Player Outlook
In his age-34 season, Mark Canha continued to cruise along as a steady if not spectacular veteran. The outfielder began 2023 with the Mets, but with New York falling out of contention, he was dealt to Milwaukee at the deadline. Canha earned a regular role with the Brewers and played well, posting five home runs, 33 RBI and an .800 OPS across 50 games. For the full season, he recorded 11 home runs, 62 RBI and a .755 OPS over 139 games. Now in his first season with the Tigers following an offseason trade, Canha is likely to post similar numbers. He has a career .772 OPS and has hit 20 or more long balls once in nine years. His career high in RBI is 70, and he recorded 61, 61 and 62 RBI the last three years, respectively. In short, Canha is a solid and consistent player, though he's best viewed as a depth piece in most fantasy leagues. The playing time should be there at least on a Detroit team that is still searching for consistent offense.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Homers in victory

    Canha went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk during Friday's 8-2 victory over the Twins. Canha put the Tigers in front early with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. He later walked and came around to score on a Matt Vierling single during the fifth frame before driving in Jake Rogers on an RBI single of his own in the sixth. The 35-year-old outfielder is now slashing .243/.404/.541 with three homers and six RBI across his first 47 plate appearances with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Taking seat Monday

    Canha is not in the lineup for Monday's contest in Pittsburgh, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. Riley Greene is in left field and Matt Vierling is in right while Canha gets a day off. The 35-year-old is off to a nice start at the plate this season, putting up an .853 OPS with a couple home runs.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Launches second homer

    Canha went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 win over the A's. Canha extended Detroit's lead to 4-2 with a 414-foot solo shot off JP Sears, his second homer of the year. Canha has just five hits through his first 21 at-bats this season, though three have gone for extra bases. His OPS is up to 1.000 through the first seven games of 2024 after he slashed .262/.355/.400 with 11 homers, 62 RBI and 51 runs scored across 139 games between the Mets and Brewers last year.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Not in lineup for first game

    Canha is absent from the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Mets. He'll likely be back in the lineup for the second contest, but Riley Greene and Matt Vierling will serve as Detroit's starting corner outfielders in the early game while Canha rests. Canha is 4-for-13 with a home run and a 3:3 K:BB in his first four tilts this season.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Canha is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets. Canha is 4-for-13 with a home run, three walks, three RBI, three runs and a stolen base through four games, but he'll take a seat for Tuesday's contest. Riley Greene will shift to left field while Matt Vierling receives a start in right.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Big day in Saturday's win

    Canha went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three runs scored, three RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the White Sox. The veteran outfielder's sixth-inning solo shot off right-hander Michael Soroka got the Tigers rolling toward a comeback from an early 6-3 deficit. Canha has produced double-digit homers and steals twice in the prior three seasons, and he hasn't had an OBP below .355 since 2018, giving him a solid fantasy floor even if he lacks an exciting ceiling. He also seems to have a spot in the heart of the Detroit order locked into place -- he hit fourth on Thursday against southpaw Garrett Crochet before batting fifth Saturday against Soroka.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Seems set for regular role

    Canha appears to be set for a regular outfield role with the Tigers this season, particularly if the team carries a short bench into the regular season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. The veteran Canha was deployed as a short-side platoon player for parts of last year, though it looks like he'll have a regular role in Detroit. The Tigers have Riley Greene, Parker Meadows and Canha penciled into starting outfield jobs, with utility players Matt Vierling, Zach McKinstry and Andy Ibanez on hand for depth. Akil Baddoo may be on the outside looking in at this point, and without another established outfielder on the roster, Canha may be asked to take on a heavy load.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Team option for '24 picked up

    The Tigers exercised Canha's $11.5 million team option for 2024 on Monday. The decision to pick up the option was merely a formality, as the Tigers acquired Canha from the Brewers on Saturday with the intention of having him be a part of the 2024 roster. The 34-year-old doesn't bring the most exciting fantasy skill set to the table, but he was a serviceable producer in the five main rotisserie categories in 2023, batting .262 with 11 home runs, 11 stolen bases, 62 RBI and 51 runs across 507 plate appearances between the Mets and Brewers. He was deployed as a short-side platoon player for parts of the season, but expect him to be a mainstay in the lineup against right-handers while he joins a Tigers lineup that still has plenty of holes.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Dealt to Detroit

    The Brewers traded Canha to the Tigers on Saturday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Blake Holub, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Rather than making a decision on Canha's $11.5 million club option, the Brewers will ship the 34-year-old across Lake Michigan to give Detroit a right-handed bat in the outfield. Canha slashed .262/.355/.400 across 507 plate appearances with the Mets and Brewers in 2023, but he saw a notable uptick in performance with Milwaukee during the second half of the season.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Sitting out Friday

    Canha isn't in the Brewers' lineup Friday against the Cubs. Canha was able to break his three-game hitless streak with a single during Thursday's win over St. Louis, and he will now get his second day off in three games. William Contreras will serve as Milwaukee's designated hitter with Canha out, and Victor Caratini will start behind the plate while batting eighth.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Out of Wednesday's lineup

    Canha is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Canha will take a seat after making 11 straight starts because Milwaukee secured the NL Central title Tuesday. William Contreras will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Victor Caratini receives a start behind the plate.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Possible waiver wire pickups

    You may have thought Mark Canha's best days were behind him, but the 34-year-old has found new life with the Brewers, batting .319 with five homers, three steals and an .885 OPS since joining them at the trade deadline. He did sit out a couple games last week with a wrist issue, but don't mistake him as a platoon guy. He returned to start all three games over the weekend and actually went 6 for 13 with a home run and two stolen bases. He's bound to cool off eventually, but this hot streak is well-timed for a week that opens with matchups like Adam Wainwright, Drew Rom, Zach Thompson, Miles Mikolas and Johnny Cueto. Canha's natural on-base skills make him especially alluring in points leagues.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Returns to lineup Friday

    Canha (wrist) is starting in right field and batting sixth Friday against the Nationals. Canha has been held out of action since making an early exit from Tuesday's game against Miami due to a sore left wrist. The 34-year-old has given the Brewers' lineup a spark since he joined the team in August, slashing .303/.394/.459 across 142 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Sits again with sore wrist

    Canha (wrist) is again absent from the lineup Thursday against the Marlins. Canha is in a shutdown period after receiving a cortisone injection Wednesday to help heal some soreness in his left wrist, though he should be able to return to action at some point during the Brewers' three-game weekend series against the Nationals. Josh Donaldson will fill the DH role Thursday as Tyrone Taylor patrols left field.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Removed with wrist soreness

    Canha was removed from Tuesday's game against Miami due to left wrist soreness, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. No details regarding the severity of Canha's injury have been released, but the 34-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more is known. Joey Wiemer replaced Canha in the third inning of Tuesday's contest and could see an uptick in opportunities should Canha miss a few games.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Homer, stolen base Sunday

    Canha went 2-for-4 with a home run, an RBI, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's 4-2 loss against Philadelphia. Canha's been red hot of late, going 14-for-33 (.424) with a pair of homers in his last nine games. He extended Milwaukee's lead to 2-0 in the third inning Sunday with an opposite-field blast off Ranger Suarez. Overall, Canha's slashing .259/.354/.403 with nine homers, 42 runs scored, 46 RBI and eight steals across 413 plate appearances between the Brewers and Mets this season.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Smacks eighth homer

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 6-2 victory against the Cubs on Monday. Canha put the cap on a four-run first inning for the Brewers with a 436-foot, two-run blast to left-center field. The homer was his second since joining Milwaukee in a trade-deadline deal. Canha struggled a bit immediately after the change of scenery, but he's been coming on over the past few weeks, batting .318 with two long balls, 11 RBI, eight runs and a 7:5 BB:K over his past 14 contests.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Sticks in lineup Wednesday

    Canha will start in right field and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Twins. Canha will pick up a third consecutive start after reaching base five times in the Brewers' previous two contests. Over his last 12 games, Canha is slashing .282/.370/.487 overall and looks as though he'll continue to serve as a near-everyday player for the Brewers so long as he wields a hot bat.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Not in lineup Thursday

    Canha is out of the lineup Thursday versus the Dodgers. Canha provided the only run for the Brewers in Wednesday night's 7-1 loss to Los Angeles with a solo homer in the top of the second inning, but William Contreras will fill the DH role Thursday as Victor Caratini steps in behind the plate.

  • Brewers' Mark Canha: Accounts for lone run in loss

    Canha went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the Dodgers. Canha's blast was one of three hits for the Brewers, all of which went for extra bases. He took Clayton Kershaw deep in the second inning to briefly tie the game at 1-1. Canha has struggled with the Brewers so far, going 10-for-47 (.213) over 14 contests since he was traded from the Mets. He's now at a .240/.334/.375 slash line with seven homers, 35 RBI, 33 runs scored and seven stolen bases over 103 games this season.
