Top Mark Canha News

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Looks like short-side platoon man

    Canha isn't starting Monday against the Reds.

    Canha started in left field in the final two games of the Mets' series with Atlanta over the weekend and went 1-for-6 with a double, three RBI, a walk and a strikeout. Considering that he's on the bench against a right-hander (Justin Dunn) on Monday and has now been excluded from the starting nine four out of the past five times the Mets have faced a righty, the righty-hitting Canha looks like he'll have to settle for the short side of a platoon in the outfield with the lefty-hitting Tyler Naquin.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Stuck on bench again

    Canha will sit Friday against Atlanta.

    The Mets' outfield got more crowded after the team added Tyler Naquin in late July, and it looks like that may be having a larger impact on Canha's playing time than previously expected. The last four games have all come against righties, and it's been Naquin getting the start in left field in three of them. Canha's .270/.366/.375 slash line remains strong, and he's not in any sort of significant slump, but his fantasy appeal may take a hit if he continues to find himself on the bench several times a week.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Not starting afternoon game

    Canha will sit for the afternoon portion of Saturday's doubleheader against Atlanta.

    Canha finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in five games, all of which have come against righties. Tyler Naquin starts against right-hander Jake Odorizzi in this contest, but Canha should return to left field against southpaw Max Fried in the nightcap.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: On bench Thursday

    Canha isn't starting Thursday against Atlanta.

    Canha is out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games after he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Wednesday. Tyler Naquin will take his place in left field and bat seventh.

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

    Canha is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

    Canha racked up five hits over the last two days, but he will be held out in favor of Tyler Naquin with the Mets loading up on left-handed hitters against Nationals righty Cory Abbott. Canha has held down an everyday role for most of the season, but with he and Naquin splitting the last four starts, it appears the Mets are giving their new acquisition a chance to show what he can do.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Steals base in three-hit game

    Canha went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in a 9-3 win over the Marlins on Sunday.

    Canha joined in on the barrage of hits which ousted Marlins starter Pablo Lopez from the game. He racked up three singles while also swiping his second base of the year. Despite not hitting for much power, Canha has performed well out of the bottom of the Mets lineup this year and is slashing .271/.368/.380 on the season for his new team.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Riding pine against righty

    Canha is not in Saturday's lineup against the Marlins.

    This will be a situation to track, as the Mets have added lefty-hitting Tyler Naquin and could still add more offensive depth before the trade deadline. The righty-hitting Canha doesn't have pronounced platoon issues, but he may start sitting or hitting lower in the lineup against righties over the rest of the season.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Mashes seventh homer

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-3 win over Atlanta.

    He took Charlie Morton deep in the sixth inning, helping to chase the veteran right-hander from the game. Canha snapped a 14-game homer drought with the blast, and during that span he batted only .217 (10-for-46). However, on the season the veteran outfielder has been fairly productive with a .273/.371/.383 slash line, seven home runs, 31 RBI and 40 runs through 74 games.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Belts sixth homer

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-3 win over the Marlins.

    The 33-year-old launched his sixth homer of the year, taking Sandy Alcantara deep in the fifth inning. Canha has reached base in 11 straight starts, slashing .243/.429/.459 over that stretch with 10 walks, two homers, a steal, six runs and eight RBI.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: On bench Sunday

    Canha is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Jeff McNeil will pick up a start in left field in place of Canha, who sits for the second time during the Mets' six-game week. Canha still appears to be fairly secure in a near-everyday role, though the Mets' eagerness to open up more playing time in the infield for Luis Guillorme means that McNeil will spell Canha in the outfield more often than was anticipated heading into the season.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Homer, steal in win

    Canha went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a stolen base, a walk and two total runs scored in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Brewers. He was also hit by a pitch.

    Canha tied the game at 4-4 with his fifth-inning blast. He was plunked in the seventh and stole second. The 33-year-old had 17 homers and 12 steals in 2021, but he has just five long balls and one steal through 52 contests this season. The veteran outfielder is slashing .295/.378/.404 with 26 RBI, 30 runs scored and five doubles across 209 plate appearances, and he's held down a regular role as New York's starting left fielder.

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

    Canha will sit Tuesday against Milwaukee.

  • Mets' Mark Canha: Drives in three against Angels

    Canha went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and three RBI in Friday's win over the Angels.

    The veteran outfielder snapped an eight-game RBI drought with the performance. Canha isn't matching last year's pace in homers (four) or steals (zero), but he's justifying his offseason contract with a .300/.368/.394 slash line through 48 contests.
