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.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Misses five innings again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning gave up three runs on six hits and two walks over 4.2 innings during Saturday's 4-3 win over the A's. He struck out three and didn't qualify for the decision.

It's become a familiar theme for the 24-year-old, as he's completed five frames in only one of his six starts this season. Canning has a 4.88 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 23:12 K:BB across 27.2 innings and will hope to find his first win Thursday at Houston.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Pitches 4.2 innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning didn't factor into the decision in Monday's game between the Giants and the Angels. He allowed three runs on six hits while striking out two in 4.2 innings.

Canning has pitched five complete innings just once this season and has allowed three or more earned runs three times, so it's really hard to trust him in fantasy leagues right now. The right-hander, who has a 4.70 ERA in 23 innings this season, is lined up to start against the Athletics on the road Aug. 22.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Starting versus Giants on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning will flip-flop in the rotation with Dylan Bundy and start Monday's game against San Francisco, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bundy has been pitching ahead of Canning in the rotation, but they will reverse that order this week in order to get Bundy extra rest. The Angels had an off day Thursday, so the switch means that Canning will still be starting on regular rest. The right-hander has an 0-3 record through four starts this season, posting a 4.42 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB in 18.1 innings.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Surrenders three homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (0-3) took the loss Wednesday against the A's after giving up four runs on six hits with two strikeouts and zero walks across four innings.

The right-hander never got settled in Wednesday and allowed an extra-base hit in all four of his frames, including three long balls. Canning has been unable to find much consistency this season with a 4.42 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 18:10 K:BB over 18.2 innings, and he'll look to put up a rebound performance versus the Giants next week.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Ineffective versus Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (0-2) took the loss Friday versus the Rangers, giving up four runs (one earned) on three hits and six walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings.

Canning didn't make things easier on himself, as his throwing error led to the Rangers' tying run being scored. Reliever Mike Mayers then hit Nick Solak with a pitch while the bases were loaded, allowing an inherited runner to score, which stuck Canning with the loss. The 24-year-old right-hander has a 3.14 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 14.1 innings this season. He'll hope to demonstrate better control at home against the Athletics on Wednesday.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Strong outing versus Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning allowed one run on six hits and two walks over six innings during Saturday's extra-inning win over the Astros, He struck out five and did not factor in the decision.

The right-hander was in line for the win until the ninth inning, but Hansel Robles was unable to secure the save. Still, it was a good performance for Canning, as he scattered five singles over six scoreless frames before giving up a leadoff double to start the seventh inning. The 24-year-old has a 3.38 ERA through two starts and lines up to pitch against the Rangers next weekend.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Mixed bag in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (0-1) gave up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven in 4.2 innings Monday against the Athletics.

It's great to see Canning rack up the strikeouts in his first start of the season, but he threw 82 pitches (50 strikes) without getting out of the fifth inning. He will have another tough matchup Saturday at home against the Astros.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Dominant in exhibition start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning took the win in Monday's exhibition game against San Diego, completing six scoreless innings and allowing three hits and two walks while striking out five.

Canning breezed through six innings against a Padres lineup consisting of projected starters, allowing only five baserunners while fanning five. The right-hander has looked solid in summer camp and has shown no signs of being affected by the elbow issue that shut down his throwing in February. Canning could be a solid source of strikeouts at the back end of the rotation after whiffing 96 batters in 90.1 innings last season.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Looks good in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) struck out eight hitters in five innings during an intrasquad game Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Canning's appearance was far from traditional -- he faced only six different batters, most of whom are Triple-A level -- but it is encouraging that the right-hander was able to go five frames after experiencing elbow issues during spring training. Canning appears to have benefited from extended time off and a series of biological injections, and he should be ready to hold down a spot at the back end of the Angels' rotation when the season kicks off.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Elbow feels 'normal'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning said his right elbow "feels like normal" and has built up to 60 pitches, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Canning received a PRP injection in the troublesome elbow in March and was able to take his time resuming a throwing program due to the suspension of play. The right-hander returned to the mound in May and has been able to throw without a setback since, most recently tossing a three-inning session of live batting practice Friday. That puts Canning roughly on par with the rest of the Angels' starters, lending credence to the belief that he will be able to open the campaign with a spot in the rotation.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Continues facing hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) is throwing live batting practice Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The 24-year-old began facing batters in May and continues to ramp up toward the start of the season. Canning was shut down with elbow issues in early March and received a series a biological injections, but he's been progressing nicely in his recovery and manager Joe Maddon recent said that he was very hopeful the right-hander would be healthy by Opening Day. Regardless of his short-term availability, the "chronic changes" to his UCL uncovered by a late February MRI could be a problem down the road.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Could be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels manager Joe Maddon said Wednesday that he's "very" hopeful that Canning (elbow) will be ready for Opening Day, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

There was no chance Canning would have been a go for the original Opening Day, but he may have had enough extra recovery time to secure a spot on the season-opening 30-man roster. As of last month, Canning had built up to 55 pitches in live BP sessions. His MRI in late February showed "chronic changes" to the UCL in Canning's pitching arm, so the concerns about his elbow will not be going away anytime soon even if Canning does gain clearance for the start of the 2020 campaign.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Facing hitters regularly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) recently resumed throwing live batting practice and has advanced to the 55-pitch mark in those sessions, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Canning has already thrown live BP three times and is expected to hold steady around 55 pitches in his subsequent sessions until the Angels begin their second phase of preseason training. Assuming Canning avoids any setbacks with his right elbow as he ramps up, he'll likely have a spot waiting for him in the Angels' Opening Day rotation. As a rookie last season, Canning posted a 4.58 ERA and 1.22 WHIP while striking out 96 batters over 90.1 innings.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Continues to progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) has been "ramping up intensity and volume," Jeff Fletcher of The Orange Country Register reports.

Canning was reported to have resumed throwing off a mound last week, and Angels general manager Billy Eppler confirmed that the right-hander has progressed to that stage in a text message Wednesday. With a potential Opening Day slated to take place no sooner than early July, Canning appears on track to claim a spot in the Angels' starting rotation to kick off the campaign.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Throwing off mound again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) has been cleared to start throwing bullpen sessions, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

In a post to his story on his personal Instagram page, Canning shared video of himself throwing in the bullpen at Angel Stadium on Tuesday. That suggests the right-hander has continued to progress in his recovery from the elbow discomfort that sidelined him in late February. The injury was originally expected to land Canning on the injured list to begin the season, but with MLB play still suspended, chances are high that he could be ready to pitch whenever play resumes.

Angels' Griffin Canning: Extends throwing distance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canning (elbow) is throwing from 120 to 150 feet at about 70 to 80 percent intensity, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

According to Angels general manager Billy Eppler, Canning is "doing good" and has progressed to a point where he could throw from a mound in seven to 10 days. Eppler dismissed the suggestion that Canning could be a candidate for Tommy John surgery if the season is canceled, stating that right-hander will not be subjected to that surgery "unless there was new evidence or a new injury that took place." Given Canning's progress, it is reasonable to assume he will be part of the Angels' starting rotation when the 2020 season gets underway.
