Wiki

Emmanuel "Manny" Allen Burriss (born January 17, 1985 in Washington, D.C.) is a Major League Baseball second baseman for the San Francisco Giants. He is a switch-hitter who throws right-handed and has played both second base and shortstop.

Burriss attended Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C., and St. Ann's Academy in middle school. At Wilson, he played basketball as well as baseball. He was the first Major League Baseball player to graduate from the Washington, D.C. public school system since 1981, when catcher Willie Royster played in four games for the Baltimore Orioles. Burriss also played in the Cape Cod Baseball League, a summer league for college players, with the Orleans Cardinals, and he played collegiately at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio. After his college career the San Francisco Giants drafted him in the first round of the 2006 MLB Draft.

After two strong years in the minor leagues, Burriss was rated the Giants' tenth best prospect in the Baseball America Prospect Handbook 2008. He did not make the Giants out of spring training that year, but the Giants purchased his contract from the AAA Fresno Grizzlies on April 20. He finished his rookie season with a stellar .283 batting average in 95 games. Afterwards, Burriss participated in the 2008 Arizona Fall League as a member of the Scottsdale Scorpions. During the Giants' 2009 spring training camp Burriss competed with Kevin Frandsen for the starting second baseman position; Burriss was named the starter on April 1, 2009. On June 4, Burriss was playing second base as Randy Johnson won his 300th game against the Washington Nationals. Burriss' RBI single in the second inning proved to be the game-winning RBI. Despite that, on Tuesday, June 16, he was sent down to AAA Fresno Grizzlies for Matt Downs due to his lack of offensive production. On July 5, 2009 Burriss fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot rounding second base at Fresno, ending his season. He refractured the foot in Spring training 2010. Burriss returned (in Fresno) late in the 2010 season, and he was called up once the season ended.
