Nelson Cruz won his second Silver Slugger for hitting 39 homers as the Mariners' DH last season.
The other AL winners were C Gary Sanchez, 1B Eric Hosmer, 2B Jose Altuve, 3B Jose Ramirez, SS Francisco Lindor, OF Aaron Judge, OF Justin Upton and OF George Springer. Springer over Mike Trout was a lousy call, given that the latter had 190 points of OPS on the former in just 26 fewer games. The other controversy was Hosmer over Jose Abreu at first base. Abreu had only a slight edge according to advanced numbers, but considering that Silver Slugger usually defaults to the RBI guys, it's surprising that Abreu's 102-94 win there didn't make him the choice.
