Martinez becoming the first player ever to win two of them in the same year. Betts and Martinez both won as outfielders, with Martinez also winning the designated hitter category. No player had ever won two Silver Sluggers in the same season in the award's 39-year history. The award marked the second of Betts' career, as he also won in 2016. Martinez's pair gave him three for his career, as he also won back in 2015. Martinez was also named the A.L. Hank Aaron Award winner as the best hitter in the league last month. Betts won his third career Gold Glove last week and is a finalist (and likely favorite) for A.L. MVP, which is announced next Thursday. The Red Sox tied the Rockies for most honorees with three, marking the fourth time in team history the team has taken home three Silver Sluggers in a single season (2005, 2011, 2016). Boston has been represented on the Silver Slugger team in 15 of the last 18 seasons.
