Mariners' Nelson Cruz named Silver Slugger at DH

Mariners' Nelson Cruz named Silver Slugger at DH

Nelson Cruz won another Silver Slugger award Thursday. The award is the second of Cruz's career after he was selected as one of the American League's top offensive outfielders in 2015.

2017 had the most home runs in a single season, with the 2000 record being broken on September 19.

Cruz led the American League in RBIs while also ranking fourth in home runs, fifth in slugging and fifth in OPS. In the AL this season, he ranked first in infield hits, tied for second in runs (with Springer), was third in on-base percentage, third in stolen bases, third in OPS, fifth in total bases and sixth in slugging.

Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have been named 2017 Silver Slugger Award winners, as announced this evening by Louisville Slugger® and MLB Network.

Springer hit.283 with 34 homers, 85 RBIs and 112 runs scored and made his first All-Star team.

Buster Posey was honored with the 2017 Silver Slugger Award for the fourth time in his career.

Bob Forsch (1980, 1987) and Jason Marquis (2005) are the only previous Cardinals pitchers to win a Silver Slugger Award. He also set new Major League records with 103 RBI and 383 total bases from the leadoff position. Abreu had only a slight edge according to advanced numbers, but considering that Silver Slugger usually defaults to the RBI guys, it's surprising that Abreu's 102-94 win there didn't make him the choice.
