CLEVELAND (AP) -- Asdrubal Cabrera was shut out for gold, but got silver.
Cabrera became the first Cleveland shortstop to win a Silver Slugger Award on Wednesday, making up for the Gold Glove he was beaten out for by Los Angeles Angels shortstop Erick Aybar.
The Silver Slugger honors the top offensive player at each position in each league. It has been voted on by managers since 1980.
Cabrera had a breakout season in 2011, batting .273 with 32 doubles, three triples, 25 homers and 92 RBIs in 151 games. The All-Star led the Indians in runs (87), hits (165), RBIs and stolen bases (17).
The 25-year-old Cabrera set a single-season franchise record for homers by a shortstop, and his RBI total was the highest by a Cleveland shortstop since Lou Boudreau had 106 in 1948, when he was AL MVP.
