Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Guts out quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (7-2) picked up a win after pitching six innings, giving up two runs on five hits and six walks while striking out seven versus the Rays on Monday.

The rookie struggled with his command in this one, walking a career-high six batters. He was able to limit the damage to two RBI singles in the contest, one to Brandon Lowe in the second inning and another to Joey Wendle in the fifth. The 23-year-old has now put together three strong starts in a row after giving up six runs to the Athletics on Sept. 3. Over that stretch he has posted a 2.29 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 21 strikeouts over 19.2 innings. He's lined up to face the Twins in his next start Sunday.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Fans 10 in dominant win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (6-2) picked up the win in Monday's 8-1 rout of the Rays, giving up one hit over eight scoreless innings. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.

The rookie retired 14 straight batters to begin the game before Joey Wendle lined a two-out single in the fifth inning, a knock Manoah avenged by plunking Wendle in the eighth -- the only other baserunner he allowed all night. That HBP may have factored into manager Charlie Montoyo's decision to pull the right-hander after 97 pitches (62 strikes) rather than letting his young ace go for a complete game shutout. Manoah will take a 3.39 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 102:31 K:BB through 93 innings into his next outing.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Falls short of quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Yankees, giving up three runs on five hits and three walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out four.

The right-hander blanked the Yanks through four innings before getting tagged for all three of his runs in the fifth, tying the score at 3-3, and Manoah got the hook in the sixth after a single and a walk to finish with 101 pitches (62 strikes). The rookie's control has been slipping lately and he's issued three free passes in three of his last four starts, but considering he's thrown a career-high 103 innings between Triple-A and the majors in 2021, fatigue could well be a factor. Since the All-Star break, Manoah has a 4.43 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 40:16 K:BB through 44.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Escapes with no-decision Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 11-10 win over the A's, surrendering six runs on five hits and three walks over five-plus innings. He struck out two.

The rookie didn't have his best stuff, getting tagged for two runs in each of the first, fifth and sixth innings before getting the hook after 89 pitches (53 strikes). Manoah has been hit and miss lately, recording four quality starts in his last seven outings but coughing up at least six runs in two of the other three starts in that stretch. His overall numbers remain solid, however; the 23-year-old carries a 3.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 88:28 K:BB through his first 79.1 big-league innings.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Fans eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 3-2 extra-innings win over the Tigers, allowing two runs on four hits over 6.1 innings. He struck out eight without walking a batter.

The rookie took a shutout into the seventh inning before running out of steam, and Manoah exited after 103 pitches (69 strikes) with the Jays still ahead 2-1. Unfortunately, Trevor Richards allowed an inherited runner to score when the infield defense couldn't quite turn an inning-ending double play, denying Manoah his sixth win. He still delivered his second straight quality start and seventh in 14 big-league outings, and he sports a 3.15 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 86:25 K:BB through his first 74.1 big-league innings.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Quality start against ChiSox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 2-1 win over the White Sox, giving up one run on five hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out five.

Making his return from the bereavement list, Manoah dueled Lance Lynn to a 1-1 standstill before exiting after 108 pitches (64 strikes). The rookie has seven quality starts in 13 trips to the mound to begin his big-league career, consistency that has led to a 3.18 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 78:25 K:BB through his first 68 innings for the Jays.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Returns from bereavement leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays reinstated Manoah (personal) from the bereavement list Sunday.

Manoah was away from the Blue Jays for four days while tending to the personal matter, but because his last start came Tuesday and the team has had an off day since then, he didn't miss a turn through the rotation. The rookie right-hander is on track to start Monday's series opener versus the White Sox, and he'll line up for his second turn of the week Aug. 28 in Detroit.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Goes on bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays placed Manoah on the bereavement list Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Per MLB rules, a player must remain on the bereavement list for 3-to-7 days, but it's unclear if Manoah will require more than the minimum amount of time away from the team to tend to the personal matter. If Manoah rejoins Toronto by the start of next week, he would remain on track to make his next start Monday against the White Sox. After posting a 1.53 ERA over a stretch of six consecutive starts, Manoah faltered in Tuesday's 12-6 loss to the Nationals, serving up seven runs (six earned) on six hits and one walk while working a career-low three innings.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Stumbles against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (5-2) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on six hits and a walk over three innings as the Blue Jays fell 12-6 to the Nationals. He struck out two.

The rookie saw his three-game winning streak snapped as he stumbled through his worst outing to date in the majors. Manoah managed only 53 pitches (33 strikes) before getting the hook, but perhaps that's a good thing after he got pushed to 114 pitches last time out. The 23-year-old sports a 3.34 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 73:22 K:BB through his first 12 big-league starts (62 innings).

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Whiffs career-high 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah improved to 5-1 after striking out a career-high 11 and limiting the Angels to two runs on five hits and two walks over 6.2 innings in Wednesday's 10-2 win.

The rookie has emerged victorious in three straight starts, posting a tidy 1.93 ERA over that span while benefiting from some generous run support. Because the Toronto bullpen had been overworked of late, manager Charlie Montoyo allowed Manoah to toss 114 pitches in the outing. Expect the Blue Jays to aim to keep Manoah closer to the 100-pitch mark in his future starts, but his stellar recent form should make him a must-play option in just about every fantasy league at this point.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Carried to fourth win by offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (4-1) picked up the win in Friday's 12-4 rout of the Red Sox, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four.

The rookie wasn't terribly efficient and exited the game in line for a loss after tossing 93 pitches (56 strikes), but the Jays erupted for nine runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to put Manoah in the win column. It was the fifth straight outing in which he's given up two earned runs or less, and the 23-year-old will take a 2.58 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 60:19 K:BB through his first 52.1 big-league innings into his next start.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Delivers seven scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (3-1) earned the win Saturday versus Kansas City after giving up two hits and a walk with four strikeouts over seven shutout innings.

Manoah made his first start since July 9 after dealing with a back injury and surrendered only a pair of singles to the Royals. The right-hander hasn't allowed an earned run in three of his past four outings and has a 0.76 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB across 23.3 innings during that stretch. He has an impressive 2.47 ERA and 0.97 WHIP through his first eight major-league starts and should be a consistent presence in Toronto's rotation down the stretch.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Activated for Saturday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manoah (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list prior to his start Saturday against the Royals.

The rookie posted a 2.90 ERA and 52:15 K:BB in 40.1 innings across eight starts before landing on the injured list July 19 with a bruised back. Manoah will face Kansas City for the first time in his career Saturday. Trent Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo to clear space on the roster.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: On track for Saturday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that Manoah (back) is on track to be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday against the Royals, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

It was reported Monday that Manoah could be activated to start Saturday, and that appears to be closer to a sure thing now. Manoah hasn't pitched since July 9 because of a back bruise suffered when he slipped on the dugout steps.

Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Could start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Manoah (back) could return from the injured list to start Saturday versus the Royals, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

The right-hander was scheduled to throw 60-to-75 pitches in a simulated game Monday, and Montoyo's comments indicate that session went well. If confirmed to start Saturday, Manoah shouldn't face significant workload limitations in his first start off the injured list given Monday's pitch count.

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.
