Canning (1-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Tigers by allowing two runs on four hits across 5.1 innings. He struck out seven and walked one.
Canning made it through five innings scoreless but the Tigers were able to find some success during the sixth, costing him the quality start. The 22-year-old could be called upon to start again Sunday at Baltimore as Andrew Heaney (elbow) remains on the injured list without a definitive return date.
Canning will remain in the majors for at least one more start, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Canning won't pitch in this weekend's two-game series against the Astros in Mexico, but will take the mound sometime during next week's series versus the Tigers, which begins Tuesday. The 22-year-old did not factor in the decision during his major-league debut, giving up three runs on four hits over 4.1 innings while striking out six.
Canning didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over 4.1 innings while striking out six.
The right-hander wasn't particularly efficient in his big-league debut, needing 82 pitches (49 strikes) to record 13 outs, but Canning flashed his upside by generating an impressive 18 swinging strikes. The Angels have yet to announce whether he'll remain in the rotation, but the 22-year-old likely showed enough to stick around for at least one more turn.
Canning will make his major-league debut Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.
Canning has allowed just one earned run and has a 17:1 K:BB through three starts for Triple-A Salt Lake this season. He's a promising prospect, with a fastball that sits in the mid-90s and a potentially plus slider, backed up by decent command. He'll reach the majors within two years of being taken 47th overall in the 2017 draft.
Manager Brad Ausmus said Canning "is on the radar, for sure," Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Canning has been lights out for Triple-A Salt Lake so far this season, compiling a 0.56 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 17:2 K:BB through a trio of stats (16 innings). He was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday in order to throw 90 pitches in an extended spring training game, a good indication that the 22-year-old could be close to making his big-league debut. Should the Angels promote Canning, they would first need to clear a spot on their 40-man roster.
