Royals' Eric Hosmer wins 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award

Daniel Murphy named National League Silver Slugger

Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright has been named the 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award victor.

Lindor continued his meteoric improvement with career highs in nearly every offensive category, including a franchise-record 33 home runs from the shortstop position.

The 28-year-old set career highs in runs, hits, home runs, batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage in the 2017 season. Lindor set a single-season franchise record for home runs by a shortstop (33), which is also a Major League Baseball record by a switch-hitting shortstop.

Selected to his first All-Star game, Ramirez collected 186 hits, including 29 home runs, and scored 107 runs. This is Arenado's third consecutive Silver Slugger Award and the second consecutive award for Blackmon.

Ramirez tied a Major League Baseball record with five extra-base hits during a September 3 game at Detroit. It is given to the top offensive players at each position in the American and National Leagues.
