Ex-Twins watch: Jeff Manship

You probably know that only one former Twins player is active for the two World Series team, that being Cleveland reliever Jeff Manship.

Manship was a 16th round pick out of Notre Dame and spent parts of four seasons on the Twins roster (2009-2012), He never worked as many as 35 innings in any season for Minnesota, and his best ERA was 5.28. He was probably most noticed for a game he worked with his name misspelled on the back of his jersey. 

He then bounced through Colorado and Philadelphia without making an impact before landing with Cleveland.

And something has clicked for him with the Tribe. His 2015 ERA was an astounding 0.95 (39 innings). His ERA this year, a still-solid 3.12. His secondary numbers are full of red flags, and he's certainly not one of Terry Francona's high leverage arms, but his ERAs by team are ... interesting.

  • Minnesota: 6.20
  • Colorado: 7.04
  • Philadelphia: 6.65
  • Cleveland: 2.07

One of these is not like the others.
