Top Alek Manoah News

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Throws five innings in no-decision

    Manoah did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk over five innings in a 6-5 loss to the Orioles. He struck out five.

    Toronto's ace got off to a rocky start, surrendering two runs in the first inning and proceeding to allow one more run to score in the third. While he was unable to record the quality start, Manoah was able to get through five innings for the 22nd time this season despite not being at his best. He'll look to get the better of the Orioles in his next scheduled start next week.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Shaky control in win

    Manoah (12-5) allowed two runs on two hits, four walks and a hit batter while striking out five across six innings to earn the win Thursday over the Twins.

    Manoah matched his season high with the four walks, but he was able to keep the ball in the yard for just the second time in his last eight starts. The Blue Jays' offense made sure he left with a lead by rallying for three runs in the sixth inning. The 24-year-old right-hander has quality starts in four of his last five outings, and he owns a sharp 2.45 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 119:30 K:BB across 132 innings in 21 starts overall. Manoah is on track for a road start in Baltimore next week.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Cleared to start Thursday

    Manoah (elbow) has been cleared to make his next start Thursday in Minnesota, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Though Manoah exited his most recent start Friday against the Tigers early after being struck on the elbow with a comebacker, he avoided a significant injury and escaped with just a bruise on his pitching arm. The 24-year-old was apparently able to complete his between-starts bullpen session without any discomfort, so he should be in line for a normal workload Thursday when he takes the hill for the 21st time this season.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Looks on track for next start

    Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said Sunday that Manoah (elbow) is line to make his next turn through the rotation, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Manoah was fortunate to avoid anything more than a bruise after he was struck in his pitching elbow by a comebacker in his last outing Friday against the Tigers. He played catch Sunday and could be cleared to throw a side session Monday or Tuesday. If all goes well during the mound session, Manoah would be available to start as soon as Thursday's series opener in Minnesota. Due to an off day Monday, the Blue Jays would have the luxury of pushing Manoah's next start until Saturday if he needs a couple extra days to heal up.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Feeling better Saturday

    Manoah (elbow) is feeling better Saturday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Manoah exited Friday's game against the Tigers with a right elbow contusion after being struck by a comebacker, but he underwent X-rays that came back negative. He'll rest for a few days before throwing a side session, and while the Blue Jays hope he won't need to miss a turn through the rotation, his availability for his next start will likely be determined based on how he feels after his upcoming throwing session.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: X-rays negative, has contusion

    Manoah left Friday's game against the Tigers with a right elbow contusion.

    Precautionary X-rays came back negative, and the Jays have Monday off, so Manoah could get a week to rest up before taking the ball again. He was hit in the right elbow by a comebacker off the bat of Jonathan Schoop and exited after giving up four runs in 5.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Exits after comebacker hits arm

    Manoah was hit on the right elbow by a comebacker off the bat of Jonathan Schoop and exited Friday's game after 5.1 innings with the trainer, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    McCosky says Manoah was in considerable pain as he exited the game. The big righty gave up four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four in 5.1 innings. He will presumably have tests done on his arm to determine the exact injury.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Strikes out seven in win

    Manoah (11-4) earned the win against Boston on Saturday, allowing one run on seven hits while striking out seven and walking none over six innings.

    Despite allowing seven hits in Saturday's contest, Manoah limited the damage to just one earned run on a Bobby Dalbec solo shot in the second inning. Manoah threw 68 of 97 pitches for strikes across six frames, helping the righty pick up his third quality start in a row. In fact, just three of his 19 starts this year have not resulted in a quality start. Manoah has also been excellent at limiting walks, with none allowed in his last two games. He will take a 2.24 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP into his next appearance.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Sharp in win No. 10

    Manoah (10-4) picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings in an 8-1 victory over the Royals. He struck out six without walking a batter.

    The right-hander did plunk two batters, but Manoah otherwise dominated as he piled up 17 swinging strikes among his 86 pitches. The quality start was his 15th in 18 trips to the mound -- tying him with Sandy Alcantara for second in the majors behind Framber Valdez's 16 -- and Manoah will take a 2.28 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 103:25 K:BB through 114.2 innings into what will probably be the first of many All-Star Game appearances for the 24-year-old.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Strikes out seven over 7.1 innings

    Manoah (9-4) took the loss Saturday against the Mariners. He allowed two runs on three hits and four walks with seven strikeouts in 7.1 innings.

    Manoah's four walks matched a season high -- he hadn't issued that many free passes since April 11. He also gave up a homer for the fourth straight start, and it was a two-run blast to Carlos Santana, which saddled Manoah with his second straight loss. The right-hander showed improvement from his recent form, but he's still allowed 16 runs (14 earned) over his last 32 innings. For the season, he has a 2.34 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 97:25 K:BB through 107.2 innings in 17 starts. He's projected for a favorable home start against the Royals next week, giving him a chance to end the first half strong.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Handed loss Monday

    Manoah (9-3) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out five over 5.2 innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Athletics.

    The A's got to Manoah for three runs in the first inning. He also allowed solo home runs to Ramon Laureano and Stephen Vogt later in the contest, making this just the second time in 16 starts the right-hander has given up multiple long balls. Manoah's yielded 14 runs (12 earned) in 24.2 innings across his last four starts, enduring his first real stretch of adversity in 2022. He still owns a 2.33 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 90:21 K:BB through 100.1 innings overall, and he'll look to get back on track in Seattle this weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Covers seven innings in no-decision

    Manoah allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in seven innings in a no-decision versus the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Manoah was solid in this start, earning his 13th quality start in 15 turns this season. His biggest mistake was a two-run home run to Alex Verdugo in the sixth inning. Manoah owns a 2.09 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 85:19 K:BB across 94.2 innings overall as he continues to be one of the top pitchers in the majors. He'll resume his pursuit of his 10th win of the year in Oakland next week.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Collects ninth win

    Manoah (9-2) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 6.2 innings, earning the win Friday over the Brewers.

    Manoah allowed a run on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning and gave up a solo home run to Tyrone Taylor in the seventh. The Blue Jays' offense was more than capable of covering that damage, allowing Manoah to earn his fourth win in his last five starts. It was also his 12th quality start in 14 outings this season, as the 24-year-old right-hander continues to pitch like an ace. He has a 2.05 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 79:18 K:BB while allowing just six homers in 87.2 innings this year. He's projected for a home start versus the Red Sox next week, though it's unclear if the Blue Jays will stay on rotation with an eight-game week ahead or if they'll call upon a spot starter early in the week. If Manoah gets pushed back a day, he'd face the Rays.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Takes second loss

    Manoah (8-2) gave up four earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out five over 5.1 innings to take the loss in a 4-0 defeat to the Yankees on Saturday.

    Manoah gave up four earned runs for the first time this season and was tagged for just his second loss. Despite being his worst start of the season, it came against the best offense in the league and did have some bright spots. Manoah kept Aaron Judge hitless and didn't surrender a home run. Considering the tough matchup, there isn't anything to suggest that Manoah won't continue to find success in 2022, especially against lesser lineups. Opponents are still hitting only .201 against him on the season. Manoah is slated for a more favorable matchup in Milwaukee next week.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Cruises to eighth win

    Manoah (8-1) allowed a hit, a walk and a hit batter while striking out seven over six scoreless innings to earn the win Monday over the Orioles.

    Manoah had no trouble quieting the Orioles' bats Monday, turning in his second straight outing of six shutout innings. He's posted a quality start in all but one of his 12 starts this season, and he's earned the win in four of his last five outings. The 24-year-old has posted a dominant 1.67 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 68:14 K:BB through 75.2 innings this season. He's projected for a home start versus the Yankees this weekend. While that's a tough matchup on paper, he's allowed just one run, four hits and five walks in 12 innings across two previous starts against the Yankees this season.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Fires six scoreless

    Manoah (7-1) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched six scoreless innings, allowing six hits and three walks while striking out four against the Royals.

    Manoah held the Royals without an extra-base hit over six frames Tuesday, notching his fifth consecutive quality start. Over that stretch he has posted a 1.87 ERA and 1.04 ERA with 26 punchouts over 33.2 frames. Manoah's season numbers now sit at a 7-1 record with a masterful 1.81 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 61 strikeouts in 69.2 innings over 11 starts.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Strong outing in win

    Manoah (6-1) earned the win Thursday, striking out five in 7.2 innings while allowing three runs on six hits and a walk in an 8-3 victory over the White Sox.

    Manoah cruised through the first seven innings, allowing just three singles and a walk and needing only 83 pitches to complete the frames. After retiring the first batter of the eighth, three of the next four White Sox hit safely and Manoah was replaced. The former West Virginia Mountaineer continues to impress in his sophomore season and has not allowed more than three runs in any of his 10 starts while pitching six innings or more in nine of those appearances. His next start will likely come in the middle of next week in Kansas City.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Fans nine in no-decision

    Manoah allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits across six innings in Friday's win over the Angels. He struck out nine and did not factor in the decision.

    The two earned runs against Manoah came in the form of solo homers by Jared Walsh and Tyler Wade in the third and fifth innings, respectively. It was the first time he's allowed multiple home runs in one start since June 19 of last season. The 24-year-old has yet to allow more than two earned runs in any of his nine starts in 2022. Manoah has registered a 1.77 ERA with an impressive 52:9 K:BB through 56 frames. He's projected to face the White Sox at home next week.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Earns fifth win

    Manoah (5-1) picked up the win against the Reds on Saturday, allowing one run on seven hits over eight innings. He struck out four and did not issue a walk.

    While the strikeouts were modest in this one, Manoah was in control throughout. He limited the damage to a Joey Votto RBI double in the fourth inning, and Manoah probably could have pitched a complete game, but manager Charlie Montoyo made the call to lift Manoah at 83 pitches. The right-hander has been one of the best pitchers in all of baseball this season, turning in seven quality starts in eight trips to the mound so far.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Handed first loss

    Manoah (4-1) yielded three runs (one earned) on five hits over six innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Rays.

    Manoah rolled through five shutout innings before the Rays finally broke through in the sixth. They scored all three runs in the inning, including an RBI single from Ji-Man Choi. It was the first time this season that Manoah gave up more than two runs in an outing but his ERA dropped slightly to 1.71 through 42 frames. He's projected to face the Reds at home next weekend.
