(8/7/13) Cardinals reliever Seth Maness has been a double play machine, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Maness has an absurd 12 double plays in just 39 1/3 innings. The sinkerballer knows that he's not going to overpower hitters, and instead focuses on pounding the zone. "I have to rely on movement. I have to pitch to contact," Maness said. He's averaging a double play every 7.5 batters he faces.
Maness has a 2.52 ERA in 40 games.
|Seth Maness providing surprising results |

(7/29/13) Cardinals reliever Seth Maness leads NL relievers with 11 double plays induced and his 2.91 double plays per nine innings is tops in the majors, according to MLB.com. He's also only allowed six of his 32 inherited runners to score.
"He had some good outings in spring training, but did we realize this would be his job description? No," manager Mike Matheny said, per MLB.com. "Obviously, we've realized it here over the last couple of months that it's not just a knack, but that's what his pitch style really induces. It's a great opportunity to get him in there."
|Seth Maness making most of promotion |

(5/12/13) Cardinals reliever Seth Maness has looked impressive during his brief stint in the majors. Maness, who was recalled from Triple-A Memphis April 29, is 2-0 and has not allowed a run over his three appearances (3 1/3 innings) entering Sunday against the Rockies.
The right-hander has made 10 outs in 18 pitches. He has induced three double plays and got five outs on the first eight pitches he threw in the big leagues.
"This whole thing has been pretty surreal," he told MLB.com. "I must have a little luck on my side. I'm in the right place at the right time, I guess."
|Cardinals to call up Seth Maness |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/29/13) The Cardinals are planning to call up reliever Seth Maness in order to strengthen their bullpen against the Reds.
Maness has generally worked as a starter throughout his minor-league career, and has been an extreme control guy. Maness walked just nine hitters in 123 2/3 innings last season. He was named the team's minor league pitcher of the year in 2012. The team is expected to make the move Monday.
