    Judge and Sanchez win Silver Slugger Awards

    Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez were named yesterday as Silver Slugger award winners along with 16 other ML'ers. Judge and Sanchez set a ML record for most HR's by two teammates in their rookie year.

    It seems kind of weird to me that Judge was a rookie this year. How many plate appearances was he under the threshold? He must have been fairly close, no?

    I actually posted this news two days ago in their respective threads in Player Perforance Threads. Are awards for performance Out of Play?

    If you mean his 2016 season, he had 95 plate appearances and 84 at bats in 27 games. (He was injured for the last couple of weeks of the season.) He's still only appeared in 162 games, 2016-2017.

    Sanchez, on the other hand, had 229 PAs/201 ABs in 53 games in 2016 (plus 2/2/2 in 2015). But because he was injured at the beginning of this year he's still only appeared in a little over one full year's worth of games in his career: 177 (obviously a catcher would never play 162 games, but still).

    Determining rookie status:
    A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (b) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list).

    As an aside, why does MLB count at bats rather than plate appearances when measuring rookie status?
