Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright has been named the 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award victor. Only Edgar, who was 37 when he collected a league-leading 145 RBI for the Mariners in 2000, has been older when leading the AL outright in RBI.
Cruz led the Mariners in games, runs, home runs, RBIs, walks, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS and extra-base hits. He set career-bests in RBI, walks and on-base percentage.
While Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and Anthony Rendon made compelling cases at their positions, Blackmon, Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna beat out Harper in the outfield, while Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado took home the awards at first and third. He is one of 10 in club history with multiple 100-RBI seasons.
