Toronto is in trouble due to the sluggish performance of Alec Manoa (25).
the official major league media
said on the 28th (Korean time)
Manoa seems to have fallen 1,000 miles from when he ranked third in the American League Cy Young Award voting.
He was expected to become the face of the franchise as an ace that Toronto had raised himself.
Manoa debuted in the major leagues in 2021 and is a starting pitcher with a career record of 28 wins and 18 losses with a 3.32 ERA in 70 games (395⅔ innings).
He is well known to Korean fans as he sought a lot of advice from Ryu Hyun-jin during his rookie days.
he played in 31 games (196⅔ innings) with a 16-7 loss and ERA of 2.24
and was selected as an American League All-Star and ranked 3rd in the Cy Young Young vote and 17th in the MVP vote.
he fell into a shocking slump this season. 토토사이트
Manoa struggled greatly with an average ERA of 5.87 with 3 wins and 9 losses in 19 games (87⅓ innings) and eventually went down to the minor leagues on the 12th again following last June.
Manoa went down to Triple A on the 12th
but instead of joining the Bisons (Triple A team under Toronto)
he stayed in Toronto for a long time.
Toronto explained that they were ‘looking at a physically appropriate time
but it’s kind of odd given the current race to the postseason and that Manoa is a sixth starter.
The reason why Toronto sent Manoa down to the minor leagues late was because Toronto conducted a physical examination.
General manager Ross Atkins said
I wanted to make sure Manoa was in top shape before he went down to the minor leagues.
Before he went to Buffalo
he had the opportunity to work with our very thorough medical staff in Toronto.”
“We’re seeing a lot of positives
We saw a really positive trend.
I think there are several scenarios where Alec could still be here or he could be in the big leagues at some point this year.
But there have been so many positives in his career and we still have a lot of reasons to believe he can bounce back.”
at this point
Manoa’s sluggishness is the reality Toronto faces.
Ryu Hyun-jin has been active in 5 games (24 innings) with an average ERA of 2.25 in 5 games (24 innings)
filling Manoa’s void well
but considering Toronto’s future
whether or not Manoa will rebound can be an important variable.
Ryu Hyun-jin will become a free agent after 2023.
The team’s number one prospect
isn’t a surefire constant yet.
Can Toronto confidently write Manoa’s name as one of their five starting pitchers next spring, or will they bring in another veteran pitcher?
Careers can be turned upside down in an instant.
Manoa may rebound again.
When that time comes
it will be an unbelievable story now.
this season has become a season of unexpected twists
emphasizing that Manoa’s future is uncertain.
