BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 Manuel's reliance on deception caught up to him when he reached Triple-A, and the righty who twirled a 6.1 strikeout-walk ratio at Double-A three years ago barely managed a strikeout rate higher than that between Pawtucket and Boston. Manuel's arsenal includes a mid-80s fastball paired with a slow slider that just avoids being slapped with a "disco" designation because it's stuck in the 70s. That pitch will never cross over from white polyester pants to New Wave, making Manuel a replacement-level reliever, something Boston required more often than is healthy in 2010.
2010 Acquired from the Reds for Wladimir Balentien, Robert Manuel is a trick-pitch righty who depends far more on deception and movement than stuff; already lost to the Red Sox on a November waiver claim.
2009 A stringy Texan control pitcher with mediocre stuff, Robert Manuel pitched his way onto the 40-man with an insanely good 103/12 K/UBB ratio last year; win that many battles at home plate, and maybe his fly-ball tendencies will be survivable in the Gap.
