Angels center fielder Mike Trout on Thursday became just the second player in history to win the Silver Slugger Award his first four full big-league seasons. Mike Piazza is the other.
The award, given out annually since 1980, represents the best offensive player at each position in the American and National leagues.
Trout in 2015 batted .299 with 41 home runs, 90 RBIs, 104 runs, 32 doubles and six triples. He set career highs in home runs, slugging percentage (.590) and OPS (.991), leading the American League in the latter two categories.
