Manaea (2-0) gave up three hits and one walk while striking out six through six scoreless innings to take the win over the Rangers on Sunday.
Manaea had 11 swinging strikes and 19 called strikes in another electric performance to earn his second win. The 27-year-old has been great since being activated with a 0.50 ERA and a 21:6 K:BB through three starts this season. Manaea is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Rangers at RingCentral Coliseum.
Manaea (1-0) allowed one run on two hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out 10 and earning the win over Detroit.
The lone run to score on Manaea came in the form of a fifth-inning solo shot by Christin Stewart. The 27-year-old owns a 0.75 ERA and 15:5 K:BB in his first two starts after rehabbing from shoulder surgery. He should make his next start sometime next weekend against the Rangers in Texas.
Manaea is scheduled to start Sunday against the Tigers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Manaea looked good in his 2019 big-league debut last Sunday, holding the Yankees to one hit and three walks over five scoreless innings. The strong showing earned the southpaw another turn in what is expected to be a six-man rotation for the next couple of weeks.
Manaea will get another start at some point over the next week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The southpaw was highly effective during his first big-league start of 2019 last Sunday, holding the Yankees to one hit and three walks over five scoreless innings. Manaea's strong showing earned him another turn in what is essentially a six-man rotation for the Athletics at the moment, with manager Bob Melvin stating an announcement on how he'll utilize his starting pitchers in coming days is imminent.
Manaea threw five scoreless frames while allowing one hit with three walks and five strikeouts during a no-decision against the Yankees on Sunday.
The 27-year-old and J.A. Happ squared off in an old-fashioned pitcher's duel Sunday with neither starter factoring into the decision. But considering this was Manaea's first start in a year after major shoulder surgery, owners should be pleased with this performance. Manaea's next start lines up for Sunday at home against the Tigers.
