Silver Slugger: Morneau and Mauer

The second set of awards has been announced and two more Twins players have won awards. This time, it is the Silver Slugger awards and Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer, both MVP candidates, that have won the awards.

For Morneau and Mauer these are their first Silver Slugger awards of their career. And their first of hopefully many awards this off-season. The other awards that a Twins player has won this season is the Gold Glove, which was won by Torii Hunter.
