Manaea underwent surgery performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Wednesday to clean up the space between his shoulder joint capsule, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports. Per Jane Lee of MLB.com, head trainer Nick Paparesta stated that the club will have a better indication of Manaea's timetable around spring training. In addition to cleaning up the joint, ElAttrache also repaired Manaea's labrum. It's expected that Manaea will miss the entirety of the 2019 season after undergoing this procedure, but as Paparesta stated, there doesn't seem to be a concrete timeframe at this juncture until the team is able to monitor how he responds to the surgery. According to Lee, Paparesta was encouraged by ElAttrache's prognosis in which he said, "We all feel like [Manaea] will be back at the major-league level pitching again." It is a bit concerning that ElAttrache felt the need to make this sort of comment, but obviously this statement was more inspiring than if he would've said the opposite. Based on comments from all parties, it appears as though a best-case scenario would see Manaea return to the fold at some point near the end of the 2019 season.
Manaea underwent successful shoulder surgery Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Specifics regarding the procedure remain unknown, though everything apparently went as planned. Manaea is expected to miss all of 2019 after going under the knife. He posted a career-best 3.59 ERA through 27 starts this season prior to suffering the injury.
Manaea is expected to be sidelined for all of 2019 after undergoing shoulder surgery, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The team will know for sure following the procedure, but the current expectation is that it will take a full year for the lefty to recover. That's unfortunate news for the A's and for Manaea, who had posted a career-best 3.59 ERA through 27 starts.
Manaea will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Sept. 19. Manaea was shut down with rotator cuff tendinitis in late August and will wind up being out for the rest of the year. He'll finish the season with a 12-9 record and a 3.59 ERA in 27 starts. It's unclear whether the recovery time for the surgery will put him at risk of missing start of next season. More should become clear following the procedure.
Manaea (shoulder) is optimistic he'll pitch again this season, but the A's are considering it a long shot, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Manaea began strengthening exercises Monday, but he's still a long way from returning to the lineup. More news on a timetable for his return should surface as he makes strides in his rehab, but despite his optimism it seems safe to assume Manaea won't be back this season.
