Major League Baseball (MLB) Toronto Blue Jays sent Alec Manoa to the minor leagues and adjusted the starting rotation to five players.
The Toronto team moved Manoa to the minor league Triple-A Buffalo Bisons on the 12th (Korean time) and added bullpen pitcher Hagen Danner to the roster.메이저놀이터
Manoa went down to the minor leagues one day after recording 4 runs, 4 hits, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts in 4 innings against the Cleveland Guardians the previous day (11th).
This is the second time Manoa has been demoted to the minor leagues this season.
Manoa, who was previously dropped as the starting pitcher for the opening game, went to the rookie league in early June for reorganization as his sluggish run continued with an average ERA of 6.36 with 1 win and 7 losses in 13 games.
Manoa, who came up to the major leagues again a month later, pitched with ups and downs and fell short of expectations with 2 wins, 2 losses and an ERA of 4.91 in 6 games. In particular, he had difficulty managing the number of pitches, and three times he did not last even five times.
Manoa recorded 16 wins, 7 losses, 180 strikeouts, and an ERA of 2.24 in 31 games last year, ranking third in the American League Cy Young Award voting. However, he fell into a severe slump this year due to command hunting, and has remained with an ERA of 5.87 with 3 wins, 9 losses, and 79 strikeouts in 19 games.
Due to Manoa’s relegation to the minor leagues, Toronto will make a starting lineup of five: Hyun-Jin Ryu, Kevin Gaussman, Chris Bassett, Jose Berrios, and Yusei Kikuchi.
In the three home games against the Chicago Cubs, which will be held from the 12th to the 14th, Berios, Bassitt, and Ryu Hyun-jin are scheduled to start in turn.
