Blue Jays’ Alek Manoah forced to exit after manager makes mound visit blunder in Toronto’s third straight loss

On Saturday, Alek Manoah got into it with Baltimore Orioles infielder Adam Frazier, yelling at him and using some choice words to tell him to go back to the dugout following a sixth inning strikeout. Blue Jays manager John Schneider came out to speak to Manoah after the exchange with Frazier, presumably to help him get his focus back on the game.

There was one small problem though: Schneider did not realize it was the second mound visit of the inning. Pitching coach Pete Walker visited Manoah earlier in the frame. By rule, you must change pitchers following the second mound visit in an inning, so Manoah had to come out of the game. He’d thrown 85 pitches in 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball.

“I f——d up.” Schneider told about the mound visit after the game. “But I think, regardless of my f—- up, it was the right time to get him out.”
