Nick Markakis won his first Silver Slugger Award Thursday to cap a terrific 2018 campaign. "MLB coaches and managers vote each season for the players they feel are the top offensive producers at each position in the field in the American League and National League. Voters base their selections on a combination of offensive statistics, including batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage, as well as their general impressions of a player's overall offensive value. Managers and coaches are not allowed to vote for players on their own team."
