CHICAGO – Chicago White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn has been named the Players Choice American League Comeback Player of the Year.

The Players Choice Awards are presented by the Major League Baseball Players Association and voted on by players from each league. It is the second AL Comeback Player of the Year award this offseason for Dunn, who also was honored by The Sporting News last week.

The 32-year-old Dunn batted .204 with 41 home runs, 96 RBI, 105 walks and 87 runs scored in 151 games with the White Sox in 2012, increasing his totals in every category from 2011, when he hit .159  with 11 homers, 42 RBI, 36 runs scored and 75 walks in 122 games.

The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Dunn led the major leagues in walks this season.  His 41 homers tied for sixth-most in White Sox history and were the second-highest total by a Sox left-hander behind Jim Thome’s 42 in 1996.

Dunn recorded his 1,000th career RBI on Aug. 13 at Toronto and hit his 400th career home run on Aug. 18 at Kansas City.
