Schwarber, Realmuto win 2022 Silver Slugger Award
JT Realmuto and Kyle Schwarber have both won a Silver Slugger Award for the 2022 season.
JT’s 2022 got off to a rough start, hitting under .270 in the first three months, including a .225 average in June, one of the worst months of his career. JT struck out 60 times over April-June and was holding the Phillies’ offense back while being a consistent liability. in the Top 5 of the order.
And then a switch flipped when Bryce Harper went down.
JT Realmuto had the best month of his career in July, slashing .358/.423/.642 with 5 HRs, 17 RBIs, and 24 hits in 67 ABs. He would continue to dominate throughout the rest of the season, hitting .303 in August and .273. This is the third career Silver Slugger Award for the BCIB.
Kyle Schwarber was a backbone for the Phillies lineup in 2022, crushing 46 HRs and 94 RBIs in the regular season, primarily in the leadoff spot. Schwarber logged 100 runs, 126 hits, and a .504 slugging percentage in his first season with the Phillies.
It wasn’t just Schwarber’s play that influenced this team. The locker room finally had a true, experienced veteran voice in the clubhouse, and it did so much for the Phillies. This is Schwarber’s first career Silver Slugger Award after leading the National League in HRs in 2022.
