Asdrubal Cabrera Lone Cleveland Indians Player To Win 2011 Silver Slugger Award

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.
