The award goes to one player per league, per position and is selected by a vote of MLB coaches and managers.

Nelson Cruz won another Silver Slugger award Thursday.

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. He had two doubles and two homers among his 11 hits and drove in 11 runs.

Ramirez posted the most extra-base hits in a single game on September 3 in Detroit. For the regular season, the second baseman posted a.346 batting average and led the AL in hits with 204, becoming the first player in MLB history to be the outright leader in hits in his league in four consecutive seasons. Only Martinez, who was 37 when he collected a league-leading 145 RBIs for the Mariners in 2000, was older.

Springer hit.283 with 34 homers, 85 RBIs and 112 runs scored and made his first All-Star team.

Bob Forsch (1980, 1987) and Jason Marquis (2005) are the only previous Cardinals pitchers to win a Silver Slugger Award.

Posey hit.320 with a.400 on-base percentage and.462 slugging percentage.

It was the first Silver Slugger for each player.
