Carpenter wins NL Comeback Player of the Year

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Chris Carpenter has been voted NL comeback player of the year.

Limited to four starts over the prior two seasons because of elbow surgery and a shoulder injury, Carpenter was 17-4 with a league-leading 2.24 ERA for the St. Louis Cardinals. The 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner, Carpenter won 11 consecutive decisions from early July to early September.
