  • Mets' Mark Canha: Agrees to two-year deal with Mets

    Canha and the Mets agreed to terms on a two-year, $26.5 million deal Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The late bloomer looks set to slot straight into Michael Conforto's spot in right field after Conforto declined a qualifying offer to try his luck on the open market. Canha will turn 33 in February but he remains an effective player, hitting .231/.358/.387 (good for a 115 wRC+) with 17 homers and a career-high 12 steals last season. He is one of the league's premier on-base threats, as his .377 on-base percentage over the last three seasons is good for ninth among qualified hitters. His power appears to be fading, however, as his .156 ISO in 2021 represented a career low while his 7.1 percent barrel rate was his lowest mark since 2017.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Gets breather Saturday

    Canha isn't starting Saturday's game against Houston, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Canha will get a rare day off after he went hitless with two strikeouts in four at-bats during Friday's series opener. Chad Pinder will take over in right field while Pete Kozma starts at shortstop.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Walks off Astros

    Canha went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Astros.

    With two outs in the bottom of the seventh and runners at the corners, Canha legged out an infield single to score the tying run. In his next at-bat with one out in the bottom of the ninth, Canha came through with another clutch hit to help Oakland keep its faint playoff hopes alive. After a prolonged slump for much of the past two weeks, Canha appears to be coming out of his funk with five hits and a pair of walks over his last five games.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Can't shake slump Monday

    Canha, who went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a loss to the Mariners on Monday, is now hitting just .167 (5-for-30) with a double, two RBI, five walks, two hit-by-pitches and six runs in his last eight games.

    It's worth noting Canha has actually struck out at a lesser frequency -- 16.2 percent -- during that sample than his 20.4 percent season figure, with a .208 BABIP over that span partly to blame for his poor numbers. The veteran outfielder has salvaged his OBP during the skid by still drawing walks at an elevated 13.5 percent clip, and he should be able to emerge from his doldrums in short order if he continues to make consistent contact.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Homers in loss

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Rangers.

    Canha continued his stellar September with yet another homer Saturday. After hitting just .158 with two home runs in August, the Oakland outfielder has already cranked four homers in September and is hitting .286 over the course of 10 games.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Fourth homer in five games

    Canha went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two total runs scored in Saturday's 10-8 loss to Toronto.

    After an underwhelming August, Canha has started to regain his composure at the plate by posting an eight-game hitting streak. He's gone 10-for-31 (.323) with four homers, 10 RBI and eight runs scored in that stretch, with all four long balls coming in his last five contests. The 32-year-old's slash line is at .239/.365/.415 with 16 homers, 53 RBI, 81 runs scored and 12 stolen bases through 518 plate appearances overall.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Clubs 15th homer

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 11-10 loss to the Blue Jays.

    He took Jordan Romano deep in the ninth inning, seemingly bailing out the A's after the bullpen squandered an 8-2 lead in the eighth inning and let the Jays tie it up, but then Sergio Romo served up a walkoff shot to Marcus Semien in the ninth. Canha has gone yard three times in the last four contests to help extend his hitting streak to seven games, but despite the hot stretch he's still batting only .237 on the season with 15 homers, 12 steals, 49 RBI and 79 runs through 514 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Homers in win

    Canha went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks and another run scored during Thursday's win over the Tigers.

    Since losing his leadoff spot in the batting order Friday, Canha has begun heating up, collecting six hits in consecutive games, including two homers in that span. The 32-year-old was hitting sixth this time around. Overall this season, Canha has 14 homers to his name along with a .236/.363/.402 slash line.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Dropped from leadoff spot

    Canha has been moved down to the seventh spot in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Canha has been Oakland's primary leadoff man throughout the 2021 campaign, but a .141/.270/.212 August slash line makes it hard to leave him atop the order. Tony Kemp will start things off for the Athletics on Friday, while Starling Marte and Josh Harrison could also be candidates to leadoff going forward.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Swipes 12th base

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in a loss to the Mariners on Monday.

    The veteran outfielder extended his career-best stolen-base tally to 12 while reaching safely for the third straight game. Canha also snapped an ugly four-game streak of multiple strikeouts, part of a late-August skid that's seen him hit just .111 (3-for-27) over his last seven contests.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Receives rare rest

    Canha will sit Friday against Texas.

    Canha had started every game since returning from the injured list back in mid-July. He hasn't been at his best over that 22-game stretch, hitting a modest .222/.388/.296, though his 14:14 K:BB is an encouraging sign. Tony Kemp will be the left fielder Friday.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Back in action Wednesday

    Canha (eye) is starting Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

    Canha was removed from Tuesday's win in the 10th inning due to eye irritation, but he'll start in left field and lead off Wednesday. The 32-year-old has gone 3-for-19 with a double, five runs, four walks and four strikeouts across the last five games.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Exits with eye issue

    Canha was removed from Tuesday's win over Cleveland with eye irritation, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Canha went 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts before being replaced in the outfield for the bottom of the 10th inning. The cause of the injury remains unclear, and he should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Continues living on basepaths

    Canha went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

    Canha pushed his on-base percentage back up to .386 with yet another busy day on the bases Sunday. Rare is the game that doesn't find Canha aboard at least once; the last time he failed to reach safely by either hit, walk or hit by pitch was June 24 against these same Rangers, a contest he exited after just two plate appearances due to a hip strain that subsequently landed him on the injured list.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Getting on at prolific clip

    Canha went into Thursday night's game against the Angels having posted a .455 on-base percentage in the 44 plate appearances encompassing the 10 contests since his July 17 return from the injured list.

    The veteran has been an especially savvy hitter the last few seasons, but Canha is seemingly taking his craft to a new level of late. His latest busy night on the basepaths heading into Thursday came the night prior, when he went 2-for-3 with two RBI, two walks, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Padres. Canha reached safely in all 10 contests during the sample as well, pushing his season OBP to to an elite .385.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: On base four times in win

    Canha went 2-for-3 with a double, a stolen base and two walks in a win over the Mariners on Thursday.

    The veteran produced a prototypical leadoff effort, pushing his OBP to an elite .383 in the process. Canha has hit safely in all five games since his return from a stint on the injured list due to a hip issue, and Thursday's steal gives him a career-high eight swipes on the campaign.

  • Athletics' Mark Canha: Goes 1-for-4 in return

    Canha (hip) went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Cleveland.

    Canha missed just over three weeks while battling tendinitis and a left hip strain. The outfielder hit in his usual leadoff spot Saturday, although it may take him some time to get comfortable at the plate after not going on a rehab assignment. The 32-year-old has a .255/.376/.447 slash line with 11 home runs, 33 RBI, 55 runs scored and seven stolen bases through 329 plate appearances this year.
