Player Profile: Manny Banuelos

I have two cards of Manny Banuelos. This one is from 2011 Bowman Chrome Prospects.

Playing career: Manny Banuelos began his career in the Yankees organization in 2008, and in five minor league seasons is 19-19 with a 3.13 ERA, striking out 375 batters in 368 innings.

Where he is now: Going to miss all of 2013 after Tommy John surgery.

My memories: A highly touted Yankee prospect, it feels like we’ve been hearing about him for a long time, and now he has had a major injury which makes him feel like a bust. Still, he’s only 21.

Google Autocomplete results: He is sixth when you type Manny, between Manny’s on Second, a sports bar on the Upper East Side, and Manny Perez, an actor. There do not appear to be any other prominent Manny Banueloses.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Marc Barcelo.
