The annual Silver Slugger Awards will be announced at 6 p.m. tonight on MLB Network, and the Orioles should be well represented. The awards are decided by a vote of major league managers and coaches, and lean heavily toward run-production numbers. Orioles first baseman Chris Davis might be an underdog for the American League Most Valuable Player Award, but it's safe to say he's a favorite to win a Silver Slugger at first base. He led the major leagues in 2013 in home runs (53)

The annual Silver Slugger awards are being announced tonight and while Orioles outfielder Adam Jones has a shot at winning the honor for the first time in his career, it looks like the Orioles will come away empty handed. Jones, who won his second career Gold Glove earlier this month and was named Most Valuable Oriole for the second straight season after a breakout 2012 campaign, figures to be a dark horse for the award. He ranks just 10th in the AL in home runs (32) and his .287 average, 87 RBIs and slugging percentage (.505)
