Silver Slugger Award lands Astros' Altuve in exclusive company all-time

Earlier this week, it was announced that Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was the recipient of a Silver Slugger Award - his second consecutive season taking home the honor.

In 2015, Altuve had another phenomenal season for the Astros, hitting .313/.353/.459 with a career-high 15 home runs and 66 RBI, 38 stolen bases and 200 hits en route to his third All-Star appearance and first career Gold Glove Award.
