First career start !


First career start !

Out of pitchers, Blue Jays brought up Alek Manoah, a 23 year old with only 35 innings pitched in the minors.

He started the first game of a double header vs the Yankees today...

He walked the first hitter he faced in 4 pitches... but was then almost untouchable and dominant...

In is first inning he had Aaron Judge look like a 4 year old at the plate....

6 Ip 2hits (bloops singles) 2W 7 Ko, 0 runs

Blue Jays wins 2-0....

Rarely was I so Impressed by somebody like that....

That guy will be a fixture for some years...

Bleu Jays really have a very fun lineup to watch...

Re: First career start !

The thing that you have to wonder about is that low ip in the minors , you know how it is with pitchers and injuries. Not a matter of if but when.
