  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Placed on IL

    The Tigers placed Manning on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a right foot fracture.

    Manning has already been ruled out for the rest of the season, so his move to the injured list is simply procedural. His roster spot will be filled by Trey Wingenter, who was brought up from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Done for season

    Manning suffered a fractured right foot during Wednesday's game against the Yankees, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    A 119-mph grounder off the bat of Giancarlo Stanton struck Manning's right foot in the first inning of Wednesday's contest, and he will now officially miss the rest of the season. Manning already missed a significant amount of time at the beginning of the year with a fracture in the same foot, though he reportedly injured a different part of his foot Wednesday. The 25-year-old righty will finish 2023 with a 3.58 ERA and 1.04 WHIP through 78 innings.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Exits with injury

    Manning was removed from Wednesday's game against the Yankees after getting hit in the right foot by a comebacker, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

    Giancarlo Stanton smacked a 119-mph grounder that ricocheted off Manning's right foot in the first inning of Wednesday's contest, and Manning had to be replaced on the mound by Beau Brieske. The Tigers will take a look at Manning and provide more information in the near future, but he should be considered day-to-day until then.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Quiets Yankees in no-decision

    Manning pitched six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Thursday, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out four batters.

    Manning cruised through the six frames on 81 pitches, preventing New York from putting on more than one runner in any inning. He departed with a 3-0 lead but was deprived of a victory when Alex Lange gave up three runs in the ninth. Manning has been on quite a roll lately, tossing three straight quality starts and yielding one or zero earned runs in four straight outings. Over that stretch, he's posted a minuscule 0.38 ERA and 0.68 WHIP despite a weak 10:6 K:BB over 23.2 frames.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Set to start Thursday

    Manning (back) is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Yankees, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The 25-year-old originally lined up to take the mound Wednesday, but Joey Wentz is instead poised to pitch. Manning exited his most recent start last Friday with a stinger in his lower back, but the issue won't prevent him from making his next turn through the rotation. The right-hander has pitched well in his past three starts with just one earned run allowed across 17.2 frames.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Trending toward making next start

    Manning (back) had been scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday and expects to be ready to make his next start Wednesday against the Yankees at Comerica Park, reports.

    Manning dealt with what he described as a "stinger" in his lower back during his most recent outing this past Friday against Houston, during which he struck out three while allowing one unearned run on one hit and no walks over 6.1 innings. According to Evan Woodbery of, manager A.J. Hinch said that the Tigers will check back in with Manning on Tuesday to see how he came out of the bullpen session. Expect the Tigers to confirm shortly thereafter whether or not Manning will be able to take the hill Wednesday.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Undergoing tests on back

    Manning is undergoing tests after injuring his back in the seventh inning of Friday's win over the Astros, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Manning was visited by Tigers manager A.J. Hinch and the trainer after delivering a pitch to Yainer Diaz. "It looked like he slipped on the pitch before," Hinch said. "His spike caught or whatever, but the back grabbed at him a little bit... He was uncomfortable." Manning threw a test pitch but winced, at which point he was removed from the contest. Hinch noted that Manning celebrated with his teammates after Parker Meadows hit a walk-off homer, which the manager took as "a good sign." Manning was terrific Friday before departing, allowing just one unearned run on one hit over 6.1 frames.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Leaves start with injury

    Manning was removed from Friday's start versus the Astros in the seventh inning with an undisclosed injury, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports. He allowed just one unearned run on one hit over 6.1 frames before departing.

    Manning looked to tweak something in his side or back while delivering a pitch. He tested things out with one warmup pitch but then walked off the field and into the clubhouse. It's unfortunate timing, as Manning was in the middle of one of the best starts of his career in permitting just one unearned run on an infield single, an error and a catcher's interference.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Looks sharp in win

    Manning (5-4) allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits across six innings to earn the win Saturday against the Guardians. He had one walk and two strikeouts.

    Outside of a first inning solo home run by Kole Calhoun, Manning didn't allow any more earned runs as he cruised to the win. The righty has been sharp over his last two outings, allowing just the one earned run across 11.1 innings, though with only three strikeouts. For the season, Manning has just 42 strikeouts in 64.2 innings, which limits his fantasy upside. He'll look to continue his strong recent form in his next start, which is tentatively set for Friday against the Astros.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Stingy in fourth win

    Manning (4-4) picked up the win Saturday, allowing one unearned run on two hits and three walks over 5.1 innings in a 6-2 victory over the Red Sox. He struck out only one.

    The right-hander wasn't dominant, managing only seven swinging strikes among his 90 pitches, but Manning produced plenty of weak contact as he won his first game in over a month. He also kept the ball in the park, a big improvement after he'd served up six homers over his last three starts. Since the All-Star break, he carries a 5.46 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 20:7 K:BB through 29.2 innings, and he'll look to claw back that ERA further in his next outing, likely to come next weekend in Cleveland.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Hit hard in Sunday's loss

    Manning (3-4) took the loss against the Rays on Sunday, allowing eight runs (six earned) on nine hits and a walk while striking out three in 5.2 innings.

    Manning's struggles carried over into Sunday's start. He allowed five runs through the first two innings and later gave up his second home run of the day in the fourth. The 25-year-old was miraculously one out away from completing six frames but was yanked after allowing consecutive base hits. Manning has put together a very forgettable three-game stretch during which he's allowed 19 runs (17 earned) on 23 hits, including six home runs over his last 16.2 innings. The Tigers don't really have any better options at this point, so Manning figures to stick around. He's tentatively lined up to face the Red Sox on the road in his next start.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Takes loss Tuesday

    Manning (3-3) allowed four runs on eight hits across six innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Pirates. He had no walks and struck out six.

    A two-run home run by Liover Peguero in the second inning accounted for half of the damage, which has been the story lately for Manning, who's allowed four home runs over his last two starts. He's given up 11 runs across 11 innings in those two starts, pushing his season ERA up to 4.53. Manning will look to limit the long ball and get back on track in his next start, which is tentatively set for Monday against the Twins.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Knocked around Thursday

    Manning (3-2) took the loss against the Angels in the second game of a doubleheader Thursday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five batters over five innings.

    This was arguably the worst outing of Manning's campaign, as both the seven runs and seven hits were season-high marks. The right-hander was particularly vulnerable to the long ball Thursday, as the final four runs against him came by way of three Angels homers. Prior to this contest, Manning hadn't surrendered a home run over 25 innings in five starts since coming off the injured list June 27, so there probably isn't cause for concern in regard to a problem keeping the ball in the park, especially since two of the three blasts against him Thursday were hit by MLB homer leader Shohei Ohtani. Manning will look to bounce back in his next start, which is tentatively lined up to come at home versus the Rays next week.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Outing shortened by delay

    Manning did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one hit and two walks over two scoreless innings in a 14-3 loss to the Padres. He struck out two.

    After tossing two scoreless innings, Manning was forced back to the dugout due to a rain delay and did not return despite throwing only 32 pitches. The start marked his first outing going fewer than five innings but continued a stretch of strong play. Over his last three starts (14.1 innings), Manning has allowed just one earned run and five total hits to lower his season ERA to 3.19. He's tentatively scheduled to take on the Marlins in Miami for his next start.

  • Tigers' Matt Manning: Narrowly misses quality start

    Manning tossed 5.2 innings in a no-decision against Kansas City on Monday, allowing two unearned runs on four hits and no walks while striking out three batters.

    Manning made history as part of a combined Tigers no-hitter his last time out, and he continued that success into Monday's outing. The right-hander gave up two unearned runs in the fourth inning -- largely as a result of his own throwing error -- but otherwise kept KC off the scoreboard while falling one out shy of a quality start. Manning has gone at least five frames in each of his six starts this season and has put up an appealing 3.12 ERA and 0.98 WHIP. However, his 23:10 K:BB over 34.2 innings suggests some regression may lay ahead.
