Cano wins Silver Slugger Award


Having already received his first career Gold Glove earlier this week, Robbie Cano added some more hardware to his mantle today, taking home his second career Silver Slugger Award. He also earned the honors in 2006, his first full season in the big leagues. Cano hit .319/.381/.534 this season, leading all second baseman in hits (200), RBI (109), wOBA (.389), and fWAR (6.4) in addition to OBP and SLG. He set career highs with 29 homers and an 8.2% walk rate. Congrats Robbie, this one was well deserved.

  1. I think Robbie fully established himself as the best second baseman in baseball this season.

  2. Accent Shallow says:

    That walk rate is a tad inflated by IBB (14/57 walks were intentional), but whatever.

    Robbie is just so good.

  3. Andrew Brotherton says:

    I think he deserves the MVP. Deserved Gold glove at 2nd, silver slugger, catalyst for the team with the second best record in the league. I understand the argument with Josh Hamilton but how can you deny the facts that Robbie carried the Yankees with his hitting, and was clearly the best infielder in baseball this year.
