Red Sox: J.D. Martinez wins two Silver Slugger Awards

Sox Championship Parade

Sox Championship Parade

This marked his second career Silver Slugger award.

The 31-year-old Red Sox star became the first player ever to win a Silver Slugger at two different positions in the same year Thursday.

Betts, Martinez and the Red Sox claimed baseball's ultimate prize by winning the 2018 World Series, but adding a little extra hardware never hurts.

Abreu became the first player in White Sox history to hit 20 or more home runs in each of his first five seasons, and he joined Albert Pujols (2001-'10) and Ted Williams (1939-'42, 1946-49) as the only players in Major League Baseball history to produce 30 or more doubles and 20 or more plus home runs in each of his first five seasons. Named the 2018 Hank Aaron Award victor for the AL as the league's top offensive performer, Martinez was the only player in the junior circuit to hit at least.300 with 100 RBI and 100 runs scored. As an outfielder, he hit.384 with 16 home runs, 51 RBI, and a 1.130 OPS.

Among AL second baseman, Altuve ranked first in batting average, OBP and slugging, while ranking second in hits and runs scored (84) and third in stolen bases. With several more seasons of team control, it seems more and more every day like the Red Sox truly have a bargain on their hands with J.D. Martinez. It's also worth noting that the Silver Slugger does not differentiate between outfield positions. He is the seventh Red Sox player to win the award in multiple years, joining David Ortiz (7), Wade Boggs (6), Manny Ramirez (6), Xander Bogaerts (2), Dwight Evans (2), and Jim Rice (2).
