Francisco Liriano Newsbeat
Tuesday, November 05, 2013
Nice to see Rivera finally get some recognition.
Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano posted his best season since 2006, one year after notching a 5.34 ERA, and was named the National League Comeback Player of the Year on Monday, becoming the first player to win the award twice.
In the American League, Mariano Rivera completed the turnaround from a torn ACL in 2012 to save 44 games, a new record for a closer in his final season. The 43-year-old right-hander went 6-2 with a 2.11 ERA, 54 strikeouts and nine walks.
The Comeback Player of the Year Awards are presented annually to one player in each league who has re-emerged on the field during the season. The 30 club beat reporters from MLB.com selected the winners from an original list of 30 candidates (one per MLB club). The winners were revealed Monday night on ESPN2…
Both pitchers also won the Players Choice Award for Comeback Player in their respective leagues.
