Braves pitcher Tim Hudson was honored as the National League’s comeback player of the year by the Players Choice Awards. The veteran right-hander went 17-9 with a 2.83 ERA in 34 starts, after missing all but the final month of the 2009 season recovering from ligament-transplant elbow surgery.
Hudson also won the NL comeback player award from MLB.com earlier this month.
Texas Rangers designated hitter Vladimir Guerrero was the Players Choice winner for American League comeback player. He hit .300 with 29 homers and 115 RBIs for the Rangers, who’ll face San Francisco in the World Series beginning Wednesday.
