Mike Trout wins 2018 Silver Slugger Award

Martinez becomes first player to win Silver Slugger at two different positions

Virtually every baseball fan under the sun knew full well that J.D.

Boston's three Silver Sluggers are tied with the Colorado Rockies for the most in 2018. As a result, Martinez made Silver Slugger history by winning the award at two separate positions. This marked his second career Silver Slugger award.

As insane as it sounds, Martinez, who played 57 games in the outfield and 93 games at the DH position, was actually the recipient of the same award in two separate positions.

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu were honored with Silver Sluggers awards Thursday evening for being the best offensive performers at their respective positions in their respective leagues.

Martinez started 93 games at designated hitter and 57 in the outfield. His 43 home runs are the most ever for a player in his first season with the Red Sox, as he joined Ted Williams and Jimmie Foxx as the only Red Sox ever to hit at least.330 with 40 homers and 130 RBI.

Baez hit.290 with 34 homers, a National League-best 111 RBIs, 101 runs, 40 doubles, nine triples and an.881 OPS, setting career-best marks in each category. This is the fourth time the Red Sox have featured three Silver Slugger winners in a single season, having also done so in 2005, 2011, and 2016.

Among AL second baseman, Altuve ranked first in batting average, OBP and slugging, while ranking second in hits and runs scored (84) and third in stolen bases.
