Mike Trout, Braves trio among 2019 Silver Slugger award winners

Twins' Mitch Garver, Nelson Cruz win Silver Slugger awards

LSU now has four Silver Slugger Award winners in its baseball history - outfielder Albert Belle won the American League award five times (1993-96, Cleveland; 1998, Chicago White Sox), and Aaron Hill was the AL victor at second base in 2009 (Toronto).

Cruz has now won three Silver Slugger awards in his career - he also was honored in 2015 and 2017 while with Seattle - and joins Paul Molitor (1996) as the second Twins DH ever to win. He was also named the victor of the Hank Aaron Award; he received that trophy at the World Series.

Bregman, 25, hit.296 (164x554) with 37 doubles, 41 home runs, 112 RBI, five stolen bases and a 1.015 OPS (.423 OBP/.592 SLG) in 156 games for the Astros this season.

Three Astros players were recognized on Thursday when Louisville Sluggers announced the 2019 Silver Slugger Award winners, which honors the top offensive players at each position in each league.

Steinmeier said, however, that the historic event did not mark the "end of history" as USA historian Francis Fukuyama stated. German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier will maintain a speech.

Former LSU infielders Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros and DJ LeMahieu of the New York Yankees have been named winners of the 2019 Silver Slugger Award.

In earning Silver Slugger honors, Realmuto is the first Phillies player to do so since second baseman Chase Utley in 2009, according to The Inquirer's Scott Lauber, who adds the only other Phillies catcher to win was Darren Daulton in 1992.

He won his second consecutive batting title after hitting.329, while also leading the NL with a.429 on-base percentage and.671 slugging percentage.
