In earning Silver Slugger honors, Realmuto is the first Phillies player to do so since second baseman Chase Utley in 2009, according to The Inquirer's Scott Lauber, who adds the only other Phillies catcher to win was Darren Daulton in 1992.

The selections for the Silver Slugger are based on a combination of offensive statistics, including batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage, as well as the managers' and coaches' general impressions of a player's overall offensive value. The accounting firm of Mountjoy Chilton Medley LLP verified the tabulation of balloting.
