Phillies Sign Jeff Manship

The Phillies announced they've signed righty Jeff Manship to a minor league deal with an invitation to Major League spring training.

Manship, 29 in January, was drafted by the Twins in the 14th round in 2006 out of Notre Dame, signing an over-slot deal as a Tommy John survivor.  He tallied 85 2/3 innings with the Twins from 2009-12, posting a 6.20 ERA mostly as a reliever.  Several years ago, Baseball America suggested Manship's "average stuff and fringy command" would limit him to middle relief.  

For the Rockies in 2013, Manship posted a 7.04 ERA, 5.3 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, 1.76 HR/9, and 45.4% groundball rate in 30 2/3 innings.  He tallied another 104 frames in Triple-A.
