SP Matt Manning
Another guy we just touched on recently, Manning is so frustrating. He'll have stretched where he looks like the guy we all thought he would be, but then he'll go right back to getting shelled. He's wildly inconsistent.
The walks have come down a bit, but he still gives up way too much hard contact and makes way too many mistakes. His sequencing is still very questionable at times as well.
He's still 25, so it's too early to give up on him, but he has a career 4.86 ERA and 4.54 FIP in 40 career starts. He hasn't exactly lit things up so far.
Manning needs to have a good stretch to end the season. He's been in the big leagues far too long now to still be this inconsistent. Yes, he's had his fair share of injuries, but has more than a full season's worth of big league experience. It's time to see what he's made of.
