Astros second baseman Jose Altuve and designated hitter Yordan Alvarez are 2022 Silver Sluggers!
Each year, MLB managers and coaches cast their ballots for the players they believe to be the best offensive producers in each league. Factoring in a combination of offensive stats including OPS, home runs, hits, RBI, batting average and more, Altuve and Alvarez found themselves at the top of the polls for this year’s award presented by Louisville Slugger.
