Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee has a trophy to go with his trove of frequent flier miles after he was named the National League Comeback Player of the Year by Sporting News on Monday.
McGehee's comeback was more literal than most, as he played in Japan in 2013 before returning to Major League Baseball on a one-year deal with the Marlins, for whom he proved a capable run-producer and lineup-stabilizer. Making the most of a career-high 160 games played, McGehee batted .287 with four home runs, 76 RBIs, 29 doubles and 177 hits -- the National League's fourth-highest hit total.
