Francisco Liriano wins NL Comeback Player of the Year

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Francisco Liriano has won the NL Comeback Player of the Year award. It's actually the second time he's won a Comeback Player of the Year award, which tells you a lot of what you need to know about the way his career has gone. You can't win a Comeback Player of the Year award without a lost season preceding it. But let's not dwell on this from Liriano's perspective. Let's give the Pirates' front office a pat on the back for grabbing a high-upside player for very little, putting him in a context that gave him a good chance at success, and helping him harness his stuff. And they get to keep him next year, too!
