Peralta earns first career Silver Slugger Award, Goldschmidt wins fourth

The Arizona Diamondbacks keep racking up awards this offseason.

After two Gold Glove winners were crowned on Sunday, Arizona showed its power at the plate with two Silver Slugger winners in David Peralta and Paul Goldschmidt.

Outfielder David Peralta took home his first career Silver Slugger Award.

The 31-year-old hit .293 with 30 home runs and 87 RBIs.

He was tied for third in MLB in game-winning RBI (14), 10th in slugging (.516) and 13th in OPS (.868). He set career marks in homers, RBIs and hits this season and had three multi-homer games.

Joining Peralta as a Silver Slugger is Goldschmidt.

The first baseman has now won the award four times, including back-to-back wins in 2017 and 2018.

With the win, Goldschmidt ties Todd Helton and Albert Pujols for the most Silver Slugger Awards since its inception in 1980.

After having a bit of a slow start, Goldy turned it on in the second half of the season.

He averaged .290 with 33 homers and 83 RBIs.

Goldschmidt was third in MLB in OPS (.922) and times on base (268), sixth in OBP (.389) and extra-base hits (73) and tied for fifth in game-winning RBIs (13).

Aaron Hill (2012), Daniel Hudson (2011), Justin Upton (2011), Micah Owings (2007) and Luis Gonzalez (2001) are the other winners in franchise history.

It is the second time in D-backs history that the team had multiple Silver Slugger winners. Justin Upton and Daniel Hudson won the awards back in 2011.

Arizona’s had a pretty good week.

On Sunday, Nick Ahmed and Zack Greinke took home Gold Gloves for their defensive efforts over the season.

Ahmed earned his first Gold Glove, while Greinke took home his fifth straight.

But that’s not all.

As a team, the D-backs earned the Wilson Defensive Team of the Year honors on Wednesday.

Greinke once again found himself holding up the hardware as he also took home the Defensive Player of the Year Award for pitchers.
