Cabrera, Fielder win Silver Slugger Awards
Tigers sluggers Miguel Cabrera (third base) and Prince Fielder (first) won American League Silver Slugger Awards for their respective positions, it was announced Thursday night.
For Fielder, it’s the third time he’s been honored in his career, and his first in the AL.
For Cabrera, it’s the fourth time he’s won a Silver Slugger, second time as a third baseman (2006, Marlins). He also won one as an outfielder in 2005.
While Cabrera is the first Tigers third baseman to win a Silver Slugger since Dean Palmer in 1999, Fielder is the first Tigers first baseman to win one since ... well, Miggy in 2010.
