Wainwright also ranked first in the majors with his.262 batting average and his.452 slugging percentage, as well as his 127 career hits, 68 RBI, 34 doubles and 46 extra base hits.

The two All-Stars are the first pair of Astros teammates to win Silver Sluggers in the same season since 1999 when Jeff Bagwell and Mike Hampton took home the award. He led the American League in RBI with 119 while also ranking 4th in home runs (39), 5th in slugging (.549) and 5th in OPS (.924).

Nelson Cruz of the Mariners Thursday won a Silver Slugger as the top designated hitter in the American League, joining Edgar Martinez (four times) as the only Seattle DHs to win the award. He had a club-record 38 home runs as a designated hitter, surpassing Martinez (37) in 2000. He became the first player in Rockies history to have three consecutive seasons of 130 or more RBIs, and the first third baseman in big-league history to accomplish the feat. Murphy was the only National to score a Silver Slugger honor, the 13th earned by a Washington player since the team moved to D.C.in 2005. He is one of 10 in club history with multiple 100-RBI seasons.

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