Porcello Named 2016 AL Comeback Player Of The Year
Red Sox ace and 2016 Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello was named today as the American League 2016 Comeback Player Of The Year. The 27-year-old righty went 22-4 with a 3.15 ERA for The Carmine Hose this past season. Over the last eight seasons, Porcello is the only AL pitcher to start at least 27 games a year. In 2015, he was a disappointing 9-15 with a 4.92 ERA. The National League honor was nabbed by Anthony Rendon—the third-baseman of the Washington Nationals. Congratulations to Rick and Anthony!
