Former Rakuten Eagle Casey McGehee was named the National League Comeback Player of the Year by Sporting News Baseball. From MLB.com's Adam McCalvy:

... 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.

... "When I went over [to Japan] I wasn't necessarily thinking about coming back," he said in September. "I had it in my mind that this is where it was going to be. I had to come to terms with that. When I found out I had a chance to come back, it meant a lot to me. There have been a lot of guys that have went over there and had success that haven't been able to come back, for whatever reason. I knew the chances of that happening weren't very good to begin with. I guess I'm proud of being able to say I went there and was able to come back."
