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.

“He doesn’t pop your eyes out, but he gets people out,” Baker said. “That’s what it’s all about.”

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.
