YearComment
2003 After his surprisingly successful 2001, Manzanillo found no one interested in him as a free agent, so he had to crawl back to the Pirates and sign a minor league deal (he couldn’t return to the Bucs until May 1). The last of Manzanillo’s nine lives appears to have expired in 2002, as the well-traveled righty reliever was released in August after missing the middle of the season recovering from surgery to remove bone chips in his right elbow. It’s possible he’ll get a look-see from another team in the spring, but a real stretch to believe he’ll make another comeback.
2002 Not only did Manzanillo not turn into a pumpkin, he improved his performance across the board, finally pitching the way he did in ’94 for the Mets and in Triple-A ever since. His 1999 elbow surgery brought new life to his late-breaking slider, and he kept it down all year, holding right-handed hitters to a .251 slugging percentage. He should open 2002 as the closer if the Pirates can re-sign him, and he is more proof that spending money on relievers is dumb.
2001 Josias Manzanillo was arguably the Bucs’ most effective reliever in 2000, logging a season not out of line with his best years with the Mets. He earned the minimum salary and didn’t even require a 40-man roster spot until the Pirates called him up. Yet teams routinely hand out million-dollar contracts to middle relievers. Why?
1998 Caused a collective wince all over the country. I remember watching “Baseball Tonight” and seeing Peter Gammons scrunch up his face in sympathetic pain, and I think that was the universal reaction. I know he’s got more fans as a result of that unfortunate line drive, and that’s a good thing. Manzanillo is a fun a pitcher to watch, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him bust out, even at his advanced age.
1996  A common theme among pitchers in this book is that they're one walk per nine innings away from being very good, or at least a lot better. Given that, don't you find it surprising that hitters don't get more credit for drawing walks? Has about two years left to find the strike zone a bit more than he has, or else he'll be battling for jobs in AAA. His arm motion always looks to me like it's going to cause him problems.
