Chase Utley won his fourth Silver Slugger Award. Players, coaches, and managers selected Utley as the best hitting second baseman in the National League.

Utley finished the year with a .282 batting average, .397 on-base percentage, and .508 slugging percentage. Utley hit 31 home runs and drove in 93 runs.

Pablo Sandoval gets snubbed again! First, he's left off the All Star game roster, now he misses out on a silver slugger. Kung Fu Panda had hit .330 with 25 homers and had a .943 OPS. Zimmerman had a .888 OPS.
