Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Sim game on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (back) is scheduled to throw 60-to-75 pitches in a simulated game Monday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 23-year-old was previously expected to rejoin the rotation Monday, but he'll instead throw one more simulated game before potentially being activated. If all goes well in the sim game, Manoah could be back with Toronto to start Saturday's contest versus Kansas City.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Won't start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (back) won't return from the injured list early next week, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Manoah had initially hoped that he'd be able to return to the Blue Jays in time to start Monday's series opener in Boston, but he'll instead make a simulated start in Florida on Monday. It's not yet clear when the right-hander will be able to return from the injured list.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Targeting Monday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (back) hopes to return to the starting rotation Monday in Boston, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Manoah suffered a right back bruise after he slipped on the dugout steps recently, but he's been optimistic that he'll only miss one turn through the rotation. He felt fine after playing catch in recent days, but Thomas Hatch will be available as a backup option in case the right-hander isn't ready to return.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Only expected to miss one start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (back) is only expected to miss one turn in the rotation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Manoah hit the injured list Monday with a bruised back that he suffered after slipping on the dugout steps. He felt fine after playing catch, so he should be ready to return after a minimum-length stay. Thomas Hatch will start in his absence Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Moves to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a right back bruise.

The young right-hander was slated to start Tuesday versus the Red Sox, but he recently suffered a back contusion and will require a stint on the injured list. Thomas Hatch and Anthony Kay are in the mix to fill Manoah's spot in the rotation. Manoah was still able to play catch Monday, so he may not be looking at a lengthy absence.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Could miss Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah recently suffered a back contusion and may miss his scheduled start against the Red Sox on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

Manoah recently slipped on the dugout steps and landed on his back, so his next turn through the rotation is in jeopardy. While the right-hander was able to play catch Monday, manager Charlie Montoyo said that Thomas Hatch or Anthony Kay could be candidates to fill in if Manoah is unable to pitch.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Early exit in first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (2-1) took the loss Friday as the Blue Jays fell 7-1 to the Rays, allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out nine.

The rookie flashed his dominance as nine of his 11 outs came via strikeout, but Manoah had trouble finding the zone regularly -- he threw 48 of 88 pitches for strikes before exiting -- and also plunked two more batters, giving him four HBP through his first 40.1 big-league innings. Despite a few bumpy outings, he'll take a 2.90 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 52:15 K:BB into the All-Star break.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Thursday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah won't start Thursday against the Orioles after the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Thursday's contest will be made up as part of a doubleheader in September, but Manoah will take the mound in Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. The right-hander has allowed an unearned run on seven hits and three walks while striking out 16 in 13 innings across his last two starts.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Excellent against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (2-0) earned the win Friday against the Rays after tossing seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits and a walk while fanning 10.

The 10 strikeouts were a season-high mark for the 2019 first-round pick, who looked impressive in his first outing since serving a five-game suspension. He's now tossed two straight scoreless outings while allowing one earned run or fewer in four of his last five appearances. The sample size remains relatively small, but he owns a strong 2.70 ERA in his first seven outings as a big leaguer. He's slated to pitch again next week on the road against the Orioles.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Reinstated ahead of Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (suspension) was reinstated to the Blue Jays' active roster and is slated to start Friday against the Rays, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

The 23-year-old received a five-game ban for intentionally throwing at Maikel Franco back on June 19, and the right-hander will rejoin the active roster after serving the suspension. Manoah has a 3.34 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 33:11 K:BB across 29.2 innings this season, and he's coming off a strong start versus Baltimore in which he allowed only an unearned run over six frames.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Accepts five-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah accepted his five-game suspension Saturday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

Manoah initially appealed his suspension for intentionally throwing at Maikel Franco, but he'll begin serving his punishment Saturday. The right-hander started Friday's contest, and he'll be eligible to return July 2. Steven Matz (illness) is slated to return next week, so he'll likely start early in the week since Manoah tentatively lines up to start at home against the Rays on Friday.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Sharp in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Orioles, allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out six.

The rookie right-hander was in line for his second big-league win when he exited the game after 97 pitches (69 strikes), but an eighth-inning meltdown by the Jays' bullpen instead forced Manoah to settle for his third quality start in six trips to the mound. It was a strong rebound effort after he served up four homers to the O's in his last outing, and the 23-year-old will take a 3.34 ERA and 33:11 K:BB through 29.2 innings into his next start.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Receives suspension, will appeal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah has received a five-game suspension and undisclosed fine for intentionally throwing at Maikel Franco during Saturday's game against Baltimore, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The league has determined that Manoah purposely hit Franco, though nobody outside the Blue Jays' clubhouse truly knows the right-hander's intentions. Per Keegan Matheson of MLB.com, Manoah will appeal the suspension, and depending on how long the league takes to make a decision, he'll likely still be eligible to make his scheduled Thursday start against the Orioles.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Done in by long ball Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah worked 3.1 innings and served up five runs on four hits -- all home runs -- and a walk while striking out six in Saturday's game against the Orioles. He didn't factor into the decision in Toronto's 10-7 win.

Manoah's day ended early after he was ejected in the fourth inning for hitting Maikel Franco with a pitch, but Toronto likely wouldn't have kept him in the game much longer anyway due to his struggles to rein in the long ball. Fortunately for Manoah, only one of the four home runs he allowed came with a runner on base, sparing him of major damage to his season-long ERA. He now sports a 4.18 ERA to go with a 1.14 WHIP and a 27:9 K:BB in 23.2 innings through his first five starts in the majors.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Turns in strong showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out five across six innings in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Red Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.

Manoah made a mistake in the bottom of the third inning, surrendering an RBI double to left field, but he held Boston in check the rest of his start. He's now looked strong in back-to-back outings, surrendering just two earned runs across 11 total frames while punching out nine. Manoah's next outing tentatively lines up for Saturday in Baltimore.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Bounces back in five-inning start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah tossed five innings against the White Sox on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four. He did not factor in the decision.

After getting lit up by the Marlins in his last turn, Manoah showed some resilience by posting a solid outing against a strong White Sox offense Wednesday. He gave up an unearned run in the first inning as the result of an error and passed ball prior to a Yoan Moncada single, then kept Chicago off the board until Nick Madrigal tagged him for run-scoring double in the fifth. Through three big-league starts, Manoah has posted a 3.14 ERA and 16:7 K:BB across 14.1 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Monday at Boston.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Hit hard by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Marlins, surrendering four runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out five.

In his second MLB start, Manoah had his worst outing as a pro on a rainy night in Buffalo, but a ninth-inning rally by Toronto got him off the hook for a loss. The 23-year-old threw 50 of 74 pitches for strikes before exiting, and his rotation spot remains secure given the Blue Jays' lack of alternatives. Manoah will take a 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 12:5 K:BB through 9.1 innings into his next start.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Impresses in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (1-0) fired six scoreless innings on two hits and two walks while striking out seven to earn the win over the Yankees on Thursday.

In his MLB debut, Manoah looked like a veteran, striking out more batters (7) than baserunners allowed (4). It took him just 88 pitches -- 60 were strikes -- to get through six innings. The 23-year-old had a 0.50 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 18 innings in the minors this season, prompting his call-up. He ranks as the 96th overall prospect in baseball and a top-five prospect in the Blue Jays' system, according to MLB Pipeline.

May 27, 2021 01:56 PM
Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Officially called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Manoah's major-league debut was pushed back a day after Wednesday's game was postponed, but he'll start Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees. Manoah made three starts for Triple-A Buffalo to begin the season and posted a 0.50 ERA and 0.56 WHIP in 18 innings. He could have the chance to earn the fifth spot in the rotation after Anthony Kay was recently sent to the minors.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Blue Jays-Yankees postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah won't make his MLB debut Wednesday in New York after the Blue Jays-Yankees game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Though the Blue Jays confirmed Manoah would be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to start Wednesday's game, the team never made the transaction official before the contest was postponed. Expect Manoah to get a formal call-up Thursday, when the Blue Jays and Yankees will reconvene for a doubleheader. Manoah will likely take the hill for one of the games, while Robbie Ray presumably starts the other.
