Alek Manoah is scheduled to make his Spring Training debut on Tuesday against the Tigers. (

Fantasy Impact:

It will be the first start for Manoah since August 10. Veteran starter Chris Bassitt said he has been "impressed with the demeanor" of Manoah thus far in camp. “I don’t want to speak for him,” Bassitt said. “I know he was going through a lot of stuff last year. But I would say the biggest thing is he’s not thinking mechanics. He’s just pitching. Obviously the hard work that he’s put in, I think he’s a great spot. So many people look at a negative season and getting kicked in the teeth as a bad thing. I think it’s a great thing. I see how strong he is mentally. I don’t think he was that strong last year. I think the game has a beautiful way of humbling you and then it has a beautiful way of making you even better as long you take it as a positive and I think he really has.”
