NEW YORK -- World Series MVP David Ortiz has won his sixth Silver Slugger award as the top designated hitter in voting by major league managers and coaches. Jurrell Casey Jersey . Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer each were selected for the fifth time. Silver Slugger awards are given to the top offensive player at each position in the American and National Leagues. They were handed out Wednesday night on the MLB Network. Nine of the 18 recipients were first-time winners with major league home run and RBI leader Chris Davis of Baltimore taking home a bat-shaped trophy as the best AL first baseman. The Orioles led all teams with three winners: Outfielder Adam Jones and shortstop J.J. Hardy joined Davis in being picked for the first time. Pittsburgh, Detroit and St. Louis each had two winners. First-time selectee Pedro Alvarez (third base) was joined by Pirates teammate Andrew McCutchen. The star outfielder won his second prize. St. Louis Yadier Molina (catcher) and Matt Carpenter (second base) received their first Silver Sluggers. The Tigers Torii Hunter (outfield) got his second. Washingtons Ian Desmond (shortstop), Cincinnatis Jay Bruce (outfield) and the Angels Mike Trout (outfield) each earned their second straight Silver Slugger. Other first-time winners were: Arizonas Paul Goldschmidt (first base), Colorados Michael Cuddyer (outfield) and the Dodgers Zack Greinke (pitcher). Several players earned bonuses or salary escalators for winning the award: Cabrera, Hunter and Ortiz each get $100,000 bonuses, while Hardy receives $75,000 and Bruce, Cuddyer, Davis and Molina earn $50,000 apiece. Jones base salary next year escalates by $200,000 to $10.2 million and Cuddyers rises by $500,000 to $11.5 million. Erik Walden Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me.

Top-seeded Djokovic, who is making only his second appearance this year after reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open, was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over 54th-ranked Istomin of Uzbekistan. "It wasnt as easy as the scoreline indicates," said Djokovic, who has won in Dubai on four occasions.RENTON, Wash. - The conversations started in the spring and as much as K.J. Wright wanted to believe the Seattle Seahawks legitimately wanted to keep him around long-term, the fact the season started and weeks ticked by without a contract extension began weighing on the linebacker.The more the season goes on, its only human you start to think about am I going to be here, am I not? Wright said. I didnt try and let it affect me too much.The stress and worry about his future was alleviated on Thursday after Wright signed a four-year extension worth up to $27 million with the Seahawks, keeping one of Seattles key defensive players from reaching free agency.Wright was in the final year of his rookie contract and making $1.4 million in base salary. While the idea of seeing what he was worth on the open market was intriguing, he ultimately wanted to remain with the team that drafted him in the fourth round in 2011.Im not going to lie, it would have been nice to see what other teams thought of you, to see what your value was, Wright said. But I didnt want to go anywhere else. I love it here.Seattle has always valued the unique size and speed Wright has added to the linebacker unit. At 6-foot-4 and nearly 250 pounds, Wright has become a needed, versatile component since his arrival.Wright has started at all three linebacker positions for the Seahawks. The first game of his career in 2011, Wright started at middle linebacker. But Seattle has found the best spot for Wright is at weakside linebacker.For his career, Wright has started 54 of 58 games.Because hes around we have a lot of depth, Seattle linebackers coach Ken Norton Jr. said. And if youve been around the Seahawwks the last four years youve seen him grow into a really exciting player. Jonnu Smith Jersey. Hes done a lot of fantastic things and the great thing about him, hes only getting better. Every time he steps on the field hes only getting better.Wright is leading Seattle with 96 tackles this season, already a career-high, has two sacks and forced three fumbles. Hes started all 14 games, including three at middle linebacker when Bobby Wagner was out with a foot injury.Wright is also playing more than at any other point in his career. According to STATS, Wright has been on the field for 95.8 per cent of the defensive snaps this season, the highest total of his career.The timing of this signing gives us the ability to keep as many of our core players together as we possibly can, Seattle general manager John Schneider said in a statement. Since day one, K.J. has been a true professional in his daily approach.Wright is the latest of Seattles core group of drafted players to be given new contracts. Strong safety Kam Chancellor was first before the start of the 2013 season. All-Pros Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman, and wide receiver Doug Baldwin were all extended following Seattles title last season.Next on the agenda: quarterback Russell Wilson and Wagner, both of whom can be extended this off-season.We play so well together and get along so good, just have to keep these guys around, Wright said. It only makes sense to keep guys you drafted here to keep growing and developing as football players. Im glad they chose me to stick around and do nothing but be the best player on and off the field.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
