Any more news on Mantei?

Postby Baseballer02 » Tue May 04, 2004 10:44 am

Last I heard, Brenly was supposed to talk to Mantei about moving him out of the closers role. Has anything else been said? Need to know because I picked up Valverde when I heard the news but am thinking of dropping him for Betancourt.

Matt Mantei Latest News May. 4, 2004 - 7:37 am et


Matt Mantei has been removed from the closer role for the Diamondbacks.
Manager Bob Brenly is expected to make it official today. It could last indefinitely if Jose Valverde takes the job and runs with it. The Diamondbacks would love to trade Mantei but his contract and recent case of homer-itis make that nearly impossible. Mantei's bullpen role will be defined over the coming days.

Rotoworld.

Ugh, I was contemplating dropping Marte or Koch for him for a while yesterday. Made the decision to do so and another manager had already scooped him up. :-t
