(ISN) – SEATTLE, Wash. – Seattle Mariners pitcher Chris Young was named MLB’s American League Comeback Player of the Year. The award is officially sanctioned by Major League Baseball and presented annually to one player in each League who has reemerged on the field during the season.

The 30 club beat reporters from MLB.com, the official web site of Major League Baseball, selected the winners from an original list of 30 candidates (one per MLB Club).

Young, 35, returned to the Majors for the first time since 2012 to go 12-9 with a 3.65 ERA (67 ER, 165.0 IP) in 30 games/29 starts with the Mariners. The 6-10 right-hander did not pitch in the Majors in 2013 after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder. From 2009-2012, Young made just 42 Major League starts battling various shoulder injuries.

The right-hander was also named the Sporting News American League Comeback Player of the Year on Oct. 20 and the Players Choice American League Comeback Player of the Year on Nov. 3.
