Alek Manoah 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Manoah’s older brother, Erik, was drafted by the New York Mets in the 13th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft, but was released in 2019.

Manoah attended South Dade High School in Homestead, Florida.

As a junior, he hit .492 with five home runs and 32 RBIs.

That summer, he played in the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game at Wrigley Field.[4] During his senior year, he signed to play college baseball at West Virginia University.

Manoah was not drafted in the 2016 Major League Baseball draft out of high school and thus enrolled at West Virginia.

In 2017, as a freshman at West Virginia, Manoah appeared in 19 games (ten starts), pitching to a 1–1 record with a 3.07 ERA, earning a spot on the Big 12 All-Freshman Team.

As a sophomore in 2018, Manoah went 3–5 with a 4.00 ERA in 23 games (eight starts).

He particularly struggled with command, posting a 1.50 WHIP.

That summer, he pitched in the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Chatham Anglers where he went 4–3 with a 3.57 ERA in nine starts.

Prior to the 2019 season, Manoah was named a preseason All-American by Baseball America.

During the season, Manoah was named to the Golden Spikes Award watchlist along with unanimously being named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year.

At the time he received the award, he was 8–3 with a 1.91 ERA in 14 starts, striking out 125 batters in 94 innings.

He finished his junior year with a 9–4 record and a 2.08 ERA over 16 starts, compiling 144 strikeouts over 108+1⁄3 innings.

Pitcher Alek Manoah was selected by the Toronto Blue Jays in the first round of the 2019 amateur draft, with the 11th overall pick, out of the University of West Virginia.

In his final season with the Mountaineers, he had gone 9-4, 2.08 as a starter, with a K/W ratio of 144/27 in 108 1/3 innings.

He pitched briefly for the Vancouver Canadians of the Northwest League that summer, logging 17 innings in 6 starts with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 2.65.

Alek then spent all of 2020 at the Blue Jays’ alternative training site, working out with major league players and other top prospects as the minor leagues were shutdown.

In 2021, he received an invitation to spring training and impressed everyone with his stuff, to the point that some were calling for him to start the year in the Show in spite of his minimal professional experience, given that his main rival for the title of top pitching prospect in the organization, Nate Pearson had to start the year on the disabled list.

He was send all the way to AAA and in his first three starts with the Buffalo Bisons was as dominant as dominant can be: he went 3-0, with an ERA of 0.50, allowing just 1 run on 7 hits and 3 walks in 18 innings, while striking out 27.

With Pearson having failed in his one start with the major league Jays, and the team needing to make-do with a band-aid solution every time the fifth starter’s spot came up, Alek’s numbers were impossible to ignore, as he was clearly too strong for AAA baseball.

On May 24th, they announced that he was being called up to make his major league debut in the next few days.

His debut was delayed by 24 hours as the game of May 26th was rained out, so he ended up starting the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Yankees at New Yankee Stadium on May 27th.

He was just the second player from the 2019 draft to reach the majors, following Andrew Vaughn who had done so at the start of the season. He was issued the unconventional (for a pitcher) uniform number 6, which is the one he had worn in the amateur ranks.

He pitched 6 excellent shutout innings, before turning the ball over to Jordan Romano with a 2-0 lead, courtesy of back-to-back homers by Marcus Semien and Bo Bichette in the 3rd. Romano retired the Yankees in order in the 7th to close out the win.

Alek’s older brother, Erik Manoah, has pitched in the minor leagues.
