Bomba Brothers! Congrats to Mitch Garver and Nelson Cruz on their #SilverSlugger Awards!
First pair of @Twins
teammates to win the award since Mauer (C) and Morneau (1B) in 2008. https://t.co/lQko8sitZr
The 2019 #MNTwins have produced two AL Silver Slugger Award winners.
Mitch Garver (31 HR, .995 OPS) won the first of his career. Nelson Cruz (41 HR, 1.031 OPS) won his third.
They are the first Twins to win the award since Joe Mauer in 2013.
Leaders in offense for catchers from Fangraphs:
1. Mitch Garver-24.0
2. Willson Contreras-14.9
The closest AL catcher is Tom Murphy with 10.5, if Garver doesn’t win the AL SS for catchers then the whole system should be shut down.
Highest single-season SLG in #MNTwins history, since move to Minnesota in 1961 (min. 350 PA):
* 1. 2019 Nelson Cruz — .639 *
* 2. 2019 Mitch Garver — .630 *
3. 1961 Harmon Killebrew — .606
4. 2009 Joe Mauer — .587
5. 1969 Harmon Killebrew — .584
Silver Sluggers well-earned.
