  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Shines in no-decision

    Manning pitched five scoreless innings against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out seven. He did not factor in the decision.

    Manning's final start of his rookie campaign was arguably his finest, as the right-hander yielded a season-low two hits while tossing his first scoreless outing. He also notched a season-high seven strikeouts, but a late-game collapse by Detroit's bullpen cost him a victory. Manning enjoyed some bright moments throughout the season, though he wraps up the campaign with a 5.80 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 4-7 record. He should be a key part of the Tigers' rotation in 2022.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Ineffective through 3.1

    Manning (4-7) got the loss Monday after pitching 3.1 innings and giving up six runs to the White Sox. He allowed four hits, walked five and struck out two.

    The 23-year-old pitched three scoreless before imploding in the top of the fourth inning. He allowed six consecutive batters to reach base before being pulled with one out, ultimately surrendering six runs in the inning. After a three-start streak of three or less runs given up, his ERA went from an already disappointing 5.73 to 6.16 in this one. Manning's next start is expected to come Saturday against the White Sox again.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Looks sharp in win

    Manning (4-6) tossed six innings of one-run ball to pick up the win Wednesday against the Brewers. He allowed two hits and three walks while striking out six.

    This was probably the best start of Manning's rookie campaign, as he struck out a season-high six batters and tied a season high with the six innings pitched. There was some concern the 23-year-old might miss this start after taking a liner off his left knee in his last outing, but he looked no worse for the wear. It's still been mostly a struggle this year for Manning with a 5.75 ERA, though he's allowed just two total runs across his last two starts. The righty will look to build on the positive momentum in his next scheduled appearance Monday against the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Ready to start Wednesday

    The Tigers list Manning (knee) as their starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Brewers, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Manning's inclusion in Detroit's pitching schedule this week implies the team has no concern about the health of his left knee, which was struck by a line drive in his last outing Sept. 8 in Pittsburgh. Though Manning was pulled early from the start as a result, his exit looks to have been precautionary, as he escaped with little more than a bruise on the knee. Since joining the big-league rotation in mid-June, Manning has gone 3-6 with a 6.14 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 66 innings over 14 starts.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: X-rays confirm bruise

    Manning (knee) had X-rays come back negative after leaving Wednesday's start against the Pirates, Jason Beck of reports.

    Manning was struck on the left knee by a liner during the third inning, and the initial diagnosis of a contusion was confirmed when the X-rays came back clean. The 23-year-old didn't factor in the decision after giving up one run on four hits with four strikeouts and zero walks in three innings. He should be considered day-to-day, and it's currently unclear if he'll be able to make his next turn through the rotation.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Exits with knee contusion

    Manning was removed from Wednesday's start at Pittsburgh with a left knee contusion.

    Manning was hit in the knee by a line drive on the final out of the third inning, which spelled an early end to his start. The 23-year-old was pitching well prior to being hit and allowed one run on four hits with four strikeouts and zero walks in three frames. The Tigers are currently leading, but he'll end up with a no-decision since he didn't last the five required innings. It's unclear if the injury will affect his next turn through the rotation.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Tagged for eight runs

    Manning (3-6) was charged with the loss Thursday against the A's after allowing eight runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out one across 3.2 innings.

    Coming off one of his best outings of the year, Manning got off to a rough start with a 32-pitch, four-run first inning Thursday. The right-hander walked Starling Marte on six pitches, then walked Matt Chapman with two outs. Jed Lowrie took advantage by launching a three-run home run, and Mark Canha with a solo shot to make it 4-0. Manning never recovered from there, resulting in his sixth loss of the season. The 23-year-old has a 6.29 ERA and 1.60 WHIP this season, and he's not guaranteed to stick in the rotation through the end of the campaign.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Allows one run Friday

    Manning pitched six innings of one-run ball but did not factor into the decision Friday against the Blue Jays, He allowed six hits and a walk while striking out five.

    Manning and Toronto starter Steven Matz both allowed just one run through six innings, so Manning was denied his fourth win of the season. However, this was a step in the right direction for the 23-year-old, who had allowed 11 earned runs across his last three starts (14.2 innings pitched). Manning will take a 5.46 ERA into his next scheduled start Thursday against the Athletics and will look to build on this encouraging outing.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Struggles with command Thursday

    Manning allowed two runs on five hits across 4.2 innings and did not factor into the decision Thursday against the Angels. He walked four and struck out four.

    The season-high four walks pushed Manning's pitch count up, as he needed 96 pitches to retire his only batters, though he avoided the loss as the Tigers spotted him 10 runs of support. Manning now has a 5.91 ERA through his first 11 MLB starts, and he only has 29 strikeouts across 53.1 innings, so he's not doing much to move the needle in fantasy. The 23-year-old is projected to make his next start Aug. 27 against the Blue Jays.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Posts quality start Thursday

    Manning (3-5) earned the win Thursday against the Orioles after allowing three runs on eight hits across six innings, striking out two without walking a batter.

    Manning recorded his second quality start of the season, and most importantly, he managed to bounce back after a woeful outing against Cleveland in his previous start. The rookie right-hander has struggled with consistency at times, but he has shown promise and has allowed three or fewer runs in five of his last seven appearances. Despite that, a couple of subpar outings mean he still owns a 6.10 ERA on the season.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Clobbered by Cleveland

    Manning (2-5) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs on 10 hits over four innings as the Tigers were downed 6-1 by Cleveland. He struck out three without walking a batter.

    There were some positives for the rookie, as he kept the ball in the yard and didn't issue a free pass -- the first time he's done both in a start in the majors -- but in general it was another poor showing for Manning. He'll carry a 6.33 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 23:13 K:BB through 42.2 innings into his next outing.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: One out away from quality start

    Manning (2-4) was tagged with the loss Saturday against the Orioles after allowing five runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while fanning three across 5.2 innings.

    Manning gave up five runs, but only two were earned. He's given up two or fewer earned runs in four of his last five appearances. The rookie right-hander posted a 4.07 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP across five July starts and should remain in the rotation the rest of the way as long as he stays healthy. He's scheduled to make his next start against Cleveland on the road next week.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Escapes with no-decision

    Manning didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Twins, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk over five-plus innings. He struck out four.

    The rookie didn't pitch too badly through five innings, but Brent Rooker led off the sixth with a solo shot and Manning walked Jorge Polanco before getting the hook, with Jose Cisnero then allowing the inherited runner to score. Manning remains a work in progress, but he has worked at least five innings in each of his last three starts, posting a 3.94 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 11:6 K:BB through 16 frames over that stretch.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Stays in rotation

    Manning is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Twins in Minnesota, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    With Jose Urena (groin) recently joining Spencer Turnbull (elbow), Matthew Boyd (triceps) and Julio Teheran (shoulder) on the injured list, Manning and Tyler Alexander should have a decent amount of leash on back-end rotation spots for Detroit. After being called up from Triple-A Toledo last week when the Tigers required a fifth starter for the first time in the second half, Manning delivered the best start of his young career. He limited the Rangers to two runs (one earned) while striking out four across six innings en route to capturing his second win.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Earns second win

    Manning (2-3) allowed two runs (one earned) across six innings to pick up the win Wednesday against the Rangers. He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out four.

    Manning got the call from Triple-A Toledo coming out of the All-Star break, and the 23-year-old turned in his best start at the MLB level. It was the first time in six appearances during his rookie campaign that he lasted at least six innings, while the one earned run was a new career best as well. Manning should continue to pick up starts for the Tigers as they evaluate him for the future. He's scheduled to take the hill again Monday against the Twins.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Confirmed for Wednesday's start

    Manning was recalled from Triple-A Toledo and will start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    The right-hander was sent to the minors prior to the All-Star break and will rejoin the big-league rotation Wednesday. Manning has a 6.95 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB across 22 innings through his first five starts in the majors, though a nine-run blowup versus Cleveland accounts for most of the damage against him.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Likely to get callup Wednesday

    The Tigers are expected to call Manning up from Triple-A Toledo to start Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Before being optioned to Toledo prior to the All-Star break, Manning was lit up over his first five big-league starts, posting a 6.95 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 22 innings. Despite the discouraging results, Manning looks like he'll have a decent amount of leash at the back of the Detroit rotation due to the team's lack of healthy starters. Jose Urena (groin) joined Matthew Boyd (triceps), Spencer Turnbull (forearm) and Julio Teheran (shoulder) on the injured list Saturday, and none of the four appear close to a return.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Not expected to start at Triple-A

    The Tigers don't expect Manning to pitch for Triple-A Toledo during the All-Star break, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Contrary to initial reports, Manning's demotion was simply to add a bullpen arm in Derek Holland for the last two games before the break. Having pitched Friday, Manning was going to be unavailable Saturday and Sunday anyway.
