Altuve Wins Fourth Straight Silver Slugger Award

After an incredible end to a story book season, Jose Altuve capped off the year with a Silver Slugger award. His fourth straight to be exact. Altuve has really come around as one of the top hitters in the entire game. Not a massive home run hitter, though, having only 24 home runs. However, It’s a solid number for a guy his size. He’s only 27 years old, and already an owner of 4 Silver Slugger awards, one gold glove and now a World Series ring. Who knows what else Jose Altuve has in store for us in the future.

 

Silver Slugger Award

The Silver Slugger is an award that goes to the best hitter at a single position. Jose Altuve was not only the best hitting second baseman. He also might have been the best hitter in the league and is going to be for a long time. Standing at just 5’6 and 165 lbs, there is a lot of power in such a little guy. Hitting an astounding .346 hitting 24 home runs and 81 RBIs, and his OBP placed 6th in the league at .410. He has also shown that he can hit for power, slugging for .547 which placed him at 17th best in the league.

There still may be another award for him by the time all the awards have been given out. That award is MVP. No one played better than Altuve in the A.L. and meant more to a team than him. Again at just 27 years old, this kid is surely making a name for himself as not only a top hitter in the league, but also as one of the top players in the MLB. So, however, the rest of his career plays out, and Jose Altuve is definitely deserving of every award he comes across.
