The Detroit Tigers are down another arm with the Matt Manning injury
The Detroit Tigers have been anything but healthy in 2023, especially at the pitching position. Casey Mize, Spencer Turnbull, Matthew Boyd, Eduardo Rodriguez and Tyler Alexander have all missed time this season, and now, they're dealing with another setback after Matt Manning left tonight's game with an injury.
Manning was cruising prior to his injury
Manning lasted 6 1/3 innings tonight against the visiting Houston Astros before his departure, striking out three batters while allowing only a single hit and run.
He departed tonight's game
After throwing a slider to Yainer Diaz, Manning looked noticeably uncomfortable on the mound and appeared to favor his back. After a discussion with manager A.J. Hinch as well as a single warmup pitch, he departed.
TL;DR (too long didn't read)
- The Detroit Tigers are taking on the Houston Astros at Comerica Park
- Matt Manning became the latest Tigers pitcher to suffer an injury, and departed tonight's game
- Manning had been cruising prior to his departure with three strikeouts and allowing only a single hit
Bottom Line: The Tigers pitching staff has been banged up
This will seem like a broken record for Tigers fans, who are understandably frustrated with the amount of injuries that their team has suffered in 2023.
Let's hope that Manning's ailment isn't of the serious variety and that he can come back to action soon.
