The Sporting News has been releasing their 2013 season awards this week, and the Pittsburgh Pirates have been doing great. They had the top three players in the NL Comeback Player of the Year race, with Francisco Liriano winning the award. Clint Hurdle took home the NL Manager of the Year Award.

Today the awards continue, as Andrew McCutchen was named to the Sporting News NL All-Star team. Not only was McCutchen named to the team, but he was an “overwhelming choice”. McCutchen was one of three players who got that distinction, along with Yadier Molina and Clayton Kershaw. The selections were made by a panel of 14 NL General Managers and Assistant General Managers. The team is below.
