Blue Jays: Six players named finalists for 2022 Silver Slugger Award
4 of 6
Matt Chapman – Third Base
In his first season with the Blue Jays, Matt Chapman proved that he was not only a good defender but can hit the ball hard as well.
Through 538 at-bats, Chapman authored a 115 OPS+ and finished second on the team with 27 home runs. While his .229 batting average isn’t the highest on the squad or in the AL, his 68 walks led the Blue Jays and helped increase his OBP (.324).
Chapman is in tough to win the Silver Slugger this year, which would be the first one of his career. He sits fourth in fWAR (4.1) and home runs, seventh in wRC+ (117), and ninth in OBP, competing against the likes of José Ramírez, Alex Bregman, and Rafael Devers for the honours.
