AL COMEBACK PLAYER

HUNTER PENCE

After struggling in his final season with the Giants, Hunter Pence played winter ball in the Dominican Republic, signed a minor-league contract with the Texas Rangers and proceeded to rejuvenate his career. The 13-year veteran hit 18 home runs with 59 RBIs and a .297 batting average over 83 games. The 36-year-old Forth Worth, Texas native was voted as the starting DH in his first All-Star game since 2014. Lucas Giolito and Jorge Soler were the runners up.

Through the Players Trust, Pence will receive a $20,000 grant to direct to charities of his choice.
