Manager Charlie Montoyo said Manoah (back) could return from the injured list to start Saturday versus the Royals, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. The right-hander was scheduled to throw 60-to-75 pitches in a simulated game Monday, and Montoyo's comments indicate that session went well. If confirmed to start Saturday, Manoah shouldn't face significant workload limitations in his first start off the injured list given Monday's pitch count.
Manoah (back) is scheduled to throw 60-to-75 pitches in a simulated game Monday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. The 23-year-old was previously expected to rejoin the rotation Monday, but he'll instead throw one more simulated game before potentially being activated. If all goes well in the sim game, Manoah could be back with Toronto to start Saturday's contest versus Kansas City.
Manoah (back) won't return from the injured list early next week, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports. Manoah had initially hoped that he'd be able to return to the Blue Jays in time to start Monday's series opener in Boston, but he'll instead make a simulated start in Florida on Monday. It's not yet clear when the right-hander will be able to return from the injured list.
Manoah (back) hopes to return to the starting rotation Monday in Boston, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Manoah suffered a right back bruise after he slipped on the dugout steps recently, but he's been optimistic that he'll only miss one turn through the rotation. He felt fine after playing catch in recent days, but Thomas Hatch will be available as a backup option in case the right-hander isn't ready to return.
Manoah (back) is only expected to miss one turn in the rotation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Manoah hit the injured list Monday with a bruised back that he suffered after slipping on the dugout steps. He felt fine after playing catch, so he should be ready to return after a minimum-length stay. Thomas Hatch will start in his absence Tuesday against the Red Sox.
