Major League Baseball announced Friday that Colorado Rockies closer Greg Holland and Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas have won the 2017 Comeback Player of the Year Awards in the National League and American League, respectively. Holland missed all of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery, while Moustakas appeared in only 27 games during the 2016 season due to a torn ACL. The 2017 season was Holland's first with the Rockies after he spent the first six seasons of his MLB career with the Royals. Holland went 3-6 and converted 41 of 45 save opportunities to go along with a 3.61 ERA and 70 strikeouts in 57.1 innings pitched.
