Outfielder Justin Upton and DH Nelson Cruz rounded out the American League winners. The outfielder's home runs set a franchise record and tied for the seventh-most homers recorded by a leadoff hitter in Major League Baseball history.
And despite the career low home run figure, it was his most productive year at the plate since his 2012 MVP season when he won the National League batting title. There were eventually 6,105 home runs this season.
Louisville Slugger's Silver Slugger award winners were determined by a vote of Major League Baseball managers and coaches who vote for the players they felt were the best offensive producers at each position in both the American and National Leagues.
Cruz led the Mariners in games, runs, home runs, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS and extra-base hits.
Selections are based on a combination of offensive stats, including batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in addition to the managers' and coaches' views of a player's overall offensive value.
Cruz recorded at least 100 RBIs for the second consecutive season and the third time in his career.
2017 was was the year of the home run and the Silver Slugger Awards honoring this achievement were announced Thursday. The only other Giant to be awarded with as many Silver Sluggers is Barry Bonds, he had nine in San Francisco, 12 total for his career.
