Dear Mr. Cano and Mr. Kemp,
We know this is stupid. We get it.
Surprises are aplenty in the first month and a half of the season. The Orioles and Nationals find themselves at the top of their divisions, while the Red Sox and Angels are freezing down in the cellar. Edwin Encarnacion has 11 more home runs than Albert Pujols. Lance Lynn has the most wins in the National League.
On top of all that, a bunch of guys are having rebound years after struggling in 2011. These comeback players all experienced plenty of success in previous years, but the last campaign did not go very well. For them, 2012 has been a re-invigoration of sorts, and it has been a welcome change.
Without further ado, let’s get to this week’s Top 5 of the biggest comeback players of the year so far.
