24-year old lefty starting pitcher Sean Manaea came into this season as the Oakland A’s #2 prospect according to Baseball America. He started out his rookie season getting welcomed to the Major Leagues rudely by opposing hitters. But he has made some adjustments and he has pitched really well since June 1st. Manaea has pitched in 9 games (8 starts) since June 1st for the A’s and he is 2-2 with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He has now pitched in 15 games (14 starts) for the A’s overall this year and he is 3-5 with a 4.57 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP> He has given up 92 hits and 20 walks while whiffing 75 batters in his first 86 2/3 innings of his Major League career. The A’s hope that Manaea continues to improve the rest of the way in 2016.
