Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill won the National League Silver Slugger Award for second base on Thursday.

The award, which is voted on by coaches and managers, honors the best hitting players at each position. Hill finished second among qualified NL second basemen with a .302 batting average. He led all NL second baseman with 26 home runs and 85 RBI. His .882 OPS was more than 100 points higher than the next highest second baseman in the National League.

The Silver Slugger is the second of Hill's career. He won the American League Silver Slugger Award for second baseman in 2009 while playing for the Toronto Blue Jays. Hill's award is the fifth time a Diamondback has won a Silver Slugger. Justin Upton and Daniel Hudson last season. Micah Owings in 2007 and Luis Gonzalez in 2001 are the only other Diamondbacks to win a Silver Slugger in the franchise's brief history.
