Another day means another honor for Alex Manoah, this time being named American League Pitcher of the Month.
The former Mountaineer pitcher turned MLB All-Star didn’t have just any quality month. He put together an historic month. Manoah now owns the Blue Jays record for the lowest ERA in a single month in team history. The ace posted a 0.88 ERA in 41 innings pitched in September. He also struck 33 batters and held hitters to a .162 average against him all month. To cap it all off, this was all accomplished while helping Toronto to secure a Wild Card birth.

After going 9-2 with a 3.22 ERA and 127 strikeouts as a rookie last year, Manoah owns a 15-7 record with an ERA almost a full point better than in 2021 at 2.31 and 176 punch outs in 190.2 innings of work. He’s also now destined for a postseason start.
