RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Manaea was the Royals's second pick (34th overall) in the 2013 draft out of Indiana State University. Many experts originally suggested Manaea could have been a No. 1 overall pick, but the immediate need for hip surgery, a problem that developed from overcompensating for an ankle injury during his delivery, saw him drop down many teams' draft boards. The 6-foot-5, 235 pound lefty has a solid three-pitch arsenal with a fastball clocked as high as 96 mph, and after successful surgery and rehab, is expected to be ready for spring training. He is expected to open the year either in Low-A Lexington or High-A Wilmington. Depending on his progress, he could be on the fast-track towards the major leagues, but not likely until 2015 or 2016. Dynasty league owners will want to keep him on their radar as he does project to be a solid middle-of-the-rotation starter down the road.
