Astros' Altuve, Springer win Silver Slugger Awards

George Springer and Jose Altuve became the first pair of Astros to win Silver Sluggers in the same year since Jeff Bagwell and Mike Hampton did so in 1999

The Silver Slugger is awarded to the best offensive player at each position, in each league, as voted by managers and coaches.

Seattle Mariners designated hitter Nelson Cruz has been selected to the 2017 American League Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger team. Lindor set a single-season franchise record for home runs by a shortstop (33), which is also a Major League Baseball record by a switch-hitting shortstop.

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. Only Martinez, who was 37 when he collected a league-leading 145 RBIs for the Mariners in 2000, was older.

Judge hit 52 homers with a 1.049 OPS, and Springer hit.283 with 34 homers and an.889 OPS.

At the close of regular trading, its last week's stock price volatility was 17.79% which for the month reaches 36.3%. The company had revenue of $2.96 billion during the quarter, compared to analysts' expectations of $2.84 billion.

Bob Forsch (1980, 1987) and Jason Marquis (2005) are the only previous Cardinals pitchers to win a Silver Slugger Award. Springer ranked among the top five for AL outfielders in runs (second), homers (fourth), on-base percentage (fifth), slugging percentage (sixth) and OPS (fifth). He is one of 10 in club history with multiple 100-RBI seasons. Upton won Silver Sluggers in the National League in 2011 and 2014. Selections were based on a combination of offensive statistics including batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, as well as the managers' and coaches' general impressions of a player's overall offensive value.
