Manoah, 26, didn't make his first start of the season until May 5 after landing on the injured list during spring training due to inflammation in his right shoulder. After finishing third in American League Cy Young voting in 2022, he struggled last year, going 3-9 with a 5.87 ERA a.

Manoah finishes this season 1-2 with a 3.70 ERA in five starts, striking out 26 and walking eight in 24 1/3 innings. In his four seasons in the majors -- all with the Blue Jays -- he is 29-20 with a 3.34 ERA, 412 strikeouts and 158 walks in 420 innings.
