Detroit Tigers P Matt Manning hit by 119.5 mph comebacker

What Happened To Matt Manning?

Manning’s night was ruined when he threw a fastball to Yankees slugger, Giancarlo Stanton, who smashed the ball right back at Manning, with an exit velocity of a staggering 119.5 mph. The rocket-like comebacker struck Manning’s right foot, the same foot he had fractured earlier in the season.

Despite the excruciating pain, Manning made the play, recovering the ball and throwing Stanton out at first base. However, he couldn’t hide his agony, and manager A.J. Hinch and the team’s medical staff rushed to his aid.

Done for the Night

Manning managed to walk off the field under his own power, but the impact of Stanton’s comebacker was undeniable. Prior to this unfortunate incident, Manning had been on a remarkable streak, allowing just one earned run in his last four starts, boasting a minuscule 0.38 ERA and a 17 1/3 consecutive scoreless innings streak.

TL;DR (too long didn’t read)

  1. Detroit Tigers pitcher Matt Manning’s game took a terrifying turn when he was struck by a 119.5 mph comebacker to his right foot.
  2. Despite the painful injury, Manning managed to make a heroic play by recovering the ball and throwing out the batter, Giancarlo Stanton.
  3. The incident highlighted the inherent risks pitchers face on the mound and interrupted Manning’s impressive streak of performance.

Bottom Line: Wishing Manning the Best

Let’s hope that this is nothing more than a scare for Manning and that he is not injured again. So far on the season, he is 5-4 with a solid 3.62 ERA in 14 starts for the Tigers. If Manning has to land on the injured list, there is a possibility that he has pitched in his final game for the Tigers in 2023. Hopefully, that is not the case.
