“Toronto starter Alec Manoa will take the mound in the Major League for the first time against Washington since August 11 last year on the 6th,” he reported.

Manoah, who hails from Florida in the U.S., was drafted by his current team Toronto in the first round of the Major League Rookie Draft in 2019 (No. 11 overall) and entered the professional league. As the rankings of his nominations suggest, Manoah was considered one of the best prospects when he was an amateur. He made his Major League debut just two years later in May 2021.

His performance in the first season of the big league was good with 9 wins and 2 losses and an ERA of 3.22, starting a total of 20 games.

In 2022, he became the first player to play full-time in the Major League. In the same year, Manoah started a total of 31 games and posted 16 wins and seven losses with a 2.24 ERA. He pitched a total of 196.2 innings during the period, proving the pitcher’s capacity as an inning hitter.

With the success of the 2022 season, Manoah took on the heavy responsibility of starting the Toronto opener for the 2023 season. 토토사이트

Was he too nervous? Manoah collapsed by allowing nine hits (two homers) and five runs in just 3.1 innings in the opening game against the St. Louis Cardinals. He seemed to regain confidence by pitching seven scoreless innings against the Kansas City Royals, but allowed three runs in 4.1 innings in his next game, before collapsing again.

Since then, Manoah has no longer been the type of hero that many people expect him to be. Toronto sent Manoah to the rookie league, the lowest level in the minor league, and made a super-strong effort to start all over again. Last year, his major league performance was sluggish with three wins and nine losses with a 5.87 ERA in 19 games.

Manoah, who had failed to join the Major League Baseball’s opening game this year, continued to prepare for his return to the Major League by quenching himself in the Minor League, will eventually return to the big league on Wednesday. Expectations are high on how he will perform on the mound again in about nine months.
