McGehee, Young take comeback awards
NEW YORK (AP) — Miami third baseman Casey McGehee and Seattle pitcher Chris Young have been selected as baseball’s comeback players of the year.
McGehee hit .287 with 29 doubles, four home runs, 76 RBIs to win the NL honor following a season in the Japan Pacific League.
The 35-year-old Young won the AL award after being limited to nine minor league starts in 2013 due to injuries. The right-hander was 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts and one relief appearance this year. He reached double digits in wins for the first time since 2006.
The awards were voted on by the 30 beat writers from MLB.com.
