Liriano wins NL Comeback Player of the Year Award


Francisco Liriano lost a lot of money by breaking his arm while trying to scare his kids this winter.

But every cloud has its silver lining, and Liriano found that out once again, winning the National League Comeback Player of the Year Award late last night.

Liriano, who returned to the field May 11 from the injury, went on to win 16 games, helping Pittsburgh break a 21-year streak of losing seasons and make the playoffs.

Here's what Liriano said of winning the award, chosen by the players.

It's the second time Liriano has won the Comeback Player of the Year Award, winning the American League version in 2010 with the Minnesota Twins.

Here are some of Liriano's finer moments from his 2013 season that was.
