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.

The award is voted on by major-league managers and coaches and presented by Louisville Slugger. This marked his second career Silver Slugger award. It was Baez's first such award, and he's the second Cubs second baseman to win a Silver Slugger, joining Ryne Sandberg (1984-'85, 1988-'92).

Martinez, 31, became the first player in Major League Baseball history to win two Silver Slugger awards in the same season, taking the crown for both the outfield and designated hitter positions. At least he is cleaning up elsewhere, winning the Hank Aaron Award last month as the AL's best offensive performer.

White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu won his second American League Silver Slugger Award on Thursday, given to the best hitters at each position in each league. He also started the All-Star Game at Nationals Park, batting cleanup as the AL's designated hitter. In 14 postseason games, Martinez hit.300 with three home runs, 14 RBI, and a.403 on-base percentage, homering in the clinching games of both the ALCS and the World Series. With several more seasons of team control, it seems more and more every day like the Red Sox truly have a bargain on their hands with J.D. Martinez.

Meanwhile, six players received their first Silver Slugger while the Indians, Red Sox, Rockies and Diamondbacks all had multiple winners. 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.
