Madhyad Manji is set to leave his Sri Lanka home and return to the United States after two seasons with the Red Sox, according to a report.
Manji, who spent the previous two seasons in the Red Wings organization, was named the team’s starting shortstop in June and posted a .278/.357/.419 slash line in 131 plate appearances, with 16 homers and 27 RBIs.
He was also named the Red Wing’s Player of the Year in 2018.
The 25-year-old Manji, a left-handed hitter, is expected to compete for a roster spot in 2019.
The Red Sox reportedly signed Manji as a minor league free agent in 2017, and he played in two games for the team in 2017 before he was promoted to Triple-A Pawtucket.
Manjhi has posted an .857 OPS in two seasons at Pawtrick, and his .311 batting average, 21 homers and 50 RBIs rank third in the Pawtritzle organization.
Manji made his MLB debut in 2018, but missed most of the season due to a shoulder injury.
Manjahi is a former Sri Lanka international.
He spent the past two seasons playing for the Red Bulls, making his MLB debuts in 2019 and 2018.
