Fernando Tatis made a nice contribution to the cause before his season-ending shoulder injury in September, and his fellow players noticed. Tatis was just named as the NL’s top comeback player in a vote by his peers that was done in September. This is one of the 2008 Players Choice Awards, and it was announced by the Major League Players Trust and Yahoo! Sports.
Cliff Lee from the Indians won the AL award. Tatis, who was out of baseball in 2004 and ’05, hit .297 with 11 homers and 47 RBI in 92 games. He hit 21 homers for Triple-A New Orleans in 2007.
