Athletics' Mark Canha: Three-hit night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Astros.

Canha had missed Thursday's series opener with a hand injury, but it didn't seem to bother him at all Friday, as he opened the scoring with a solo shot off Astros start Justin Verlander in the fifth inning. Canha also played all 13 innings in the contest. For the year, the utility man is hitting .258/.381/.509 with a career-high 18 homers, as well as 36 RBI and 52 runs scored across 275 at-bats.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha (hand) is starting in center field and batting sixth Friday against the Astros.

Canha was held out of Thursday's matchup after injuring his hand during Wednesday's clash, but he'll be ready to roll for the second game of the series. He's batting .237 with four RBI over his last 10 games.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Nursing hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha won't play Thursday against the Astros due to left hand soreness, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

Canha reportedly suffered the injury Wednesday while making a catch at the wall, so he'll be held out Thursday as a precaution. Skipper Bob Melvin is optimistic that Canha will be ready to roll Friday, however.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha is not starting Thursday against the Astros.

Canha will head to the bench for what appears to be a routine day off as Chad Pinder picks up a start in center field in his stead. Through 11 games this month, Canha is slashing .293/.408/.366 with two stolen bases and a 34.7 percent strikeout rate.

Athletics' Mark Canha: On base four times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-3 with two walks and a run in a win over the White Sox on Friday.

Canha now sports a career-high .381 on-base percentage as he continues to draw walks at a career-best 13.9 percent clip. The veteran also sports his stingiest strikeout rate (20.6 percent) since his rookie campaign in 2015 and has equaled his personal high-water mark in home runs (17) as well.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Plates two in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-5 with a two-run single in an 8-3 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

Canha did his damage early on, with the single coming in the first inning. He has been strong lately, going 11-for-36 with a home run, four RBI, four runs scored and two steals in his last 10 games.

August 2, 2019 05:12 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Constant presence on basepaths
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha, who went 3-for-3 with a double, a walk, two stolen bases and a run in a win over the Brewers on Thursday, currently sports career bests in on-base percentage (.382) and slugging percentage (.530).

Canha's line Thursday serves as a fitting representation of the well-balanced contributions he's capable of bringing to the table. The veteran's .254 average isn't noteworthy, although it too equals a high-water mark for Canha. However, the other aforementioned components of his slash line, along with his career-high 14.1 percent walk rate and .276 ISO, have been of benefit to fantasy managers. Canha is also equaling his career bests in home runs (17) and strikeout rate (19.8 percent), so it's been a banner year all the way around for the 30-year-old.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Pops 17th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.

Canha opened the scoring with his blast in the second inning off Rangers starter Adrian Sampson. Canha also got on base when he was hit by a pitch in the fourth inning. The designated hitter has hit safely in eight of his last 10 games, hitting .250 with two homers, five runs scored and five RBI in that span. He's batting .253/.383/.544 with 17 homers in 73 games this season, but he has seen consistent playing time throughout July.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Solid month continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a double in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

The veteran has given his season average a nice 15-point boost to .251 during July, a month in which his contributions include nine extra-base hits (three doubles, one triple, five home runs), nine RBI and 12 runs. Canha continues to enjoy an everyday role while logging time at first base, all three outfield spots and designated hitter, and both his current .378 on-base percentage and .530 slugging percentage represent career bests.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored Saturday against the Twins.

Canha took Zack Littell deep in the seventh inning to record his 16th home run of the season. He continues to take advantage of regular playing time in the absence of Stephen Piscotty (knee), collecting at least one hit in eight of his last 10 contests. He now has a .255/.386/.557 line across 236 plate appearances for the season.

July 17, 2019 10:36 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Clubs pair of homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs Wednesday against the Mariners.

Canha homered in consecutive plate appearances -- once in the fourth inning followed by another in the sixth frame. He now has 15 long balls on the season and has recorded multi-hit games in four of his five starts since the All-Star break. That's boosted his line to .254/.386/.558 across 223 plate appearances for the campaign. He should continue to see regular playing time so long as Stephen Piscotty (knee) remains sidelined.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Reaches safely on four occasions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Goes yard Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Doubles in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

July 7, 2019 02:24 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Cleared to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Launches 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs in a win over the Twins on Tuesday.

Canha gave the Athletics some key breathing room in the seventh inning with a 422-foot shot to left that extended their lead to two runs, ultimately their final margin of victory. The veteran has picked up steam at the plate over the last six games, a stretch during which he's 6-for-19 with a double, two homers, three RBI, five walks and seven runs across 25 plate appearances.

June 30, 2019 02:52 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Gets fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha will serve as the Athletics' designated hitter and will bat cleanup Sunday against the Angels.

Canha will be replacing Khris Davis (hand) in the series finale, marking his fifth start in a row. While Davis could rejoin the lineup as soon as Tuesday against the Twins, Canha could stick in the starting nine in the outfield. Stephen Piscotty (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, leaving the team without one of its everyday players through at least the All-Star break.

June 29, 2019 06:12 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Belts 11th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, two additional runs scored and a walk in Friday's 7-2 win over the Angels.

The utilityman scored on homers by Matt Olson in the first and third innings before taking Angels reliever Luke Bard deep himself in the seventh inning. Canha has found playing time somewhat inconsistent, playing in 51 games with 11 homers, 21 RBI and 30 runs scored. He's never hit for a high average, but a .368 on-base percentage and a .525 slugging percentage have been enough to keep him in the lineup as a power option for the homer-happy Athletics.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Clubs 10th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 3-1 loss to the Rangers during the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader.

After chipping in a double in the matinee, Canha is now hitting .319 (15-for-47) over his last 15 games with five homers and nine RBI. The veteran utility player has seen action at first base, DH and all three outfield spots this season, and he should continue to draw somewhat consistent playing time thanks to a .248/.380/.571 slash line -- the OBP and SLG both career highs -- that includes 10 home runs in 39 contests.
