Three Boston Red Sox players headlined this year's Silver Slugger Awards, which were distributed Thursday to the best offensive players at every position in each league.
Winning from the Red Sox were first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and designated hitter David Ortiz, who won the award for the fifth time -- but first since 2007 -- after batting .309 with 29 home runs and 96 RBIs.
It was the first honor for both Gonzalez and Ellsbury.
It was Cano's third Silver Slugger and first for the others.
Winning for the first time were Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, Detroit Tigers catcher Alex Avila, Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips and Chicago Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez.
The Silver Slugger Awards are voted on by coaches and managers from both leagues, and voters can not reward players on their own team.
