Asdrubal Cabrera didn't get the satisfaction of winning one of the league's Gold Glove awards earlier this week. The Cleveland Indians shortstop was able to win a different postseason award Wednesday night, however, as he was honored with a 2011 Silver Slugger.
Cabrera came into the season with just 18 career home runs, but he knocked 25 into the stands this season to set a new career high and win his first Silver Slugger. Aside from the home run numbers, the infielder posted a .273 batting average and .792 OPS while batting in 92 RBIs.
A fill list of this year's Silver Slugger award winners is included below.
