The Silver Slugger Award is a much smaller version of MLB’s Gold Glove. While the Gold Glove has been awarded to the best defensive player at each position in both leagues since 1957, the Silver Slugger has been awarded to the best hitter at each position in each league since the 1980s.

Silver sluggers are still voted on by managers and coaches, so unfortunately you can’t blame the media for any mistakes. Note that, like all awards, these are regular season awards. Not only does the postseason not count, but it was impossible to include because all ballots must be turned in before the playoffs begin.

The Silver Sluggers personal record is 12 (Barry Bonds, LF) followed by Mike Piazza (10, catcher) Alex Rodriguez (seven at shortstop and three at third base) and Barry Larkin (nine, shortstop).

Here are the 2022 winners in each player’s career Silver Slugger bracket.
