From this AM’s Enquirer:
Manuel got his first call-up to the big leagues Tuesday. Infielder Drew Sutton was optioned to Louisville to open a spot for Manuel.
Manuel, a right-hander who turns 26 Thursday, came to the Reds in the Dave Williams trade with the New York Mets. He was 3-3 with a 2.51 ERA at Louisville.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pop your eyes out, but he gets people out,Ã¢â‚¬Â Baker said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all about.Ã¢â‚¬Â
I would think this had more to do with giving up 30 plus runs in two nights than anything else, but nevertheless…congrats to Robert Manuel.
