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

Canha went 1-for-3 with an RBI single, a bases-loaded walk, another base on balls, a hit-by-pitch and a run in a win over the Mariners on Monday.

The veteran outfielder was able to plate runs in the fifth and seventh innings, his sixth and seventh RBI of the campaign. Canha also boosted his on-base percentage to a stellar .474 with his busy night, and he's one of the few Athletics to have enjoyed some success at the plate this season.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Adds rare steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-2 with a stolen base, a double, a walk and a hit-by-pitch in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Canha's steal came in the sixth inning after he was plunked by Mariners reliever Anthony Misiewicz, but he got greedy and was thrown out at third. Canha's not known for his speed -- he has just 14 stolen bases in his career after Sunday's performance. The 31-year-old is batting .292 with a homer, five RBI and three runs scored through eight games.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Plates pair in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-2 with two RBI from a sacrifice fly and fielder's choice groundout and also drew a walk during a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Canha's pair of RBI didn't exactly come from the most notable of hits, but they did account for all but one of the Athletics' runs on the night. The veteran outfielder is now tied with Matt Olson for the team lead with five RBI and has hit safely in all four games he's appeared in this season.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Hits first home run of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout Monday against the Angels.

Oakland's No. 5 hitter is now batting .333 and has two hits in back-to-back games. He appears to be picking up right where he left off after a scorching second half of the 2019 season (.301/.415/.528 slash line).

Athletics' Mark Canha: Timely hitting in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a run in a win over the Angels on Sunday.

The veteran outfielder drove home Matt Chapman and Ramon Laureano with his first-inning single, extending the Athletics' lead to 3-0 at the time. Canha has drawn starts in two of the first three games of the season, contributing a single in each while also striking out in three of his other six plate appearances.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha is not in the lineup Saturday against the Angels.

Canha started against lefty Andrew Heaney in the season opener Friday but will sit in favor of Robbie Grossman against righty Dylan Bundy in this one. The Athletics are certainly known to utilize platoons heavily, though it would be a surprise to see Canha sit against most righties, as he hit an excellent .273/.396/.517 last season. Over the course of his career, he's actually had reverse splits, posting a 101 wRC+ against lefties and a 121 wRC+ against righties, so platooning him in the conventional way wouldn't make much sense.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Strong spring before pause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha was starting to "hit his stride" at the plate when spring training was suspended, Shayna Rubin of The Mercury News reports.

The veteran outfielder hit .318 (7-for-22) with three doubles, six RBI, six walks and two runs over 11 Cactus League contests prior to the pause in play. Canha returned home shortly after spring training was suspended and has been engaging in body weight workouts in his backyard, a regimen that includes lunges, pushups and sit-ups. He's supplemented that work with some cardiovascular activity in the form of jumping jacks and an exercise bike and is also taking dry swings, attempting to address all aspects of personal fitness under unusual circumstances. Canha is slated to serve as the starting left fielder when the season does begin after a breakout 2019 during which he slashed .273/.396/.517 with 26 home runs and 58 RBI.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Thriving in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha is hitting .316 (6-for-19) with two doubles, five RBI, six walks and two runs across his first 10 Cactus League games.

The veteran outfielder enjoyed a breakout season at age 30 in 2019, slashing .273/.396/.517 with 45 extra-base hits (16 doubles, three triples, 26 home runs) and 58 RBI. The numbers helped earn him a solid pay raise to $4.8 million this offseason, as well as the inside track to the starting left field job for 2020. Canha has only further cemented his status with his solid spring at the plate thus far, and he heads into 2020 projected to log a workload on par with last season's 126 games, at minimum.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Receives $4.8 million deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha signed a one-year, $4.8 million contract with the Athletics on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The 30-year-old will more than double his pay from 2019 after posting a .913 OPS with 26 home runs and 58 RBI in 126 games. The 30-year-old struggled against right-handers in 2018 (.665 OPS) but reversed that trend last season (.966 OPS), opening the door for a larger workload.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Steps out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Seattle, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Canha returned to the lineup the past two days after missing a game with a groin issue, so it's no surprise to see him receive Sunday off after the A's clinched home-field advantage for Wednesday's Wild Card Game. Skye Bolt will start in center field in the season finale.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Hitless in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha (groin) went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Mariners.

Canha was back in the lineup after a one-game absence and played all nine innings in center field during the postseason-clinching win without any setbacks. The versatile veteran's blanking at the plate aside, Canha has been a pivotal part of the Athletics reaching the postseason for a second straight year with career highs in home runs (26), batting average (.273), on-base percentage (.396) and slugging percentage (.518).

September 27, 2019 06:12 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Back in center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha (groin) is starting in center field and batting fifth Friday against the Mariners.

Canha was held out of Thursday's contest after suffering a left groin strain Wednesday, but he's already been cleared for game action. He's batting .400 with two homers and four RBI over his last seven games.

September 27, 2019 12:28 AM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Could be available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha (groin) may be available off the bench for Thursday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Canha did some pregame running, which went so well that he believes he can enter off the bench if necessary. He'll likely be re-evaluated again Friday to determine whether he can return to the starting nine.

September 26, 2019 09:36 AM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Determined to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha, who suffered a left groin strain Wednesday, is determined to return Friday against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Canha told Slusser that he would write his name on the lineup card if it came to that, but this injury typically requires at least a few days to come back from, so he should be considered questionable for that contest. At the very least, we can rule him out Thursday.

September 26, 2019 01:00 AM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Removed from Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha exited Wednesday's game against the Angels with an apparent injury, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Canha appeared to tweak something when cutting off a ball in left-center field as he slowly left the field after making an awkward throw to the infield. The 30-year-old entered the contest with a 1.010 OPS in his previous 15 games, and the potential injury couldn't come at a worse time with the A's making a final push for a playoff spot. Canha should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Scores thrice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, three runs scored and a walk in Saturday's 12-3 win over the Rangers.

Canha was right in the middle of the Athletics' early rallies, scoring on a Ramon Laureano double in the first inning and a Sheldon Neuse single in the second. Canha topped it off with a solo shot in the fifth off Rangers reliever Shawn Kelley. Canha has homered in consecutive games, giving him 26 on the year to go with 59 RBI and 79 runs scored in 121 games.

September 21, 2019 12:28 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Smacks 25th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI double in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rangers.

Canha first plated Matt Chapman with the third-inning double, and then went yard off Rangers starter Mike Minor in the fifth. Canha is hitting .272/.396/.519 with 25 homers, 58 RBI and 76 runs scored as well as 15 doubles in 120 games this year.

September 19, 2019 10:28 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Hits walkoff RBI double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 2-for-5 with an RBI double to lift the Athletics to victory against the Royals on Wednesday.

Canha stepped up to the plate during a scoreless 11th inning and doubled to shallow right, scoring Jurickson Profar to gift the A's the win. The 30-year-old outfielder is slashing .270/.394./.509 this season with 24 home runs and 14 doubles.

September 15, 2019 12:52 AM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Blasts 24th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Rangers.

Canha didn't have the best night at the dish, but his fifth-inning, go-ahead homer off Rangers starter Mike Minor gave the A's a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Canha is hitting .272/.392/.516 with 24 homers, 55 RBI and 72 runs scored across 372 at-bats this season.

September 11, 2019 12:48 PM
Athletics' Mark Canha: Involved throughout rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 3-for-6 with an RBI and three runs in Tuesday's blowout win over the Astros.

Canha singled and scored in the first inning, did the same in the second and did it a third time in the sixth, scoring three of his team's 21 runs on the day. He now owns an excellent .337/.449/.584 slash line over his last 24 games.
