The accolades for Chris Davis continue. Davis is the Orioles’ nominee for the Hank Aaron award.

The award, established in 1999, is to recognize the most outstanding offensive performer in each league.

Davis, who set a club record with 53 home runs, and had 138 RBIs and 42 doubles. He was one of just three players in major league history with at least 50 home runs and 40 doubles.

Fans can vote between now and Friday and mlb.com and orioles.com for the award. The winners will be announced during the World Series.

Aaron, two former Orioles, Roberto Alomar and Eddie Murray lead a panel of Hall of Famers who will also vote for the award. Johnny Bench, Tony Gwynn, Paul Molitor and Robin Yount are also on the panel.

No Oriole has won the award.
