Manaea (7-6) earned the win Thursday against the Mariners after allowing one run on three hits and three walks while fanning 13 across seven innings.
The 13 strikeouts represented a season high for Manaea, and it was also the third time this season he struck out at least 10 batters. The left-hander has fanned at least six in six straight outings, a span during which he has posted three quality starts with a 3.57 ERA through 35.1 innings. His next start is scheduled for next week on the road against the Padres.
Manaea took the no-decision in Friday's 5-4 win over Cleveland, allowing three runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts in 5.1 innings.
Manaea held Cleveland scoreless through four innings but allowed a Roberto Perez solo home run in the fifth and permitted three baserunners and one run in the sixth before departing. The lefty broke out of his four-start losing streak and has now allowed three runs or less in 10 of his last 11 starts, pitching to a 3.28 ERA on the season.
Manaea will start Friday's game against Cleveland, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chris Bassitt was initially slated to pitch the series opener, with Manaea set to toe the rubber Saturday. The A's will instead go with the southpaw Friday followed by Frankie Montas on Saturday. The shuffle is possibly due to Bassitt throwing 24 pitches in Tuesday's All-Star Game, though the club has yet to officially comment on the change. Bassitt could still be in line to start Sunday's series finale.
Manaea (6-6) allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and no walks while striking out six across 6.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against Houston.
Manaea was undone by two home runs, with a three-run shot by Jose Altuve being the big blow. However, he was fairly solid otherwise and was able to work deep into the game to offset the damage. Though he's now taken a loss in each of of his last four outings, Manaea has maintained a 3.91 ERA with 30 strikeouts across 23 innings in that span. Overall, he has a 3.19 ERA with a 108:25 K:BB across 104.1 frames on the campaign.
Manaea (6-5) took the loss Thursday against Texas, allowing four runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings. He had six strikeouts.
Home runs by Nate Lowe and Joey Gallo in the fourth and fifth innings broke things open for the Rangers, who managed to put 10 runners on base against Manaea on the day. It was the third straight loss for the lefty despite a 24:6 KK:BB over 16.1 innings during that stretch. He'll take a 3.13 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into his next scheduled start, projected to come next week in Houston.
Manaea (6-4) suffered the loss against San Francisco on Friday despite allowing only one run on three hits and three walks across six innings. He struck out seven.
The left-hander pitched well in the battle of Bay Area teams, but he was outdueled by Giants starter Johnny Cueto, who held Oakland scoreless over seven frames. Manaea finished with his seventh straight start of three or fewer runs, and he has lowered his ERA from 4.40 to 2.91 since a disastrous two-inning, seven-run appearance against Boston on May 13. He is on pace for a career-best 9.3 K/9 and 0.8 HR/9, helping him to his finest campaign to date. Manaea's next start is lined up to come at home against the Rangers next week.
Manaea (6-3) allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out 11 in 5.1 innings to take the loss against the Yankees on Sunday.
Manaea had earned wins in each of his last three starts, and he allowed one run in 20.2 innings during that time. Although he racked up a season-high 11 strikeouts Sunday, he couldn't get enough run support from the Athletics in the low-scoring contest. The southpaw has now posted a 3.01 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 86.2 innings this year. He tentatively lines up to make his next start on the road against San Francisco on Friday.
Manaea (6-2) allowed one run on nine hits and a walk over 5.2 innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over the Angels.
Manaea had to escape threats with multiple baserunners in the first, second and fourth innings, but the only run to score against him was a solo shot by Juan Lagares. Despite it not being his most effective outing, the 29-year-old earned his third straight win and has allowed one or fewer runs in each of his last five appearances. He lowered his season ERA to 2.99 alongside a 78:19 K:BB. Manaea is lined up to face the Yankees on the road this weekend.
Manaea (5-2) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out three in six scoreless innings, earning the win in Wednesday's 4-0 victory over the Diamondbacks.
The lefty entered an enticing matchup (at home against the Diamondbacks) and didn't disappoint. Manaea labored a bit through the first couple innings, but he made it through six innings on 111 pitches and lowered his ERA to 3.09. He's been superb of late while allowing just two earned runs over 26.2 innings in his last four starts, and he's expected to next pitch Monday against the Angels.
Manaea (4-2) earned the win over Seattle on Wednesday, hurling nine scoreless frames while allowing four hits and two walks. He struck out eight.
This was technically Manaea's second shutout of the season -- he tossed seven scoreless innings in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Twins in April. The southpaw was sharp Wednesday, inducing 19 swinging strikes and holding the Mariners without an extra-base hit. Over his past three starts, Manaea has allowed only two runs in 20.2 frames while posting a 22:7 K:BB. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which is lined up to come at home against Arizona next week.
Manaea hurled 6.2 innings against the Angels on Friday, yielding one run on six hits and three walks while striking out eight. He did not factor in the decision.
The southpaw was impressive in the outing, keeping the Angels from scoring until the seventh frame. Opposing pitcher Shohei Ohtani put up a strong performance of his own, however, preventing Manaea from ending up in the win column. Still, it was a promising outing for Manaea, who racked up 17 swinging strikes en route to his sixth quality start of the season. He is tentatively slated to make his next start at Seattle on Wednesday.
Manaea allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings against the Angels on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision.
Manaea held the Angels' hitters in check over five innings. The only run scored against him came in the fourth on an RBI groundout by Jared Walsh. It was a much-needed performance for the 29-year-old Manaea after a pair of rough outings in which he was lit up for 10 runs on 20 hits over eight combined innings. He'll take a 4.17 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 54:11 K:BB over 54 innings into his next start.
Manaea allowed three earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out three across six innings Tuesday against the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.
Manaea survived with a quality start despite surrendering 10 hits -- including two doubles and a solo home run. He wasn't deceiving opposing hitters, as he generated only seven swinging strikes across 91 total pitches. Manaea maintains a 4.41 ERA and 1.33 WHIP across 49 innings this season, but has allowed double-digit baserunners in each of his last two outings while racking up only five strikeouts across eight combined frames. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, projected to come Sunday at the Angels.
Manaea (3-2) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Red Sox after giving up seven runs on 10 hits and a walk while fanning two across two innings.
Manaea had recorded six straight starts of at least five innings, but pitched his shortest outing of the campaign Thursday while recording season-worst marks in hits and runs allowed, and his two strikeouts represent a season-low figure as well. The left-hander will attempt to bounce back in his next start, scheduled for next week at home against the Astros.
Manaea completed 7.1 innings against Tampa Bay on Friday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out 10. He did not factor in the decision.
For six innings, Manaea looked like he could be in for a special night, as the southpaw retired 18 straight Rays batters. The potential perfect game came to an end on a leadoff walk in the seventh inning, but Manaea still entered the eighth with a no-hitter intact. Tampa Bay quickly struck for a run on a double and a single, however, and Manaea soon exited the game with no chance for a win. Despite the disappointing ending, there was plenty to like about the veteran hurler's performance; among other highlights, he struck out a season-high 10 batters and notched his fourth quality start of the campaign. Manaea has now given up one or fewer runs in four of his seven starts, leading to a steady 3.07 ERA. His next start will likely take place in Boston on Thursday.
Manaea didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Orioles. He allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out five across five innings.
Manaea ended his winning streak at three starts, and this outing was a step in the wrong direction given how good he'd been pitching of late. He had allowed a combined four earned runs over his previous 24 innings (four starts) before Sunday's appearance. The left-hander owns a strong 3.48 ERA, however, and he will try to return to his winning ways in his next scheduled start, tabbed for next week at home against the Rays.
Manaea (3-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over five innings in a 2-1 victory over the Rays. He struck out six.
The lefty won his third straight decision but wasn't efficient enough to rack up his fourth straight quality start, exiting the game after 100 pitches (61 strikes). Manaea will take a 2.83 ERA and 28:7 K:BB through 28.2 innings into his next outing Saturday at home against the Orioles.
Manaea (2-1) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins, allowing six hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings while striking out seven.
Only two runners even got past second base against the southpaw, who tossed 66 of 95 pitches for strikes while going the distance. Manaea will carry a 3.04 ERA and 22:5 K:BB through 23.2 innings into his next start, set for Monday in Tampa Bay.
Manaea (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits while striking out seven over six innings to get the win Thursday over the Tigers.
The lefty was dealing Thursday, fanning seven en route to recording a quality start. The 29-year-old threw 58 of his 82 pitches for strikes, delivering a highly effective outing for the second consecutive start after struggling in his season debut back on April 4. He'll next draw the Twins on Tuesday.
Manaea tossed six innings against the Astros on Friday, allowing one run on six hits and one walk while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision.
Manaea rebounded from a rough first start against the same Astros club, during which he yielded five earned runs and didn't get out of the fifth inning. The southpaw was much more effective the second time around, allowing only a fourth-inning run and making it through six frames. Manaea is next lined up to face Detroit at home next Friday.
