Royals' Eric Hosmer wins 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award

According to a news release from the Royals, Hosmer is the 10th Royal to earn the Silver Slugger honor and only the second first baseman, joining George Brett.

The Silver Slugger Awards are given to one player at each position in both leagues.

Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon have been named 2017 Silver Slugger Award winners, as announced this evening by Louisville Slugger® and MLB Network. The extra-base hits are second-most by a switch hitter in Major League Baseball history, trailing just Lance Berkman's 94 in 2001. The 23-year-old ranked 3rd in baseball in extra base hits (81), 4th in doubles and total bases, 7th in hits and 9th in runs.

Altuve won his third-career and second-consecutive batting title this season and helped lead Houston to its first World Series title in franchise history. He missed time during the regular season with an elbow injury and later, during the National League Championship Series, a back injury. Altuve and Springer are the first pair of Astros to win the award since 1999, the team announced.

Altuve has already taken home several awards this season, most recently the Players Choice Awards' MLB Player of the Year and AL Most Outstanding Player, which he won Wednesday.
