From Laws chat today:

What's the biggest difference between Manaea last summer and now?Was the Cape a fluke, or is their an injury concern, or is it something else?

Not throwing as hard. Rolled his ankle in mid-March, has had some hip soreness since then, not clear if that's a major or minor factor since his stuff was down a tick before then. He pitches tonight and there will be a ton of heat in there.

While the stat line isn't bad, only throwing 5 innings is.

An article about Manaea from Mayo at mlb.com.

Sean Manaea's cool exterior masks inner fire as First-Year Player Draft nears | MLB.com: News

Mayo notes Manaea's stuff and pitch limit from his game this week.

Manaea gave up one unearned run on five hits, walking two and striking out five. He was on a 60-pitch limit because conference tournament play begins on Tuesday. The reports -- 89-93-mph fastball, inconsistent slider -- were similar to his Alcorn State start.
