The Blue Jays are going to promote Alek Manoah to start Wednesday’s game against the Yankees. might as well just throw him straight into the fire. Since we don’t get to play the Orioles anytime soon (stupid schedule), might as well put him in against the Yankees.
Manoah has made 3 starts for the Bisons. He has a 0.50 ERA. In 18 innings, he’s allowed 7 hits, 1 home run, 3 walks, and 27 strikeouts.
I think, in a perfect world, we’d give him a few more starts in AAA but sometimes you play the hand you are dealt.
