  • Sean Manaea: Becomes free agent after opting out

    Manaea exercised the opt-out clause in his contract Monday and will become a free agent, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    Manaea would have been due a $12.5 million salary for 2024, but the left-hander has decided to look for a bigger deal on the open market. The 31-year-old had an up-and-down 2023 season, holding a 4.44 ERA and 128:42 K:BB over 117.2 innings covering 10 starts and 27 relief appearances. Manaea showcased more velocity this past season than in 2022 and posted a 2.87 ERA from August onward, so he should be able to find a multi-year deal somewhere.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Strong in no-decision

    Manaea allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out eight without walking a batter over six innings in a no-decision versus the Padres on Wednesday.

    Manaea rejoined the rotation Sept. 12, and over his last four starts, he's maintained an 18:2 K:BB over 24 innings. He wasn't able to pick up a third straight win, but he earned a second straight quality start. The southpaw had his ups and downs while moving between the rotation and bullpen during the year, but he's posted a respectable 4.44 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 128:42 K:BB over 117.2 innings overall. This was likely his last start of the campaign, and after throwing 100 pitches (67 strikes), it seems improbable that he'd be able to make a relief appearance over the weekend.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Dazzles versus Dodgers

    Manaea (7-6) allowed three hits and struck out two without walking a batter over seven scoreless innings to earn the win over the Dodgers on Friday.

    Manaea was at his best, throwing 61 of 85 pitches for strikes in an efficient start against a dangerous offense. It was just his second quality start of the year, as he's often been used behind an opener. The southpaw has given up just eight runs (six earned) over 21 innings across four games in September. He's at a 4.51 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 120:42 K:BB through 111.2 innings over 36 appearances (nine starts) this year. Manaea is projected for a home outing against the Padres next week, which would likely be his last appearance of the regular season.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Able to limit Rockies in Coors

    Manaea (6-6) earned the win Sunday against the rockies, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits and no walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings.

    Manaea allowed just two baserunners to reach scoring position through the first five innings but couldn't keep the strong effort going into the sixth. He began the frame with a strikeout but then proceeded to allow a single, a home run and another single before being replaced by John Brebbia, who gave up another three more runs. Though only his last two outings have come as starts, Manaea had not given up more than four hits in an outing since July 22, but he's also given up fewer than three earned runs in each of his last five appearances. The 31-year-old now owns a 4.73 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 118:42 K:BB in 104 innings. He figures to stick in the starting rotation to close out the year and lines up to make his next start on the road against the Dodgers.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Remaining in rotation

    Manaea is slated to pitch during Sunday's game against the Rockies in Colorado.

    The Giants could end up deploying Manaea behind an opener, but in any case, he'll pitch the majority of the innings Sunday and appears to have settled into a rotation spot at this point. While picking up a start Tuesday for the first time since May 10, Manaea took a loss to the Guardians but struck out five while allowing three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks. Despite delivering solid returns in the strikeouts, ERA and WHIP categories his last time out, Manaea makes for a risky streaming option Sunday at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Decent in starting opportunity

    Manaea (5-6) allowed three runs (one earned) on two hits, two walks and a hit batsman while striking out five over 5.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday versus the Guardians.

    Manaea had a decent performance, throwing 56 of 80 pitches for strikes. He faltered in the sixth inning, though a two-out error by LaMonte Wade allowed the Guardians to load the bases. Ryan Walker relieved Manaea and promptly gave up a two-run single. Manaea has often featured as a long reliever this season, pitching to a 4.80 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 115:42 K:BB through 99.1 innings across 34 appearances (seven starts). The southpaw's role going forward is unclear, but he should be available to make his next appearance over the weekend in Colorado, whether that's as a starter or bulk reliever.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Gets starting chance Tuesday

    Manaea is listed as the Giants' starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Guardians at Oracle Park.

    He'll pick up his seventh start of the season and first since May 10, but Manaea has been making extended relief appearances for a while now, having covered between 2.2 and four innings in each of his last six outings. Assuming the Giants stick with the plan to use his as a starter rather than a bulk reliever, Manaea could still struggle to hit the five innings he would need to qualify for a win Tuesday. The Giants have Jakob Junis and Alex Wood on hand to cover multiple innings out of the bullpen if needed, and manager Gabe Kapler may prefer to use Manaea in tandem with one or both of Junis and Wood rather than leaning on the 31-year-old lefty in a traditional starting role.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Nabs win despite wildness

    Manaea (5-5) earned the win in bulk relief against San Diego on Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and five walks while striking out two batters over 3.1 innings.

    Jakob Junis opened for San Francisco and put up four scoreless, no-hit frames but didn't qualify for the win. That benefitted Manaea, who was credited with the victory as a result of following Junis with 3.1 decent frames of his own. The southpaw got the job done despite struggling to find the strike zone -- he threw just 49 of 86 pitches for strikes and walked a season-high five batters. Manaea has settled into a multi-inning relief role, going at least 2.2 (and no more than four) innings over his past five outings and posting a 3.71 ERA and 2-2 recording during that span.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Hit with loss in bulk role

    Manaea (4-5) took the loss Saturday, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over 3.2 relief innings as the Giants fell 7-3 to Atlanta. He struck out five.

    Ryan Walker worked 1.2 innings and allowed a run as the opener before Manaea took over, but it was Austin Riley's solo shot in the fifth off the southpaw that put Atlanta in the lead for good. Manaea's last four appearances have come in a bulk-relief role, and while he's gone 1-2 in that stretch, his 3.95 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 19:7 K:BB through 13.2 innings suggest he's been somewhat unlucky. If the Giants keep him on a semi-regular schedule, his next outing would likely come on the road next week against the Padres.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Saddled with fourth loss

    Manaea (4-4) took the loss Monday against the Phillies. He allowed three runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three over 2.2 innings.

    Manaea was slated for a bulk role behind Scott Alexander on Monday, though he'd only last 2.2 innings after surrendering three runs on a pair of homers. The 31-year-old Manaea had been pitching well coming into the day, allowing just one run over his last 15 innings. Overall, his ERA is up to 5.06 with a 1.28 WHIP and 102:33 K:BB across 83.2 innings this season.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Likely to pitch Monday

    Manaea is expected to serve as the bulk pitcher behind opener Scott Alexander against the Phillies on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Manaea last pitched Tuesday against the Rays and delivered 3.1 scoreless frames as he picked up his fourth win of the season. The veteran left-hander has pitched well over his past six appearances with just one run allowed and a 19:4 K:BB across 15 innings.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Snares win Tuesday

    Manaea (4-3) allowed a hit and two walks while striking out five over 3.1 shutout innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Rays.

    Manaea ultimately served as a piggyback to Jakob Junis, who started and pitched four scoreless innings. With just one run allowed over his last 15 innings (six appearances), Manaea is enjoying one of his best stretches of the season. He's trimmed his ERA to 4.89 with a 1.26 WHIP and 99:31 K:BB through 81 innings over 29 outings (six starts). The Giants continue to have rather fluid roles for many pitchers, including Manaea, who is unlikely to be available again until Sunday at the earliest.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Strong in four-inning appearance

    Manaea allowed a run on a hit and a walk while striking out six over four-plus innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Wednesday.

    Manaea was solid, but he gave up a leadoff double to Luis Rengifo to open the sixth inning. Tristan Beck entered the game and allowed an intentional walk, a single and a three-run home run to put a run on Manaea's line. Over his last five appearances, Manaea has given up one run, four hits and two walks while striking out 14 over 11.2 innings. He's at a 5.10 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 94:29 K:BB through 77.2 innings overall, and the southpaw will likely continue to be available as a bulk reliever.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Nabs first save

    Manaea retired both batters he faced to earn the save in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Manaea got a flyout and a pickoff to close out this contest for his first career save at any level of affiliated ball. The southpaw posted a mediocre 4.91 ERA over 18.1 innings across six appearances in July. He remains in a bulk-relief role as the Giants continue to use bullpen games to patch the holes in their rotation. Manaea has a 5.43 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 85:27 K:BB through 71.1 innings over 25 appearances (six starts) this year.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Dominant in bulk relief

    Manaea allowed two hits while striking out five over 4.2 scoreless innings in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Boston.

    Manaea took over for opener Ryan Walker midway through the third inning and ended up blanking the Red Sox in 4.2 frames. The outing was a much-needed rebound effort for Manaea, who had allowed nine runs over his last three outings (10.2 innings). Through 70.2 innings this season, Manaea owns a 5.48 ERA and an 85:27 K:BB while primarily acting as a reliever.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Snags win Friday

    Manaea (3-3) earned the win Friday over the Mets, allowing a hit and striking out one in a scoreless inning.

    The southpaw became the pitcher of record after Patrick Bailey hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning. It's a positive end to an otherwise rough month for Manaea, who has allowed nine runs over 15.2 innings across six appearances. He's been used in a traditional relief role over his last three outings after serving as a primary pitcher earlier in the month. For the season, Manaea has a 5.68 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 67:22 K:BB through 52.1 innings over 18 appearances (six starts). With the Giants' rotation nearing full health again, he'll likely remain a reliever for the foreseeable future.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Struggles in bulk role Friday

    Manaea allowed four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out six over 3.2 innings in Friday's 7-5 extra-innings win over the Dodgers. He did not factor in the decision.

    Manaea has had a couple of good long-relief outings and a couple of shaky ones over his last four appearances, with Friday's being in the latter category. The Dodgers did all their damage against Manaea in the fifth inning. The southpaw is now at a 5.84 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 63:21 K:BB over 49.1 innings through 15 appearances (six starts) this season. With Alex Wood (back) likely to return Saturday, the Giants will have only one opening in their rotation, which Manaea has been filling with his long-relief assignments lately. He's tentatively projected to face the Padres at home in his next outing.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Effective over long-relief outing

    Manaea allowed zero hits and zero walks with one hit batter while striking out five over 4.1 innings in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Cubs. He did not factor in the decision.

    Manaea might have been in contention to start or serve as a bulk reliever in Sunday's series finale, but he's not in the mix after this 71-pitch outing. It was another sharp appearance for the southpaw, who has limited opponents to one run or less in five of his last six outings. He's now at a 5.52 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 57:20 K:BB over 45.2 innings through 14 appearances (six starts). It's unclear if Manaea has a path back to the rotation, but he's still considered for bulk-relief outings with the Giants missing both Ross Stripling and Alex Wood to back injuries.

  • Giants' Sean Manaea: Fades late as bulk reliever

    Manaea allowed four runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five over 4.2 innings Tuesday versus the Rockies. He did not factor in the decision but picked up a hold.

    Manaea started to get into some trouble in the seventh inning, but the Giants had built up enough of a lead to cruise to the win. Over his previous four appearances, he'd yielded just two runs (one earned) across 10.2 innings, but this was a modestly successful outing in Colorado for the struggling southpaw. He's at a 6.10 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 52:20 K:BB through 41.1 innings over 13 appearances (six starts) this season. Manaea's likely to continue in this bulk-relief role for his next projected appearance over the weekend versus the Cubs.
