A’s shut down Sean Manaea after experiencing soreness

Sean Manaea

The Oakland Athletics were hoping to get starting pitcher Sean Manaea back in mid-August after shoulder surgery, but that return may be delayed.

According to manager Bob Melvin, Manaea suffered soreness in his right side after his last rehab start, but it is not said to be serious.

The A’s could really use Manaea. They lost Frankie Montas to suspension and are very much in a playoff race, so anything Manaea can contribute would be great for them. He looked like he had a breakout season in 2018 with a 3.59 ERA, but it remains to be seen how he’ll recover from a shoulder procedure.
