Alec Manoa, who followed Ryu Hyun-jin as a mentor,토토사이트 was effectively ruled out for the season. Although there is no problem with his body, it was decided that it would be better to have him prepare for the next season rather than having him sit on the mound for the remaining period. Manoa, who finished third in the American League’s Cy Young Award last year, was an All-Star pitcher, and was the starting pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays’ opening game this year, was reduced to a player who was not at his best.

On the 13th (Korean time), Sportsnet Canada reporter Ben Nicholson-Smith said, “According to sources familiar with the situation at the Toronto team, Manoa has not pitched in over a month. It is increasingly likely that he will not pitch at any level this season.” reported.

There is nothing wrong with his body. According to Sportsnet Canada, Manoa underwent a detailed examination last week. The condition of his knee, right quadriceps, etc. was checked. No damage was found, and Toronto left open the possibility of Manoa appearing in Triple A.

However, an anonymous source said there was little chance of Manoa playing in Triple-A play.

The source said, “Manoa’s physical issues are continuing, so rest and recovery are his priority right now. The possibility of him returning to the mound is not completely gone, but it’s very unlikely. Manoa hasn’t pitched in a month and is now in Triple-A. “There are only two weeks left on the schedule,” he said.

Since his major league debut in 2021, Manoa has recorded 9 wins, 2 losses, and an average ERA of 3.22 in 20 games, raising expectations as the hope of Toronto’s mound.

Last year, his second year, he pitched 196⅔ innings in 31 games and posted an ERA of 2.24 with 16 wins and 7 losses and was selected as an All-Star for the first time since his debut. He followed Justin Verlander (Houston) and Dylan Seeds (White Sox) in the American League Cy Young Award voting. Ranked 3rd. He is expected to finish the season this year with 3 wins, 9 losses, and an ERA of 5.87 in 19 games.

This season, which started off as an ace, was a mess from the start. In the opener, he gave up 5 runs in 3⅓ innings. In the very next game, he pitched 7 scoreless innings to get his first win of the season, but was shut out after failing to complete 5 innings in 2 games in a row. He failed to last five innings in six of his first 12 games after the opener.

In the game against Houston on June 6, he gave up 7 hits and lost 6 points in just ⅓ innings. Toronto decided that it was meaningless for Manoa to remain in the major leagues. He sent him down to the complex league roster, which mainly consisted of rookies, to give him time to reorganize, but even this did not go smoothly. In his first appearance in the complex league, he faced Yankees rookies and was completely destroyed, giving up 11 points.

After appearing in Double A once, he returned to the big leagues in July, and seemed to be making a comeback by pitching 6 innings and allowing 1 run against Detroit on July 8th, his return game. However, he was unable to continue his consistent performance. 4 runs in 3 innings, 3 runs in 5⅓ innings, 1 run in 4⅓ innings, 3 runs in 6⅔ innings, 4 runs in 4 innings. He still often couldn’t last five innings. As Ryu Hyun-jin successfully returned from his second Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament reconstruction surgery), Manoa’s position became increasingly narrow, and he is now on the verge of disappearing.

Sportsnet Canada reported, “Toronto will now operate the team under the assumption that Manoa is not around. This has already been the case over the past few weeks, and it will become increasingly clear in the future. If a replacement starting pitcher is needed, it is likely that they will operate with a bullpen game.” did.
