Houston Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker has won his first career American League Silver Slugger Award.
The 26-year-old right fielder led the American League with a career-high 112 RBI and batted .284 with 97 runs scored, 37 doubles, 29 home runs, 30 stolen bases, 80 walks and a .886 OPS in 157 games.
Tucker was one of three AL players with at least 29 home runs and 29 stolen bases. Tucker ranked first in OPS, first in walks, fourth in home runs and tied for fourth in doubles among AL outfielders.
Tucker was also selected to his second consecutive All-Star Game this season. He was the third player in Astros history to lead their league in RBI, along with OF Lance Berkman (128 RBI in 2002) and IF Jeff Bagwell (116 RBI in 1994).
