Blue Jays renew Alek Manoah’s contract for 2023 season

Cy Young finalist Alek Manoah is again having his contract renewed by the Toronto Blue Jays, Sportsnet Shi Davidi reports.

MLB Network’s Jon Heyman was first to report the news.

Davidi reports that Manoah will make $745,650 this season, up from $706,200 in 2022.

This is the second consecutive season Manoah has had his contract renewed after declining the formulaic contract the Blue Jays generate for pre-arbitration players.

Last season, both Manoah and Bo Bichette declined the Blue Jays’ contract offers and were instead renewed for lesser totals.

“I just think this is something I need to do to put myself in a position to help me out in the future,” Manoah said at that time.

The 25-year-old ace has five more years of service before becoming a free agent in 2028. He’s eligible for arbitration in 2025.

In 2022, his first full season in the majors, Manoah posted a 2.24 ERA over 31 starts with 180 strikeouts and finished third in Cy Young voting.
