The Pittsburgh Pirates announced their Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year awards today. Andrew Lambo was named the Player of the Year, while Tyler Glasnow was named the Pitcher of the Year. We came to the same conclusions with the Pirates Prospects Player and Pitcher of the year awards last week. The difference is that Lambo and Glasnow get an actual award from the Pirates, plus their name on a plaque at Pirate City.
I'd go over their accomplishments again, but you can read about both players and why they won our yearly awards here:
