Matt Harvey Named NL Comeback Player of the Year

Matt Harvey has been named the National League Comeback Player of the Year.

Harvey was back in form after missing all of 2014 recovering from Tommy John surgery. In 29 starts he went 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA. He had 188 strikeouts with just 37 walks in 189.1 regular season innings. He added another 26.2 innings in the post-season, blowing that 180 innings limit out of the water.

Matt Harvey redeemed himself in the eyes of Mets fans with his post-season performance. Of course, he probably should not have argued himself back into Game 5 of the World Series. But from a guy who at first seemed tentative to eclipse 180 innings, it was a nice thing to see.
