Francisco Liriano was named the National League Comeback Player of the Year tonight, beating out Jorge De La Rosa, Chase Utley, and Jayson Werth. This is not to be confused with the Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year award, which also went to Liriano a few weeks ago. The obvious difference is that this award is presented by MLB, while the other is presented by The Sporting News.

This is the second time that Liriano has won a Comeback Player of the Year award presented by MLB. The other time was the 2010 season with the Minnesota Twins. He becomes the first player to ever win the award twice. There’s not much else to say about this award that wasn’t said during The Sporting News version, so click the link above for further analysis on Liriano’s season.

Liriano was also named the Comeback Player of the Year in the Player’s Choice awards. Basically, a lot of people feel that Liriano was the Comeback Player of the Year.
