Blue Jays Open to Trading Starting Pitcher Alek Manoah

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic is reporting that rival executives are saying the Blue Jays are open to trading embattled starter Alek Manoah. 

Manoah was one of the promising young pitchers in baseball as he pitched 308 innings over 2021-2022 with an incredible 157 ERA+. Unfortunately, his 2023 was equally as bad as those seasons were good. He pitched to a 5.87 ERA in 87.1 innings pitched and lost all control over his pitches.

The big (and I mean BIG, 6'6" & 285 lbs) right-hander won't come cheaply but with the Brewers knack for developing starting pitching, he could be worth the sizable risk. Manoah is still only 25 years old, won't become arbitration-eligible until after the 2024 season, and will not be a free agent until the 2028 season.

I'm not interested in gambling on the upside given that he will not be cheap. It feels unprecedented for a guy to just lose his feel for pitching as much as Manoah did this last season. It's not like he had a few blowups that inflated his ERA. He looked completely lost, even in the minors.
