Player Outlook
Matt Manning only appeared in 15 games for the Tigers in 2023, though he displayed some positive signs. The former first-round pick posted a strong 3.58 ERA and 1.04 WHIP across 78 innings. That came on the heels of his 3.43 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 2022. Injuries have cut into the righty's overall production, however, as he missed significant time each of the last two seasons due to a handful of issues, including a foot fracture that ended his 2023 campaign. Manning should have a rotation spot heading into 2024, though Detroit's offseason signing of Kenta Maeda adds more competition. For Manning, the biggest key is staying healthy, as he's yet to reach 100 innings at the MLB level. The Tigers will likely limit his workload to a degree, though surpassing last year's innings total should be within reach. If Manning can do that, he figures to be a decent fantasy option. However, the 25-year-old's ceiling will be capped unless he can miss some more bats. Manning posted a 5.77 K/9 last season and has yet to reach even a middling 7.0 K/9 across three seasons in the majors. As a pitch-to-contact player, he may be best deployed in certain matchups rather than as a fantasy regular.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Strikes out five in no-decision

    Manning allowed three runs on nine hits across 5.2 innings and did not factor into the decision Monday against the Marlins. He walked one and struck out five. Manning was recalled from Triple-A Toledo before the game, and he managed to limit damage despite being a tad too hittable. The five strikeouts helped the cause and continued a promising trend for the righty. Across 22.2 innings in the majors this year, Manning now has 22 strikeouts. He also has 24 strikeouts over 19 innings in the minors. For a pitcher who posted a 5.8 K/9 for Detroit in 2023, it's a step in the right direction. Manning should continue to start with Kenta Maeda (illness) out, and he's penciled in to take the mound again Sunday against the Diamondbacks on the road.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Recalled ahead of Monday's start

    The Tigers recalled Manning from Triple-A Toledo on Monday. He'll start Monday against the Marlins and should be set for at least a couple of turns through the big-league rotation while Kenta Maeda (illness) is on the 15-day injured list. Manning has been solid during his time with the Tigers this season, putting up a 4.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 17 innings through his first three starts.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Slated to start for big club Monday

    The Tigers will promote Manning from Triple-A Toledo to start Monday against the Marlins in Detroit, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Manning is set to rejoin the big club after Kenta Maeda was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday due to a viral illness. The 26-year-old right-hander holds a 0-1 record over three major-league starts this season and sports a 4.24 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 17 innings.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Likely Maeda replacement

    Manning will likely rejoin the big-league rotation with Kenta Maeda (viral illness) being placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Jack Flaherty is currently listed as the starter for Sunday's game against the Astros, but given that Manning was scratched from his Saturday start for Toledo, it's possible he could start Sunday, or at least Monday against the Marlins. Manning has a 4.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 17 innings through three MLB starts this year.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Returns to Toledo

    The Tigers returned Manning to Triple-A Toledo after Tuesday's win over St. Louis. Manning allowed four runs in 4.2 innings and walked away with a no-decision during his third start of the year. The 26-year-old righty has often been the Tigers' first choice to come up from the minors for spot starts, and there's a good chance he gets a few more opportunities to pitch in the big leagues as the season goes on.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Added as 27th man

    The Tigers added Manning to the active roster to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. Manning will be making his third start of the season Tuesday. He looked good during his first two big-league outings, posting a 2.92 ERA and 0.89 WHIP across 12.1 innings, though he will likely be sent back to Triple-A Toledo after Tuesday's game.

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

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch confirmed that Manning will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Manning had been on turn at Toledo but instead will take the hill Tuesday with the big club since they have a need for a spot starter. The right-hander has looked good in his two previous starts with Detroit this season, yielding four runs while putting up a 10:6 K:BB over 12.1 innings. He will be designated as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader and is likely to be sent back down to the minors after the start.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Could serve as 27th man Tuesday

    The Tigers could call Manning up from Triple-A Toledo to start one game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Manning's next turn with Toledo falls Tuesday, so he's an obvious option to start for the big club instead. He's previously made two starts with the Tigers this season, giving up four runs while turning in a 10:6 K:BB over 12.1 innings.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Returns to Triple-A

    Manning was returned to Triple-A Toledo after Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins. The right-hander was called up to start the nightcap Saturday and took the loss after giving up four runs with a 7:2 K:BB over 6.2 innings. Manning has a 2.92 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in two outings as a spot starter for Detroit, and he'll remain the No. 1 candidate for a call-up when the big club again needs a starter.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Fans seven in loss

    Manning (0-1) took the loss against the Twins on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 6.2 innings. Manning struggled out of the gate, walking each of the first two batters he faced to open the game before allowing the Twins' first run to come home on a sacrifice fly. The right-hander was then victimized by the long ball in the third and sixth innings as Detroit struggled to back him with anything on offense. It wasn't all bad for Manning, however, as he did fan seven batters on the day while producing 12 swinging strikes. He's gone at least five innings in each of his two starts this season and is still sporting a 2.92 ERA following the loss.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Confirmed for Saturday start

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch announced Manning will be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The announcement is hardly a surprise, as Manning was scratched from his scheduled start with Toledo on Wednesday in preparation of a postponement. The right-hander made his season debut April 4 against the Mets and didn't allow a hit with four walks and three strikeouts over 5.2 scoreless frames.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Likely to make weekend spot start

    The Tigers are expected to call up Manning from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Twins, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Even before the series opener with the Twins was officially postponed Thursday, the Tigers were seemingly prepared for the possibility of a doubleheader being created this weekend due to a rainout. As Jason Beck of MLB.com notes, Manning was scratched from his scheduled start with Toledo on Wednesday for what appear to be non-injury-related reasons, so he's the logical choice to fill the opening in the rotation with Saturday's doubleheader creating a stretch of six games in five days for Detroit. Manning previously made his season debut with the Tigers on April 4, striking out three over 5.2 scoreless, no-hit frames in a no-decision against the Mets in the second game of a twin bill.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Heads back to Triple-A

    Manning was returned to Triple-A Toledo after the Tigers' 2-1 loss to the Mets in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader. Manning drew the start in the second game, but he didn't factor into the decision while covering 5.2 scoreless innings while striking out three and allowing no hits and issuing four walks. Though he'll head back to the minors, Manning will be the top option to join the big-league rotation if a more permanent spot opens up.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Officially added as 27th man

    The Tigers added Manning to the active roster to start Thursday's nightcap against the Mets. Manning gave up one earned run over five innings during his first start of the year in Triple-A, and he'll now get a chance to make his first MLB appearance of the year after failing to make the Tigers' rotation out of spring training. Manning will most likely return to Triple-A Toledo after Thursday's game.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Set for spot start Thursday

    The Tigers plan to call up Manning from Triple-A Toledo to start the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Mets, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Manning wasn't able to secure a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day rotation, but he won't have to wait long to make his first start of the season with the big club. As a result of weather-related postponements on consecutive days, the Tigers and Mets will play a twin bill Thursday in Citi Field, creating a stretch of seven games in six days for Detroit. Manning will be designated as the 27th man for the twin bill and will serve as a temporary sixth starter before likely being optioned back to Toledo immediately following the start against the Mets. Manning looked sharp in his lone outing for Toledo last Friday, striking out seven while pitching five innings of one-run ball.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Tigers optioned Manning to Triple-A Toledo on Friday. He was in a hard-fought battle for one of the final two spots in the Tigers' rotation, but the club has opted to go with Casey Mize and Reese Olson. Manning should still ultimately spend a good chunk of the season in Detroit's rotation, but for now he'll head to Toledo to start every fifth day.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Should be ready for spring training

    Manning (foot) has had a normal offseason throwing routine and is expected to be ready for the start of spring training, MLB.com reports. Manning sustained a fractured foot after being struck by a line drive off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton in September. The injury ended his 2023 season, though it doesn't seem like it should impact the righty in 2024. Manning finished last year with a solid 3.58 ERA and 1.04 WHIP across 78 innings (15 starts), though he struck out only 50 batters.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Placed on IL

    The Tigers placed Manning on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a right foot fracture. Manning has already been ruled out for the rest of the season, so his move to the injured list is simply procedural. His roster spot will be filled by Trey Wingenter, who was brought up from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Done for season

    Manning suffered a fractured right foot during Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. A 119-mph grounder off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton struck Manning's right foot in the first inning of Wednesday's contest, and he will now officially miss the rest of the season. Manning already missed a significant amount of time at the beginning of the year with a fracture in the same foot, though he reportedly injured a different part of his foot Wednesday. The 25-year-old righty will finish 2023 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.04 WHIP through 78 innings.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Exits with injury

    Manning was removed from Wednesday's game against the Yankees after getting hit in the right foot by a comebacker, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Giancarlo Stanton smacked a 119-mph grounder that ricocheted off Manning's right foot in the first inning of Wednesday's contest, and Manning had to be replaced on the mound by Beau Brieske. The Tigers will take a look at Manning and provide more information in the near future, but he should be considered day-to-day until then.
