  • Mets' Mark Canha: Day off Saturday

    Canha isn't starting Saturday against the Mariners.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Powers Mets' offense

    Canha went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, three RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Nationals.

    Canha delivered a two-RBI single in the first inning and then followed that up with his second home run of the season in the ninth frame. He entered the contest with only two hits across his last 20 at-bats while striking out at a 27.3 percent clip. However, Canha snapped out of the cold spell Thursday, and he is hitting .313/.376/.398 to go along with 12 RBI and 10 runs scored across 93 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Canha isn't starting Wednesday against the Nationals.

    Canha has gone just 1-for-14 with three runs, an RBI, a walk and four strikeouts over his last four games. Jeff McNeil will shift to left field while Luis Guillorme starts at the keystone Wednesday.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Sitting Game 1

    Canha is out of the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

    Canha will take a seat for the second time in the past three games, though he figures to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's nightcap. Jeff McNeil will shift to left field while Luis Guillorme starts at the keystone.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: On bench Wednesday

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Socks first homer of 2022

    Canha went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.

    He took Max Fried deep in the third inning, Canha's first long ball as a Met. The veteran outfielder hit second for the first time this season after spending most of his time so far toward the bottom of the order, but his .356/.433/.424 slash line through 17 games suggests manager Buck Showalter would be better off keeping Canha near the top.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: On bench Sunday

    Canha is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Canha is riding a six-game hit streak, during which he's gone 8-for-21 with a double, two walks and two runs, but he'll take a seat for Sunday's series finale. Jeff McNeil will move to left field while Luis Guillorme starts at the keystone.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Takes seat Saturday

    Canha is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Drives in two Thursday

    Canha went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    He supplied the Mets with some insurance in the third inning, bringing home two runs with a two-out single. Canha hasn't missed a beat since spending a week on the COVID-19 injured list, and while he's still looking for his first extra-base hit this season, the 33-year-old outfielder is batting .379 with a .471 OBP and six RBI through eight games.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Back from injured list

    Canha (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Canha has been out the past week while on the COVID-19 IL but will rejoin the active roster Wednesday after clearing MLB's testing protocols. The 33-year-old was off to a hot start prior to the absence, slashing .381/.500/.381 with three RBI and two runs scored in six games.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Not activated for doubleheader

    The Mets didn't activate Canha (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list prior to the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Giants, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Both Canha and Brandon Nimmo were placed on the COVID-19 IL on Friday, and Nimmo will be the first of the two to rejoin the 28-man active roster after clearing the final stages of MLB's testing protocols earlier Tuesday. Canha could theoretically clear the protocols within the next few hours to make himself available for the second game of the twin bill, but the Mets would likely wait until Wednesday to activate him in that scenario.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    Canha (illness) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Canha tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday as part of an outbreak in the team's clubhouse. He's asymptomatic and will be able to rejoin the team as soon as he tests negative. Nick Plummer and Matt Reynolds were recalled to provide depth while Canha and Brandon Nimmo (illness) are unavailable.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Canha has tested positive for COVID-19, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Canha isn't starting Friday's game against the Diamondbacks and will need to isolate from the team following his positive test. He's not experiencing symptoms, but it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return. Dominic Smith and J.D. Davis should see an uptick in playing time while Canha is unavailable.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Not starting Friday

    Canha isn't starting Friday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Canha had started in each of the last four games, and he went 4-for-15 with two RBI, a walk and five strikeouts during that time. The Mets reportedly have some close contacts after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19, but it's not yet clear whether Canha falls under that category. Jeff McNeil will shift to left field while J.D. Davis enters the lineup as the designated hitter.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Three hits in Sunday's loss

    Canha went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

    His second-inning single brought home Eduardo Escobar and gave the Mets a 2-1 lead, one the team held until a bullpen missing closer Edwin Diaz (personal) faltered late. Canha is off to a flying start to his New York tenure, going 7-for-10 with three walks, two runs and two RBI through his first three games for the Mets, although the veteran outfielder is still looking for his first extra-base hit of 2022.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Not in starting lineup

    Canha isn't starting Saturday's game against Washington.

    Canha started the last two games and went 4-for-6 with two runs, an RBI, three walks and two strikeouts. Travis Jankowski will start in left field and bat seventh.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Looks sharp in Mets debut

    Canha went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Thursday's win over the Nationals.

    Somewhat surprisingly, Canha hit seventh against lefty Patrick Corbin while designated hitter J.D. Davis hit second, but the veteran outfielder still had plenty of success getting on base from the bottom of the order. If that slot in the lineup becomes his regular home, it would impact Canha's upside in runs, but more likely manager Buck Showalter will figure out he's a better fit higher in the order.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Smacks first spring homer

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Marlins.

    The first-inning blast off Will Stewart was Canha's first of the spring. The 33-year-old cashed in on a big 2021 season that included career highs in runs (93), walks (77) and steals (12) by getting a two-year contract from the Mets this offseason, and he hit second in Thursday's lineup behind Brandon Nimmo -- a lineup that would give New York's sluggers like Pete Alonso plenty of ducks on the pond this year given Nimmo's career .393 OBP and Canha's career .344 mark.
