Here at Twins Daily, we have done a number of Q&As this offseason with current and future Twins players. Today, we present something different. We have a Q&A with a Twins player of recent past. Jeff Manship was the Twins 14th round draft pick in 2006 out of Notre Dame. Three years later, at the age of 24, he made his big league debut with a scoreless innings against Cleveland in August of 2009. Today, we catch up with former Twins pitcher Jeff Manship who found success in Cleveland’s bullpen in 2015.
Going into the final weekend of the 2009 season, the Twins needed to sweep Kansas City at home. One of those games was started by Manship. He pitched into the 6th inning for the first time in his short career and recorded his first MLB Win.
