  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Struggles again in loss

    Manoah (1-5) took the loss Thursday, allowing five runs on three hits and five walks over three innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out six.

    Command was an issue for Manoah again Thursday-- he's issued 13 walks over his last three starts (12 innings), raising his BB/9 to 6.4. The 25-year-old right-hander's ERA is up to 5.53 with a 1.79 WHIP and 46:38 K:BB through 11 starts (53.2 innings) this season. Manoah will look to get on track in his next outing, currently lined up for next week at home against the Brewers.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Five strikeouts in no-decision

    Manoah did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk over 5.2 innings during a 6-5 loss to the Orioles. He struck out five.

    Manoah allowed two or fewer runs while completing at least five innings for the fifth time this season, but he still holds a 5.15 ERA and 1.74 WHIP due to a couple of poor outings. The right-hander's 40:33 K:BB over his first 10 starts (50.2 innings) is also worrisome after he posted a 180:51 K:BB over 196.2 innings last year. Either way, Saturday's outing was a step in the right direction, and Manoah will look to continue on that path in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for the finale of a four-game set in Tampa Bay.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Struggles with command in loss

    Manoah (1-4) took the loss Monday, allowing five runs on six hits and seven walks over four innings in a 7-4 loss to the Yankees. He struck out three.

    Manoah walked a season-high seven batters and allowed five or more runs for the third time this year. He currently sports a 5.40 ERA and 1.80 WHIP with an abysmal 35:32 K:BB over 45 innings. The right-hander was one of the best pitchers in the AL last year, posting a 2.24 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 180:51 K:BB over 31 starts (196.2 innings), but he hasn't looked like the same guy to start 2023. Manoah will look to find a rhythm during his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for a three-game weekend set versus Baltimore.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Inefficient in third loss

    Manoah (1-3) took the loss Tuesday as the Blue Jays fell 8-4 to the Phillies, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out one.

    The big right-hander's early season struggles continue, as he generated only three swinging strikes among his 94 pitches. Manoah's slider has regressed significantly -- batters are chasing it less and making more contact with it, and as a result his swinging-strike rate has dropped from 11.2 percent last year to a paltry 8.4 percent through his first eight starts this season. Combine that ineffectiveness with a career-worst 13.1 percent walk rate, and Manoah has been one of the most disappointing pitchers so far in 2023 relative to his ADP. He'll look for answers in his next outing, likely to come early next week at home against the Yankees.
