Alek Manoah struggles; Roden hits a two-run shot in a Blue Jays loss

Today, the Blue Jays were defeated by the Detroit Tigers by a score of 6-4, giving them their third loss of Spring Training.


RHP Alek Manoah got the start and struggled. In 1.2 innings, Manoah allowed 4 earned runs, hit three batters, and recorded no strikeouts. He threw 44% of pitches as strikes. On the bright side, the righty had an uptick in velocity from last year, with his hardest-thrown pitch being a 95.5 mph four-seamer.


On the offensive side of things, INF Ernie Clement went 3 for 3 with a stolen base, while Eduardo Escobar struck out twice in three at-bats. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Clement win a bench spot over Escobar, or even Espinal, as the pair have both struggled early in Spring Training. Prospects Orelvis Martinez and Alan Roden each drove in two. Orelvis recorded the hardest hit ball of the game, hitting a 111.2 mph double to left field. Roden clubbed a home run to right field off LHP Andrew Chafin.

Pitching prospects Hagen Danner and Yosver Zulueta each threw an inning of scoreless ball. Zach Pop had a nice outing, recording two strikeouts and, unsurprisingly, walking none.


Paolo Espino will get the start tomorrow against the Rays. The game will be televised on Sportsnet.
