Orioles' Trumbo honored by Sporting News

Baltimore Orioles outfielder and designated hitter Mark Trumbo has been named Sporting News' American League Comeback Player of the Year.

The 30-year-old led the Major Leagues with 47 home runs while helping the Orioles reach the AL Wild Card game. His 108 RBIs in 2016 topped his total of 64 while playing for the D-backs and Mariners in 2015.

Trumbo narrowly edged the Rangers' Ian Desmond for the award, receiving 40 votes to Desmond's 39.

Trumbo joins Boog Powell (1966) and Rick Sutcliffe ('92) as the only Orioles to ever win the award.
