Fred Eloy Manrique Reyes [man-RE-kay] (born November 5, 1961) is a former Major League Baseball second baseman who played for the Toronto Blue Jays (1981, 1984), Montreal Expos (1985), St. Louis Cardinals (1986), Chicago White Sox (1987–89), Texas Rangers (1989), Minnesota Twins (1990) and Oakland Athletics (1991). He batted and threw right-handed.
A native of Bolívar State, Venezuela, and the youngest of 10 children, the well-traveled Manrique was a solid second baseman with a good range and a strong throwing arm that allowed him to play deep and steal hits. He also was an above-average shortstop. When he debuted in the Major Leagues in 1981 as a 19-year-old, he was the youngest player in the Major Leagues.
