Mookie Betts and Mike Trout, seemingly the two best parts in baseball, were given Silver Slugger grants Thursday as the top hitters at their situations in their separate groups.
Betts was perceived for his hostile creation days after he was named a Gold Glove grant victor for his work in right field for the fifth time in his career. He is the 6th major part in Dodgers history to win the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger grants in a similar season.
It is Betts’ third consecutive Silver Slugger grant, fourth by and large, and first in the National League subsequent to batting .292 with a .927 on-base-in addition to slugging rate, 16 homers and 10 taken bases in 55 games.
He at that point featured in the postseason — on the bases, on protection, and with the bat — to enable the Dodgers to win the World Series while the Angels were avoided with regards to the competition for the 6th successive year notwithstanding another first class season from Trout.
Trout hit .281 with 17 homers and a .993 on-base-in addition to slugging rate in 53 games. He turned into the Angels’ record-breaking grand slam pioneer when he clubbed the 300th of his profession in August.
He is the primary player to win the honor multiple times before his age-29 season. He is the fifth player to actually win the honor multiple times in the American League and the third outfielder in either association to win multiple times, joining Barry Bonds and Manny Ramirez. The Angels, be that as it may, completed in fourth spot in the American League West at 26-34.
Trout wasn’t named a finalist for the AL MVP without precedent for a very long time and simply the second time in his nine full seasons. Betts is in the main three in the NL, and the victor will be reported Nov. 12.
