Michael Brantley 2018 American League Comeback Player
Hear from Michael Brantley on being voted the 2018 American League Comeback Player:
Brantley’s great 2018 season wasn’t quite the best of his 10 in the majors, but it was among the most satisfying. After a 2015 shoulder injury required surgery and caused him to miss all but 11 games in 2016, then suffering a severe ankle injury in August 2017 that kept him out of the lineup for much of the second half, he played 143 games and slashed .309/.364/.468 with 17 home runs and 36 doubles this season. The 31-year-old Brantley was also selected for the All-Star Game for the third time in his career. Pitchers David Price and Edwin Jackson came in second and third.
