Mariners right-hander Chris Young, who recently became a free agent, completed his sweep of the major awards that recognize a comeback player of the year in each league.
Young won Major League Baseball’s officially sanctioned American League award Friday after previously gaining recognition from his peers with a Players Choice Award and The Sporting News.
Miami third baseman Casey McGehee was the National League recipient.
MLB determines its award through a vote of MLB.com’s 30 beat writers, who choose a winner from a list of one nominee from each club.
All three groups chose Young, 35, after he resurrected his career by going 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA for the Mariners. He underwent three shoulder surgeries in recent years and pitched just 37 innings in 2013.
