Angels' Griffin Canning: Shut down with elbow inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning was diagnosed with mild inflammation of his right elbow joint, and he will be shut down for the rest of the season.

It's good that he is only dealing with mild inflammation, which will allow him to proceed with a "rest and recover" route rather than surgery. However, he won't pitch again this season, so he can be cut loose in all redraft leagues. Canning had a 4.58 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 96 strikeouts in 90.1 innings during his rookie year. Jose Suarez is replacing him in the rotation.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Back on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning was placed on the injured list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The same issue forced Canning onto the injured list earlier in the month, though he was able to return after a brief stay on the shelf. The right-hander is headed back to California to be further evaluated, after which a timetable for his return will hopefully emerge. It's not yet clear who will take his place in the rotation, though the Angels can get away with a four-man rotation for most of the month thanks to a flurry of off days.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans eight in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (5-6) allowed one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings Sunday, striking out eight and earning the win over the White Sox.

Canning turned in one of the best performances of his young career, tying his career highs of seven innings pitched and eight punchouts. The 23-year-old rookie lowered his ERA to 4.58 alongside a 96:30 K:BB. Looking for his third straight win, he'll get a tough road matchup in Houston on Friday.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Scuffles in return to rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning did not factor into the decision against the Pirates on Tuesday, tossing four innings and giving up three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two.

Canning had been out since July 30 while dealing with elbow inflammation and looked rusty in his return to the mound, issuing three walks while tossing only 48 of 80 pitches for strikes. All three runs against him crossed the plate in the third inning when he surrendered four hits and committed a costly throwing error. Canning now sports a 4.86 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 88:29 K:BB over 83.1 innings and will have a home matchup against the White Sox on Sunday in his next scheduled start.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Activated for Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) was activated off the 10-day injured list to start Tuesday versus the Pirates.

Canning landed on the injured list in early August with right elbow inflammation, but he's able to make a quick return to the starting rotation. The 23-year-old has a 4.76 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 86:26 K:BB over 79.1 innings this season. His previous outing was one of his best of the year as he fired six scoreless frames with seven strikeouts.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Set for Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) will be activated to start Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The rookie right-hander logged a 5.94 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 52:17 K:BB in 47 innings over his 10 starts prior to landing on the shelf. Since the start of June, Pittsburgh ranks sixth in the majors with a 109 wRC+ against righties. He last started July 30 and logged six innings in that outing.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Set to rejoin rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) suffered no setbacks in his bullpen session Saturday and will rejoin the Angels rotation, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Canning was placed on the injured list last Sunday after dealing with elbow inflammation. With Jaime Barria getting sent down Saturday, there is a natural opening in the team's starting five. Maria Torres reports that Canning should start Tuesday against the Pirates as long as his arm is recovered.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Set for bullpen session Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Canning landed on the 10-day injured list with elbow inflammation August 4. If all goes well Saturday, he could return to the rotation soon thereafter. The rookie right-hander has posted a 4-6 record along with a 4.76 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 79.1 innings this season.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Dealing with elbow inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning, who was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, has been diagnosed with right elbow inflammation, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Canning's move to the IL came as a surprise after there was no indication from the team that he sustained an injury in his most recent outing in Tuesday's win over the Tigers, when he spun six scoreless innings and struck out seven. Though the Angels have clarified that the rookie is tending to an arm injury, DiGiovanna notes that the Angels have already ruled out any UCL damage to the right-hander's elbow. He'll likely be prescribed some rest for the next few days before the Angels determine whether Canning is fit to resume a throwing program.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Surprisingly lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels placed Canning on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to an unspecified issue, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The Angels should provide more clarity on the reason behind Canning's IL placement later Sunday, but the rookie showed no signs of poor health is his most recent outing Tuesday against the Tigers, striking out seven over six scoreless frames to pick up the win. Patrick Sandoval will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to replace Canning in the rotation Monday in Cleveland.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Blanks Tigers over six innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (4-6) earned the win against Detroit on Tuesday, pitching six shutout innings and allowing four hits and one walk while striking out seven.

Canning entered Tuesday with an ugly 12.34 ERA in July but turned things around against the lowest-scoring offense in baseball, limiting Detroit to five baserunners while completing six innings for the first time in his last five games. The rookie right-hander posted a 2.57 ERA in May but has mostly struggled since, giving up 31 earned runs in 47 innings over the last two months. He'll look to start August on a positive note when he takes on the Reds in Cincinnati on Monday.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Struggles continue in late loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (3-6) took the loss after allowing five runs on five hits and one walk while striking out two over two innings in Thursday's 16-inning game against the Orioles, and he won't be available to make his scheduled start Friday.

Canning threw 42 pitches during the final two innings, surrendering a game-winning home run to Jonathan Villar. The right-hander has allowed 18 runs with a 22:12 K:BB in 17.2 innings during his last five outings. Nick Tropeano is the top candidate to start Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. As of now, Canning is expected to make his following turn in the rotation.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over five innings Saturday. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision in a win over the Mariners.

Canning allowed runs in the second and third innings, but otherwise kept it tidy. It was a solid bounce-back performance for the rookie right-hander, who failed to complete two innings in his previous start. Canning owns a 4.67 ERA and 77:24 K:BB in 71.1 innings this season. He'll take a 3-4 record into his next start versus the lowly Orioles on Thursday.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Walks six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning lasted just 1.1 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Monday, giving up three earned runs on two hits, striking out two and walking six as the Angels eventually came back to win 9-6.

The 23-year-old couldn't find the strike zone in this contest, as he issued a season-high six free passes before getting chased from the game after tossing 50 pitches. It was the second straight start in which he's been roughed up, as Canning was tagged for six earned by the Rangers in the last start. He's seen his ERA jump from 3.79 to 4.75 over that stretch, although his 1.19 WHIP and 71:23 K:BB remain respectable. He'll look to right the ship in his next start, which is scheduled for a Saturday road matchup against the Mariners.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans six in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (3-5) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Rangers after surrendering six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six over 3.1 innings.

Canning struck out the side in the first inning but soon ran into trouble in the second by loading the bases with a pair of singles and a walk. Luckily, the only run that scored came from a sacrifice fly by Asdrubal Cabrera. In the third, Canning surrendered a two-run double to Nomar Mazara. The right-hander then allowed a two-run homer to Rougned Odor in the fourth and was pulled after allowing another pair of hits following his 85th pitch. What started out strong turned out to be a sloppy outing despite the six punchouts. The 24-year-old will take a 4.43 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 69:17 K:BB into the All-Star break.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Now starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning's next start will be pushed back to Thursday against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Jaime Barria has been recalled and will get the start Wednesday. Fortunately, it seems there are no health issues to report with Canning; apparently the team just wanted to build in an extra rest day. Canning has enjoyed quite a bit of success so far at the big-league level, though the estimators are less favorable on account of his 1.8 HR/9.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (3-4) picked up the win Thursday after holding the A's to two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings.

Of the trio of hits Canning allowed, two were solo home runs accounting for the only significant damage of the night. The 23-year-old had allowed 13 runs in 23.1 innings over his last four starts, so it was reassuring to see him breeze past a solid A's lineup. Of course, it helped having his offense at full strength for the first time this season, as all nine starters recorded hits and provided generous run support. Canning has proven himself as a reliable starter for the Angels, lasting six innings in five of his last six starts. The right-hander will carry a 3.79 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 63:14 K:BB into Tuesday showdown at the Rangers.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Gets extra day between starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning is scheduled to make his next start Thursday at home against the Athletics.

Due to an off day Monday, the Angels had the opportunity to reorder their rotation, but they'll elect to break in a new fifth starter (Jaime Barria) for Wednesday's series finale with the Reds rather than waiting until the weekend to do so. As a result, Canning will return to the hill Thursday on five days' rest instead of his normal four and draw a different opponent than fantasy managers may have anticipated heading into the week. The extra day of rest should at least prove beneficial to Canning, who has surrendered 13 runs in 23.1 innings over his last four starts.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Little support in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (2-4) took the loss Friday as the Angels were downed 5-1 by the Cardinals, giving up two runs on four hits and three walks over 5.1 innings while striking out three.

He got spotted a 1-0 lead before he even took the mound, but that was all the run support Canning would receive on the night. The rookie will take a 3.88 ERA and 57:13 K:BB through 55.2 innings into his next start Thursday, at home against the A's.

June 17, 2019 11:52 AM
Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans seven in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (2-3) allowed four runs on six hits and struck out seven over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Rays.

Canning yielded a run in the first inning, two in the second and a fourth run in the fifth on a solo home run to center field. He's turned in a quality start in two of his last four outings, but he wasn't able to get the job done Sunday. The right-hander owns a 3.93 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 54 punchouts across 50.1 innings this season.
