Alek Manoah’s season of milestone moments is going to make its way to October, as he will have an opportunity to make some memories in the MLB postseason.
Even though the Yankees ended up being crowned AL East champions, Manoah and the Blue Jays will still have a chance to win the American League pennant. Toronto clinched a Wild Card birth Thursday night thanks to Baltimore’s 5-3 loss to the Red Sox.
The former West Virginia pitcher turned MLB All-Star tweeted his excitement about reaching his first professional postseason.
Yoooooo we’re going to the POSTSEASON!!!

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.
