White Sox’ Jose Abreu wins second Silver Slugger Award

Martinez is first player to receive two Silver Slugger Awards in one season.

Players have received Silver Slugger Award votes at multiple positions in past years, but Martinez is the first player to win the award twice in the same season. (Note that the outfield is not broken down by left, center, and right designations.) Louisville Slugger is, naturally, the sponsor to the award. While we won't know the major individual award - MVP, Cy Young, Manager of the Year and Rookie of the Year - winners until next week, Major League Baseball has set the table this week with a couple tasty appetizers.

Martinez, 31, became the first player in Major League Baseball history to win two Silver Slugger awards in the same season, taking the crown for both the outfield and designated hitter positions. With a stacked Boston Red Sox team to match, Martinez will be one of the top players to watch next season. He also started the All-Star Game at Nationals Park, batting cleanup as the AL's designated hitter.

Abreu hit.265 with 22 homers, 78 RBIs, 36 doubles and a.798 OPS. In 14 postseason games, Martinez hit.300 with three home runs, 14 RBI, and a.403 on-base percentage, homering in the clinching games of both the ALCS and the World Series.

In his first season in Boston, J.D. Martinez mashed no matter where he played for the Red Sox. Before Altuve's first Silver Slugger back in 2014, the last Astro to win the award was Lee back in 2007. It's also worth noting that the Silver Slugger does not differentiate between outfield positions.
