Manaea (6-4) struck out eight while allowing three runs on seven hits and a pair of walks over six innings in Wednesday's home loss to Houston.
After a five-run effort against the Yankees his last time out, Manaea bounced right back with a solid outing, although the result wasn't a favorable one. Still, his 81:28 K:BB over 73.1 innings should have his fantasy owners pleased even if his ERA remains a bit inflated at 4.05. If everyone stays on schedule, Manaea will rematch Mike Fiers and the Astros in Houston on Tuesday.
Manaea didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 7-6 win over the Yankees, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out seven.
The young lefty did have the advantage of facing a Yankees squad that was sitting a couple of regulars, but he turned in a serviceable performance in many respects despite giving up five runs. Manaea notched 17 swinging strikes among his 107 pitches and was mainly done in by two mistakes, a three-run home run by Aaron Judge in the third and a solo shot by Chris Carter in the sixth. The 25-year-old did an impressive job keeping the ball down otherwise, inducing 11 groundballs overall. The outing did snap a five-start winning streak for Manaea, but he'll look to start a new one when he takes on the Astros at home next Wednesday.
Manaea (6-3) gave up two earned runs on six hits, two walks, a wild pitch and a hit batsman over seven innings during Saturday's 7-2 win over the Rays in the second game of a doubleheader. He struck out five.
The lefty worked up to 103 pitches and racked up 20 swinging strikes over that span. It was Manaea's fourth consecutive quality start, as well as his fifth straight outing giving up two earned runs or less. He's notched victories in each of those contests while lowering his ERA from 5.52 to 3.67 in the process. He'll look to extend his current successful stretch when he tangles with the Yankees at home in his next start.
Manaea (5-3) gave up two earned runs on four hits and three walks over six innings in Monday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays. He struck out seven.
Manaea got into some early trouble in the first but was quickly given a reprieve when Ryon Healy bashed the first of two home runs in the second to stake the young lefty to a 3-1 lead. The 25-year-old then settled in and allowed just one other run the rest of the way, exiting after six frames and a season-high 111 pitches. It was Manaea's third straight quality start, a stretch in which he's allowed just three earned runs and compiled a 24:5 K:BB across 20 innings. He'll look notch what would be his fifth consecutive victory when he faces the Rays on the road next Saturday.
Manaea (4-3) tossed seven impressive innings in Cleveland on Wednesday, striking out nine while allowing just a single run on three hits and a walk.
He's now won three straight starts, and the last two have been particularly impressive efforts. Manaea's showing more and more flashes of his sky-high upside, and he's now pulled his ERA under the 4.00 mark to 3.91; his accompanying 1.03 WHIP and promising 54:19 K:BB (48.1 innings) would suggest that his run prevention will continue improving. The 25-year-old righty will make his next start at home against Toronto on Monday.
