The struggles of Toronto Blue Jays starter Alex Manoah continued on Monday as the former Cy Young Award finalist in 2022 retired just one batter of the nine he faced in his latest rough outing for Toronto.
Manoah was met with boos from the 23,982 in attendance at Rogers Centre during the game in which allowed six runs on seven hits and walked one, and his record fell to 1-7 on the season and his ERA balloon from 5.46 to 6.36 on the season.
Last season, Manoah his wins (16) and ERA (2.24) each ranking third in the American League.
“A lot of things I’ve been working on, I didn’t really have a chance to go out there and use that,” Manoah said following the 11-4 loss to the Houston Astros (via ESPN). “Just got to show up tomorrow and get ready for the next one.”
Blue Jays manager John Schneider told reporters he “thinks” Manoah will make his next scheduled start, but it did not sound like it was locked in.
“When I say that everything is on the table, yeah, everything is,” Schneider said. “We’re just trying to help him get back to the caliber of pitcher that he was.”
