Fantasy Impact:

The 23-year-old was roughly considered a consensus top-40 prospect entering 2021, but he has had a rough go of it at Triple-A this season. Manning has posted an 8.07 ERA and a 1.55 WHIP through seven starts. Detroit has done a good job of developing young starters in the majors thus far (see: Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal) but ultimately a wait-and-see approach is advised for redraft leagues.
