CHICAGO (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Alek Manoah left Wednesday night’s game against the Chicago White Sox in the second inning with an apparent injury.

With two out and a runner on third, Manoah was checked on by manager John Schneider and a trainer after throwing a 91.4 mph sinker to Dominic Fletcher for a ball. The big right-hander then departed after a short discussion on the mound.

There was no sign of any issue on the pitch to Fletcher. The Blue Jays did not immediately announce the reason for Manoah’s departure.

The 26-year-old Manoah is 1-2 with a 3.70 ERA in five starts this season. He was tagged for six runs, four earned, and five hits in 4 2/3 innings in a 6-2 loss at Detroit on Friday night.

Manoah began the season on the 15-day injured list with a right shoulder injury.
