David Price Wins Comeback Player of the Year

David Price is the eighth Red Sox player to win the Comeback Player of the Year.  Price was injured for much of the 2017 season, making it into just 16 games (11 starts).  He was effective when he was on the field though, going 6-3 with a 3.38 ERA and 76 strikeouts in 74 innings.  Price was even used in relief during the postseason.  So this award is a little puzzling.  Price was healthy all season this year and for an extended stretch of time, he was the best pitcher in the Red Sox rotation.  His ERA this season was a little down (3.58), but Price pitched 176 innings and struck out 177 and finished with a 16-7 record.  Of course he was truly great in the postseason.  Price has redeemed himself in the eyes of Red Sox fans after his 2018 season.
