The award goes to one player per league, per position and is selected by a vote of MLB coaches and managers. He had a club-record 38 home runs as a designated hitter, surpassing Martinez (37) in 2000. Posey notched 34 doubles and hit a career low 12 home runs - 11th in the rankings amongst catchers.

Cruz, who played in his age-36 season in 2017, is tied with Kansas City's Hal McRae (133 RBIs, 1982) as the second-oldest player to lead the American League outright in RBIs.

The 28-year-old set career highs in runs, hits, home runs, batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in the 2017 season.

Both the Houston Astros' Jose Altuve and George Springer have won American League Silver Slugger Awards, Major League Baseball announced Thursday.

Cruz led the Mariners in games, runs, home runs, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS and extra-base hits.

Nelson Cruz won his second Silver Slugger for hitting 39 homers as the Mariners' DH last season. Springer ranked among the top five for AL outfielders in runs (second), homers (fourth), on-base percentage (fifth), slugging percentage (sixth) and OPS (fifth).

The Silver Slugger Award is Altuve's fourth and Springer's first. The only other Giant to be awarded with as many Silver Sluggers is Barry Bonds, he had nine in San Francisco, 12 total for his career.
