Trea Turner won the Silver Slugger Award in 2022 for the first time in his career. Turner, who’s been in the league since 2015, hit 21 home runs and set career-highs with 100 RBIs and 39 doubles, while finishing second in all of baseball with 194 hits (only trailing Freddie Freeman).
He was dominant at the plate all season long out of the leadoff, two and three spots in the Dodgers’ lineup, and was a big reason for their 111 win season.
Turner joined MLB Network during their Silver Slugger announcement show to talk about what winning the award meant to him.
“It means a lot,” Turner said. “To win this award means you had to compete every day, so, for me, this just means I competed. I was out there as much as I could be. And tried to put it all together as much as I could each and every day. I think at the end of the year, if you can do that then the stats are pretty good. And it’s been cool to receive this award. And I appreciate it and I know my mom’s happy.”
