Moustakas named AL Comeback Player of the Year

Moustakas named AL Comeback Player of the Year

Greg Holland's remarkable return to the mound was rewarded with official recognition Friday.

Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas has been named the American League Comeback Player of the Year, Major League Baseball announced today on MLB Network's MLB Now show. The 32-year-old right-hander, who signed with the Rockies as a free agent, notched 41 saves, tied with Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen for the most in the NL. The Rockies have expressed interest in bringing him back, but there are no guarantees that will happen with Holland on the market.

In his first year with the Rockies, Holland was a big part of Colorado's first postseason appearance since 2009.

The 41 saves also tied Colorado's single-season record originally set by Jose Jimenez in 2002. He finished the year with a 3.61 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 57 1/3 innings.

Holland and Moustakas played together with the Royals from 2011-2015 before Holland was diagnosed with a "significant tear" in his right ulnar collateral ligament close to the end of the 2015 season. He ended up converting saves in 22 consecutive opportunities, a streak that ran into the month of June before he blew his first save chance against the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field on June 15.

Moustakas, who was limited to 26 games in 2016 after tearing his ACL, came back to hit.272 with 38 home runs, 85 RBI and 75 runs scored over 148 games while posting a.521 slugging percentage.

Moustakas, 29, and a free agent for the first time, made history in 2017, clubbing 38 homers and breaking the franchise record of 36 set by Steve Balboni in 1985.
