Manoah is on his way back! Has phenomenal game in Triple-A

Published May 1, 2024 at 10:49

Toronto Blue Jays' former Ace, Alek Manoah ties his career best with 12 Strikeouts in an outstanding Triple-A rehab assignment against Top Prospect Paul Skenes.

Alek Manoah was facing off against Paul Skenes, MLB's #3 prospect and boyfriend of social media star and LSU Gymnast, Olivia Dunn.

Paul Skenes and Alek Manoah matched up tonight in AAA:
- Manoah: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 12 K
- Skenes: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 7 K

The 26-year-old delivered six solid innings, tallying 12 strikeouts with just two walks, two hits. He also only gave up 1 Run.

What great to see his his velocity returning back to form, with a sinker topping out at 95.9 MPH.

"Best Alek Manoah has looked on rehab so far. Getting good chase low/backfoot with slider, keeping sinker to edge reasonably well." - Murphy

Manoah's insane 12 strikeouts ties a career high in his pro career. The last time he did this was back in October 2021 against the Baltimore Orioles.

Manoah is showing the signs we have all been waiting for. If he continues this type of play, a call-up seems inevitable. It is good timing because it's worth noting that Manoah's 30-day rehab window is set to end on Monday.
