Blue Jays’ Alek Manoah unlikely to pitch again this season: Report

Article content

It didn’t seem like Alek Manoah would be pitching again anytime soon, but according to a report, Toronto’s opening-day starter is likely done for the season.

Manoah has not pitched since Aug. 10 and while no structural damage to his knee, back or quad was found, “it’s becoming less and less likely” Manoah pitches again in 2023, according to Sportsnet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith.

Manoah went 3-9 with a 5.87 ERA in 19 starts for the Blue Jays this season. A year earlier he finished third in Cy Young Award voting and was an all-star for the first time, going 16-7 with a 2.24 ERA.

The triple-A season is nearly over and Manoah has not thrown off a mound in a month so perhaps building him back up doesn’t make sense at this point.

Manoah had been sent down to the Florida Complex League earlier in the season after he struggled, and also made a start for New Hampshire and Buffalo, but returned to the big club in July and made six appearances, two of them solid, before being sent down again.

Instead of pitching, though, Manoah underwent a slew of tests and that appears to be it for the season.
