Royals' Eric Hosmer named American League's 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award victor

Nelson Cruz won another Silver Slugger award Thursday.

Ramirez posted the most extra-base hits in a single game on September 3 in Detroit.

Cruz led the American League in RBIs while also ranking fourth in home runs, fifth in slugging and fifth in OPS. For the regular season, the second baseman posted a.346 batting average and led the AL in hits with 204, becoming the first player in MLB history to be the outright leader in hits in his league in four consecutive seasons.

The Silver Slugger Awards presented by Louisville Slugger go to the top offensive players at each position in each league as selected in a vote by Major League Baseball's coaches and managers.

Cruz led the Mariners in games, runs, home runs, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS and extra-base hits.

November 9: DH Nelson Cruz wins American League Silver Slugger award after hitting 39 home runs leading the league with 119 RBIs. Springer ranked among the top five for AL outfielders in runs (second), homers (fourth), on-base percentage (fifth), slugging percentage (sixth) and OPS (fifth).

Any award attributed to the 2017 Giants should be relished, and one that involves the word "slugger" should particularly be cherished, given the Giants were second to last in batting stats.

Silver Slugger award winners are determined by a vote of Major League Baseball managers and coaches.
