Mike Trout is having quite the week.

One day after learning he was again in the top three of the American League MVP award voting, the 22-year-old phenom earned his second consecutive Silver Slugger award in results revealed on Wednesday.

With the win, Trout became the first player in the 33-year history of the award to score wins in his first two seasons. The Angels' outfielder hit .323 with 27 home runs and 97 RBI in 157 games played.

Trout also led the AL in runs scored (109) and walks (110) despite being shuffled through the top third of the batting order because of injuries to Peter Bourjos and Albert Pujols.

On Tuesday, Trout was also revealed as a finalist for the league's top honor, along with the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera and the Orioles' Chris Davis.

However, despite being a finalist for the award, it has been widely expected that Cabrera and Davis will finish 1-2 in the BBWAA voting, Cabrera after leading the Tigers to the AL Central title and Davis for his breakout power season and keeping the Orioles in contention for a playoff spot until the final week of the year.
