Indians First Baseman Carlos Santana Wins Silver Slugger Award

Cleveland Indians first baseman Carlos Santana is adding to his trophy case after winning a Silver Slugger award on Thursday. 

Silver Sluggers are given annually to the best hitter at each position in both leagues, as determined by a vote of players and coaches. 

Santana earned the award for a season that saw him achieve career-highs in batting average, walks, on-base percentage, and runs batted in. 

Santana ended the season with 34 home runs, 93 RBIs, 108 walks, 110 runs scored, a 281 batting average, and a selection to the A.L. All-Star team as the starting first baseman.
