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.
