Former West Virginia ace Alek Manoah will make his major league debut on Wednesday, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

After being selected 11th overall by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2019, Manoah will make his MLB debut after just two seasons in the minor leagues. Making his Triple-A debut this season, Manoah has a 0.50 ERA in three starts. The Blue Jays will be on the road against the New York Yankees on Wednesday

Manoah had a 2.81 career ERA with the Mountaineers and was named the Big 12’s best pitcher in 2019 after going 9-4 with a 2.08 ERA and 144 strikeouts in 108 1/3 innings. After drafting Manoah, the Blue Jays sent him to the short-season Vancouver Canadians where he had a 2.65 ERA with 27 strikeouts in 17 innings in his first professional season. Manoah spent the 2020 season at Toronto’s alternate training site but was not called up to the majors.
