The Comeback Players of the Year have been named: Washington National and former Tiger Dmitri Young, and Tampa Bay Devil Ray and former Tiger Carlos Pena. Both players were awarded by the MLB.com corps of writers for their outstanding seasons, and perhaps also for their ability to put the nightmare that is playing for the Tigers behind them.
The articles don't mention how the voting went. Presumably the NL award did not go to Josh Hamilton at least in part because he was not a major leaguer before this season (hence there was no "comeback.") Fausto Carmona may have been thought of as an AL candidate, except that his "comeback" was really just from one bad week last year--he was pretty good to excellent in his non-closer outings last season, something that is easily forgotten.
