Manship had spent parts of four seasons from 2009 through 2012 with the Twins and 2013 with the Colorado Rockies, compiling a 6.42 Major League ERA in 116.1 IP across 52 appearances, which included 10 starts.

Manship relies on a fastball, curveball, and change-up combination, with a below-average fastball that sits near 90 MPH according to FanGraphs.
