  • Alek Manoah Scratched From Sunday's Start Due To Injury

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah (shoulder) experienced some right-shoulder soreness during his last bullpen session in camp and will not make his scheduled Grapefruit League start on Sunday as a result. Manoah had an MRI exam on Friday that didn't show any structural damage, though, and the team is considering him day-to-day. It doesn't sound too serious, but this should raise more eyebrows than normal after Manoah's disastrous 2023 campaign when he also dealt with arm issues and was demoted to the minors twice. The 26-year-old wasn't sharp in his spring opener on Tuesday, either, hitting three batters in 1 2/3 innings. A bounce-back could be coming if Manoah is healthy and mentally right, but he's currently outside of RotoBaller's top-100 rankings for starting pitchers.

  • Jays' Manoah hits 3 batters in rocky first start

    Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah had a rough afternoon, hitting three batters and throwing just 17 of 38 pitches for strikes against the Tigers, but he said he came away feeling good about his velocity in his first spring training start.

  • Alek Manoah Testing Out New Cutter

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Alek Manoah is testing out a new cutter this spring as he looks to bounce back from an extremely difficult 2023 season. The 26-year-old worked to a 5.87 ERA and a bloated 14.2% BB% across 19 starts in the big leagues last season after finishing third in AL Cy Young voting in the 2022 season thanks to a 2.24 ERA across 31 starts. Manoah spent time at the team's spring training facility a season ago to get back on track but also refused to report to Triple-A Buffalo after an unsuccessful return to the big leagues. Manoah has previously featured a four-seam fastball, a sinker, a changeup, and a slider to this point as his cutter could be another avenue for him to get back on track in 2024. His fantasy value has obviously taken a major hit after the 2023 campaign.

    After struggling to a 3-9 record last season, Blue Jays pitcher Alek Manoah is looking forward to a bounce-back season in Toronto.

  • Alek Manoah Looking Good, Has Trimmed Down

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    Toronto Blue Jays manager John Schneider said that right-hander Alek Manoah's delivery "is in a really good spot right now" and "his mental state of mind is right where it should be." In addition, he appears to have trimmed down his body since the end of what was a nightmarish 2023 season for him. In addition to terrible results that caused the Blue Jays to demote him to the minors twice, Manoah dealt with shoulder and mental issues last season. He appears to be fully healthy now, though, and ready to bounce back with another shot at a rotation spot in Toronto in the big leagues. The former first-rounder will be worth a gamble at a lower cost in fantasy drafts after he was a first-time All-Star in 2022 and finished third in the American League Cy Young voting.

  • Alek Manoah Still Has Inside Track On Rotation Spot

    The fifth spot in the Toronto Blue Jays' starting rotation behind Kevin Gausman, Jose Berrios, Chris Bassitt and Yusei Kikuchi will be a competition between Alek Manoah, Bowden Francis and potentially Cuban right-hander Yariel Rodriguez, but MLB's Keegan Matheson thinks that Manoah still has the inside track on the job. The 26-year-old Manoah dealt with a shoulder injury and has a nightmarish 2023 campaign just a year after making his first All-Star team. He was demoted to the minors two different times and ultimately finished with a 5.87 ERA (6.01 FIP), a 1.74 WHIP, 59 walks and 79 strikeouts in 87 1/3 big-league innings over 19 starts. If he's fully healthy this spring and shows better results, Manoah's fantasy value should slowly start to tick back up as a potential low-cost value play.

  • Blue Jays Turning Away Trade Interest In Alek Manoah, Expect Him To Be In 2024 Rotation

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    The Blue Jays have heard from teams looking to buy low on right-hander Alek Manoah following a disastrous 2023 season throughout the winter, but Jon Morosi of MLB Network tweets that the Jays have been telling interested parties they expect Manoah to be in the 2024 rotation and do not plan to move him.

  • Blue Jays Have No Plans To Move Alek Manoah

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    Teams have asked the Toronto Blue Jays about right-hander Alek Manoah's availability via trade, but sources say that the Blue Jays are telling clubs they have no plans to move him. Manoah has had a very good offseason of workouts and is fully expected to be in the team's starting rotation to begin the year after struggling and being demoted to the minors twice in 2023. The 26-year-old was also dealing with some arm issues last season, which hopefully explains most of his problems just a year removed from an All-Star campaign. The former first-rounder will come at a discount in fantasy drafts this spring, and managers that take a shot on Manoah will be hoping he can return to his dominant form in 2022, when he had a 2.24 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and a career-high 180 strikeouts in 31 starts.

  • Blue Jays The Favorites To Land Juan Soto

    Headshot for Alek Manoah

    The Toronto Blue Jays have intensified their talks with the San Diego Padres for outfielder Juan Soto and are now considered the favorites to trade for him this offseason, perhaps this week in Tennessee at the winter meetings. Negotiations between the Padres and New York Yankees have stalled due to the prospects package the Padres are asking for. Right-hander Alek Manoah, an All-Star in 2022 who struggled mightily in 2023, would likely be part of the package, but the Blue Jays have several other high-end pitching prospects that San Diego would likely try to pry away, too. Already one of the most talented all-around hitters in baseball, the 25-year-old Soto's fantasy value would be through the roof if he were to move to hitter-friendly Rogers Centre and the American League East.
