WVU Pitcher Alek Manoah Selected in the First Round

It was a foregone conclusion that Mountaineer ace Alek Manoah was going to be selected in the first round. It was simply a matter of where he’s going.

With the 11th pick pick of the 2019 MLB Draft, the Toronto Blue Jays selected Alek Manoah of West Virginia University.

West Virginia’s ace is Canada bound!

Manoah had an incredible season for West Virginia. He went 9-4 with a 2.08 ERA, striking out 144 in 108.1 innings pitched.

Hopefully in a couple years we can see Manoah pitching for the Blue Jays in the American League East and taking on the likes of Aaron Judge and Mookie Betts.

Good luck Alek. You had an incredible career at WVU and Mountaineer fans will always be pulling for you. Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer!
