozart, the Nationals' Ian Desmond and Jose Reyes of the Miami Marlins as the National League's top shortstop.

Meanwhile, Ruiz will be looking for his first Gold Glove, after a 2012 campaign where he committed just six errors and had a .994 fielding percentage. The 33-year-old veteran will go up against Arizona's Miguel Montero as well as the heavy favorite, Yadier Molina of the Cardinals, for the award.

Molina has the longest active Gold Glove streak in baseball, winning four in a row dating back to 2008.
