Even more hardware for J.T. Realmuto. A week after winning the Gold Glove award, Realmuto on Thursday was named the NL's Silver Slugger recipient among catchers.
Realmuto beat out Brewers catcher Yasmani Grandal, who hit .246/.380/.468 with 28 homers and 77 RBI. Realmuto himself hit .275/.325/.493 with 25 homers and 83 RBI. Comparable offensive seasons aside from OBP.
The big difference in their seasons is that Grandal had a furious start to the season, whereas Realmuto didn't start clicking until right around the All-Star break. After a slightly disappointing first half, Realmuto still ended up setting career-highs in slugging, homers, RBI, doubles, runs and walks.
It is Realmuto's second straight Silver Slugger award.
