Tigers' Matt Manning: Earns second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Optioned to Triple-A after start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Manning to Triple-A Toledo following Friday's 4-2 loss to the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

The righty took the loss Friday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks in five innings of work. Manning also struck out three batters. It was a solid effort after he failed to complete four innings in consecutive outings, but his big-league ERA through five starts is a rough 6.95. Manning was sent down to make a start with the Triple-A club during the All-Star break.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Labors through 2.2 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning allowed two runs on seven hits and a walk in 2.2 innings versus the White Sox on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander needed 60 pitches (38 strikes) to get through the appearance, which was the shortest of his four starts so far. Both runs allowed came in the third inning. Manning now has a 7.94 ERA through 17 innings, although that ratio is inflated by a nine-run shellacking by Cleveland in his previous start. He's added a 1.76 WHIP and 6:5 K:BB, both of which are discouraging marks for the 23-year-old. He lines up for an easier matchup versus Minnesota in next weekend's four-game series.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Shelled for second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning (1-2) allowed nine runs on nine hits across 3.2 innings to take the loss Monday against Cleveland. He struck out two and did not issue any walks.

The lack of walks is nice, but it was otherwise a forgettable outing for Manning, who gave up both a two-run home run and a three-run bomb. The rookie was better in his first two MLB starts, allowing a total of four runs across 10.2 innings. However, he now has just six strikeouts in 14.1 MLB innings after logging an 8.07 ERA in seven Triple-A starts, so he has not been dominating in the manner he did at Double-A in 2019 (2.56 ERA in 133.2 innings).

Tigers' Matt Manning: Solid in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout in 5.2 innings, earning the win over St. Louis on Wednesday.

Manning has put in a pair of similar efforts across his first two major-league starts, although he was able to come away with a win after taking a loss in his debut on June 17. The 23-year-old threw 52 of his 80 pitches for strikes in Wednesday's win. The right-hander lines up for a road start in Cleveland next week should he stay in the rotation, which is likely with Spencer Turnbull (forearm) and Matthew Boyd (triceps) expected out through the All-Star break.

Tigers' Matt Manning: To remain in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning will make his second big-league start Wednesday against the Cardinals, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Manning made his major-league debut Thursday, and he fared pretty well by limiting the Angels to two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings. He was charged with the loss but took on a fairly normal workload by throwing 77 pitches. After the game, manager A.J. Hinch confirmed that Manning will remain in the rotation to make the second start of his career, and he should have the chance to prove he deserves to stay in a starting role long term.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Promoted for MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning will be called up from Triple-A Toledo to start Thursday's game against the Angels.

The 23-year-old was already listed as the probable starter for Thursday's contest, and he's now been added to the big-league roster. Manning has struggled at Triple-A this season with an 8.07 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB across 32.1 innings, but he'll nonetheless receive the opportunity to illustrate why he's the organization's top pitching prospect.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Confirmed as Thursday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers list Manning as their probable starter for Thursday's series opener against the Angels in Los Angeles, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Manning's addition to Detroit's taxi squad a day earlier was already a strong hint that his call-up from Triple-A Toledo was imminent, and Petzold's report seemingly confirms as much. With Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal having graduated from prospect status, Manning is the clear top pitching prospect in the organization, but the Tigers ideally would have wanted him to turn in some better results for Toledo before summoning him to the big leagues. Over his seven outings at Triple-A, Manning posted an 8.07 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 36:10 K:BB in 32.1 innings, though he turned in his best start of the season his last time out June 9, when he limited Louisville to two runs while striking out eight and issuing two walks over six frames. While the Tigers are hoping Manning can be a key piece in their rotation for years to come, his first stint in the majors may only last as long as Spencer Turnbull (forearm) and Matthew Boyd (triceps) are on the injured list.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Expected to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning joined the Tigers' taxi squad Tuesday and is likely to start Thursday's game against the Angels, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The acclaimed pitching prospect will be making his major-league debut despite struggling to the tune of a 8.07 ERA in seven starts with Triple-A Toledo this season. That being said, his most recent outing was one of his best -- a six-inning, two-run effort with eight strikeouts June 9.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Yields three homers in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning fanned six batters but allowed three homers in his five-inning season debut at Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

All told, Manning allowed six hits, five runs and a walk over his five innings. He found the strike zone with 51 of his 80 pitches but was obviously done in by the long ball. He'll look to build on the effort in his next start and remains a candidate for a rotation spot later in the summer if he can remain healthy.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Set for Triple-A debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning is set to start Tuesday's season opener for Triple-A Toledo, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This isn't much of a surprise, as Manning is considered the team's top pitching prospect and he's expected to make his MLB debut sometime this summer, so he should headline the staff in Toledo while he's there. There isn't a definitive timeline for the 23-year-old to reach the majors, but he can help his cause by getting off to a hot start for the Mud Hens.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Sent to MiLB camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers optioned Manning to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

The 2016 first-round pick had been given the opportunity to compete for a rotation spot this spring, but since the Tigers have yet to start his MLB service clock, the prevailing expectation was that he would begin the year in the minors. Tuesday's transaction confirms that will be the case, though Manning could still appear in Grapefruit League games as he looks to build back up after a forearm strain cost him time in 2020. He'll likely remain at the Tigers' spring-training facility in Lakeland, Fla. for another month before reporting to Toledo when the Triple-A season begins in May.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Logs two scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning pitched two scoreless innings in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies. He allowed one hit and struck out one.

Manning threw 25 pitches (16 for strikes) and was effective in his spring debut. The 23-year-old is one of the team's top prospects and will compete for a rotation spot to begin the season, though he could begin the year in the minors and make his MLB debut later in the summer.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Will debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning will make his Grapefruit League debut Wednesday, pitching after Daniel Norris, Jason Beck of reports.

Manning is one of the team's best prospects and is closing in on his MLB debut, though it's likely to happen sometime in the summer rather than right out of spring training. The 23-year-old will still be looking to make a good impression during his Grapefruit League action, and he could be an impact arm whenever he does reach the majors. He posted a 2.56 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 148 strikeouts across 133.2 innings in 2019 with Double-A Erie, then spent last season at the Tigers' alternate training site.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Working on new pitch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning has been developing a new, sharp breaking ball, which could be classed as either a slider or a cutter, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old righty already had quite a high ceiling, and the existence of a third offspeed pitch to pair with his plus curveball and above-average changeup could potentially push it even higher. It's of course no guarantee the pitch works as well as Manning hopes, however, and he'll come with question marks this season even if it does, as he could have been on a path to debut last year but was shut down with a strained right forearm. While he feels 100 percent now, it's certainly possible the issue returns.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Unlikely to start season in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning is likely to start the season in the minors, according to executive vice president of baseball operations Al Avila, Jason Beck of reports.

The Tigers protected the right-hander from the Rule 5 draft in November by placing him on the 40-man roster. While a lot of plans can evolve leading up to and during spring training, Manning currently appears to be a long shot to break camp with the big club. With that being said, the 22-year-old figures to have a solid chance of making his major-league debut at some point in 2021.

Tigers' Matt Manning: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manning had his contract selected by the Tigers on Friday.

The 22-year-old is the Tigers' top pitching prospect, so it's not much of a surprise the organization opted to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. Manning made 24 starts at Double-A Erie in 2019 and had a 2.56 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 148:38 K:BB over 133.2 innings and spent the 2020 campaign at the alternate training site before being shut down in late August with a forearm strain. The right-hander shouldn't have any issues being ready for spring training and could be competing for a spot on the Opening Day roster.
