One of the most coveted recruits in the 2003 high school class, Manship blew out his elbow in the summer before he arrived at Notre Dame. After he had Tommy John surgery in February 2004, the Fighting Irish eased him back in last year before turning him loose this spring. Though Jeff Samardzija has more spectacular stuff, Manship has been the Fighting Irish's most effective weekend starter. His curveball was his signature pitch before he got hurt, and while it's still an above-average offering, it's not as good as it once was. He has compensated by relying more on a fastball that usually runs from 89-92 mph. He also has improved his changeup and can mix in a slider when needed. He has good command and competes well. Scouts aren't as leery about his medical record as they are of his arm action, which they worry could lead to more elbow trouble down the road. As a draft-eligible sophomore, Manship has more leverage than most college prospects, but is willing to sign if he goes in the first three or four rounds. His brother Matt should be a senior draft out of Stanford.
