Manoah allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out five across six innings in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox. He didn't factor into the decision. Manoah made a mistake in the bottom of the third inning, surrendering an RBI double to left field, but he held Boston in check the rest of his start. He's now looked strong in back-to-back outings, surrendering just two earned runs across 11 total frames while punching out nine. Manoah's next outing tentatively lines up for Saturday in Baltimore.
Manoah tossed five innings against the White Sox on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision. After getting lit up by the Marlins in his last turn, Manoah showed some resilience by posting a solid outing against a strong White Sox offense Wednesday. He gave up an unearned run in the first inning as the result of an error and passed ball prior to a Yoan Moncada single, then kept Chicago off the board until Nick Madrigal tagged him for run-scoring double in the fifth. Through three big-league starts, Manoah has posted a 3.14 ERA and 16:7 K:BB across 14.1 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday at Boston.
Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Marlins, surrendering four runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out five. In his second MLB start, Manoah had his worst outing as a pro on a rainy night in Buffalo, but a ninth-inning rally by Toronto got him off the hook for a loss. The 23-year-old threw 50 of 74 pitches for strikes before exiting, and his rotation spot remains secure given the Blue Jays' lack of alternatives. Manoah will take a 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB through 9.1 innings into his next start.
Manoah (1-0) fired six scoreless innings on two hits and two walks while striking out seven to earn the win over the Yankees on Thursday. In his MLB debut, Manoah looked like a veteran, striking out more batters (7) than baserunners allowed (4). It took him just 88 pitches -- 60 were strikes -- to get through six innings. The 23-year-old had a 0.50 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 18 innings in the minors this season, prompting his call-up. He ranks as the 96th overall prospect in baseball and a top-five prospect in the Blue Jays' system, according to MLB Pipeline.
Manoah's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Thursday. Manoah's major-league debut was pushed back a day after Wednesday's game was postponed, but he'll start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Manoah made three starts for Triple-A Buffalo to begin the season and posted a 0.50 ERA and 0.56 WHIP in 18 innings. He could have the chance to earn the fifth spot in the rotation after Anthony Kay was recently sent to the minors.
