Going forward, the age-28 second baseman remains a favorite for the award in subsequent seasons if he remains relatively healthy. 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.

The Astros' second baseman is the first player in club history to win five consecutive Silver Sluggers. He along with Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell, George Springer, Moises Alou, Carlos Lee, Morgan Ensberg, Mike Hampton, Glenn Davis, Jose Cruz, and Dickie Thon as the only players in club history to win a Silver Slugger. The award goes to the players deemed the best hitter at each position by Major League Baseball coaches and managers.

He spent most of his time as Boston's DH, hitting.297 with 27 homers and 79 RBIs to go with a.970 OPS in 93 games at the position.

J.D. Martinez and Mookie Betts have received 2018 American League Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger Awards. 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.

This is the second Silver Slugger Award for Betts, who also represented Boston in 2016 as an outfielder.

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.
