Angels' Griffin Canning: Picks up win with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (5-4) earned the win over Kansas City on Wednesday, pitching 6.2 innings and allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out six.

The right-hander bounced back from a rough outing his last time on the mound by putting together his longest appearance of the season Wednesday. Canning was efficient over his 6.2 frames, throwing 60 of 89 pitches for strikes while limiting the Royals to a fourth-inning run. He picked up his fifth win of the campaign and lowered his ERA to 5.22 in the process. Canning will try to build upon the strong outing in his next start, which is tentatively slated to come at Oakland on Wednesday.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Lasts 3.1 innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (4-4) was tagged with the loss Thursday against the Mariners after allowing four runs on six hits and two walks while fanning five across 3.1 innings.

This was the fourth time Canning couldn't complete four innings this season, and the right-hander has given up three or more runs in each of his last three starts. That comes after a stretch of three straight starts with two or fewer earned runs. Canning owns a 4.45 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, a 10.5 K/9 and a 4.8 BB/9 over his last six outings, and his next start is scheduled for next week at home against the Royals.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Earns win Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (4-3) earned the win Wednesday against the Rangers after giving up three runs on four hits (including two home runs) and two walks while fanning seven across six innings.

Canning bounced back after losing in his previous start and while his stat line wasn't overly impressive, he went deep enough into the game to earn his second quality start of the campaign -- both have come over his last three appearances. The right-hander owns a 3.60 ERA across five outings this month, and his next start is scheduled to come next week on the road against the Giants.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Hammered in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (3-3) took the loss to Minnesota in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks with one strikeout in two innings.

Canning labored in this one, allowing seven baserunners on 68 pitches through just two innings. The big blow came in the first when he surrendered a Miguel Sano grand slam, and the start could've been much worse if he hadn't been able to escape a second-inning bases-loaded jam. It was a step backward for the young starter, who had allowed two runs or less in each of his last three starts.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans seven in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Red Sox, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out seven.

The right-hander delivered his first quality start of the season in his longest outing of 2021 so far, throwing 55 of 94 pitches for strikes, but Canning still exited the game in line for the loss until the Angels took a brief lead in the top of the seventh inning. He'll take a 4.78 ERA and sharp 37:12 K:BB through 32 innings into his next start.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Solid in win Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (3-2) allowed one earned run on six hits and three walks while striking out four across 5.2 innings, earning the win Friday against the Dodgers.

Canning struggled mightily through his first four appearances with a 8.40 ERA in 15 innings. In contrast, he has allowed just one run in 11 innings over his last two starts. The biggest difference is the long ball, in which he surrendered all six of his home runs this year in those first four appearances. He was pulled with two outs in the sixth inning, marking his deepest outing this season. The 25-year-old has a 5.19 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 26 innings.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Racks up nine punchouts in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (2-2) earned the win over Seattle on Saturday, tossing 5.1 innings and allowing one unearned run on three hits and two walks while striking out nine.

This was easily Canning's finest performance of the young campaign, as he posted a season-high nine strikeouts while matching his longest start thus far. He succeeded by throwing first-pitch strikes to 17 of 22 batters and racking up 23 swings-and-misses. The right-hander also was able to keep the ball in the park for the first time, helping him to his second win. Canning still sports an unimpressive 6.20 ERA overall, but he has shown some promise with a 26:8 K:BB across 20.1 innings. He's currently projected to face the Dodgers at home in next weekend's crosstown series.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Rocked by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (1-2) took the loss in Saturday's 16-2 rout by the Astros, coughing up six runs on six hits and two walks over 2.1 innings while striking out three.

Carlos Correa clubbed Canning's fifth pitch of the game into the seats for a leadoff homer, and it was downhill for the entire Angels pitching staff from there. The right-hander now has an 8.40 ERA thanks largely to serving up six homers in 15 innings, negating the positive impact of his 17:5 K:BB. He'll try to keep the ball in the park in his next outing, likely to come May 1 in Seattle.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Earns first win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (1-1) allowed two earned runs on two hits while striking out two across 2.1 innings, earning the win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Canning was moved to the bullpen after Shohei Ohtani reentered the starting rotation. In the 24-year-old's first relief appearance, he surrendered a solo home run to Nick Solak but did enough to maintain the lead. The Angels have some form of a six-man rotation going on and Canning's role will likely bounce between starting and relief through the season. He has a 5.68 ERA in 12.2 innings.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Takes loss in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (0-1) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday.

Canning allowed a solo shot to Salvador Perez in the third inning and a Cam Gallagher sacrifice fly in the fourth to account for the two runs against him. The Angels' offense was unable to find much success Wednesday, leaving Canning with a loss in his second start of the year. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 5.23 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 12 strikeouts over 10.1 innings this season. He lines up for a home start versus the Rangers next week.

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

Canning allowed four runs on three hits and a walk while striking out seven over 5.1 innings in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays. He didn't factor into the decision.

The righty was decent in his debut, with his only big mistakes resulting in a Vladimir Guerrero Jr. two-run shot in the first inning and a solo homer by Cavan Biggio in the sixth. The 24-year-old was shaky in the first inning but cruised thereafter until the sixth, throwing 51 of his 81 pitches for strikes. Canning is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Royals.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Won't start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning won't start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Canning was warming up in the bullpen during Sunday's game against the White Sox, so Dylan Bundy will step in as the starter on normal rest Tuesday. The Angels have a day off Wednesday, but Canning will make his first start of the regular season on the road against the Blue Jays on Thursday, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Improves in third spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning logged four innings Tuesday in a Cactus League game versus Cleveland, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out five.

Canning gave up some hard contact early and was far from dominant, but his outing was an improvement over his first two spring starts, during which he yielded a combined five runs across 3.2 frames. The right-hander should get in two more Cactus League appearances before opening the season as one of the Angels' six starters.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Struggling in spring play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning has started two Cactus League games for the Angels, allowing a combined five runs on five hits over 3.2 innings while posting an 8:4 K:BB.

The strikeouts have been there for Canning, but he has otherwise struggled in his first two spring starts. In his last outing -- against the Giants on March 11 -- he was removed in the second inning after giving up three walks and a bases-clearing triple. Canning is a lock for a rotation spot, however, and will look to build upon last season's 3.99 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Won't start Sunday's finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning won't start Sunday's game against the Dodgers as previously scheduled with the Angels eliminated from the playoffs, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The Halos playoff hopes were alive, albeit slim, until Friday, and they'll now shut down the 24-year-old rather than risk potential injury during the last game of the season. Canning posted a 3.99 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 56:23 K:BB over 56.1 innings (11 starts) this season, and he should enter 2021 with a secure spot in the team's starting rotation.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans 10 in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (2-3) earned the win over San Diego on Tuesday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on two hits and five walks while striking out 10.

Canning was effectively wild in the contest, making up for his five walks by fanning a career-high 10 batters and allowing only two hits (both singles). He threw 64 of 108 pitches for strikes but kept the Padres on their heels, inducing 20 swings-and-misses. The right-hander picked up his third quality start of the campaign and continued a strong three-game stretch in which he has allowed five earned runs over 16.2 innings while racking up 22 strikeouts. He is unlikely to start again this season.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Solid in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (1-3) threw five innings Thursday, allowing one run on six hits while walking two and striking out seven during the Angels' 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Canning earned his first win of the season through 10 starts, matching his season high with seven strikeouts in doing so. It took him 104 pitches (64 strikes) to navigate five innings of work, but he should still be expected to take the mound Tuesday versus San Diego.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Navigates Coors Field well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning allowed three runs on seven hits and a walk over 5.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Friday. He struck out five.

Canning was on the hook for the loss until Jared Walsh's game-tying homer in the eighth inning. Location considered, it was a solid effort for Canning, who has a 4.57 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 39:16 K:BB across 45.1 innings this season. The 24-year-old righty still hasn't won a game in 2020 -- he'll try to correct that Thursday versus the Diamondbacks.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Still looking for first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning didn't factor into the decision in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Astros, giving up four runs on four hits and two walks over four innings in a 10-9 win. He struck out four.

It was a bad evening for both pitching staffs, as the nightcap featured 13 runs as well, and Canning took his fair share of the lumps. The right-hander has only managed to complete five innings twice in his eight starts, which helps explain his 0-3 record, but his 4.54 ERA and 1.36 WHIP could be a lot worse under the circumstances. Canning's ratios will be in jeopardy in his next outing, however -- a road start Friday in Coors Field.

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

Canning gave up a run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven across eight innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Sunday.

Canning had his best start of the year -- he had pitched six or more innings only once in his previous six starts. However, the Angels offense didn't support him, which means Canning is still looking for his first win of the year. The 24-year-old has a 4.04 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 30 strikeouts through 35.2 innings this season. He'll look to maintain his momentum when he faces the Astros on Friday.
