FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: SEAN MANAEA SP OAKLAND A'S

For the fourth time over the last week-and-a-half, a Major League Baseball outfit promoted a top pitching prospect, this time being the Oakland A's tabbing 24-year-old lefty Sean Manaea.  The A's plan on Manaea to make his debut Friday night versus the Houston Astros and this is yet another actionable move in almost all fantasy baseball leagues due to the ability the kid brings.  The main return in the Ben Zobrist deal with the Kansas City Royals at last season's trade deadline, Mananea has dominated in 2016 at Triple-A as he has posted a 1.50 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts in only 18 innings (3 starts).  Manaea certainly has some major juice being his arm as he has struck out a high number of batters throughout his minor league career.  2015 was no different at Double-A as Manaea posted a splendid 10.76 K/9 Rate in 42.2 innings while with Oakland and that part of the game will be his calling card right away like with Jose Berrios and Blake Snell.  Like those two, Manaea has some issues with control (3.36 BB/9 last season) but he keeps the baseball in the park which is key and lessens any danger the free passes could yield.  Pick up Manaea where available.

  1. Do you like Manaea more than Griffin or Porcello?

  2. Porcello is garbage. Griffin only a stream at home. Manaea a mystery but has big arm.
