Canha went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a triple, two walks and a run in a win over the White Sox on Saturday. Canha continued his hot start to July with his second straight two-hit effort, which included his first three-bagger since 2017. The veteran has reached safely in 10 straight games overall and is 8-for-25 with a double, Saturday's triple, two home runs, six RBI, six walks and six runs over his first seven contests of the month.
Canha went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Friday's 5-1 win over the White Sox. Canha's homer came in the sixth inning, extending the Athletics' lead to 4-0. The outfielder has 13 homers, 37 runs scored and 23 RBI in 59 games this season despite his .241 batting average.
Canha (back) went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Mariners on Sunday. Canha had been a late scratch Saturday with back tightness, but the veteran was right back in action Sunday. The 30-year-old heads into the All-Star break with an eight-game on-base streak, but he's seen a 15-point drop in his season average to .233 since June 9 by going just 12-for-58 over his last 19 games.
Canha (back) will start in right field and bat fifth Sunday against the Mariners. Canha was a late scratch ahead of Saturday's 6-3 loss after he complained of back tightness. As manager Bob Melvin insinuated, Canha's injury proved to be only a minor concern, so the 30-year-old will re-enter the starting nine for the Athletics' final game before the All-Star break.
Canha was scratched from the lineup Saturday against the Mariners with back tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The injury appears to be minor as manager Bob Melvin indicated he hopes Canha returns to the lineup Sunday, per Slusser. Jurickson Profar enters the lineup in left field, with Chad Pinder sliding over to right.
