  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Better despite loss

    Canning (0-3) took the loss Thursday against Tampa Bay, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out four.

    While Canning was ultimately charged with his third loss of the year, it was a step in the right direction after he'd allowed four runs or more in each of his first three starts. It looked like it could be another short outing for Canning on Thursday after he allowed two runs in the first inning, but the right-hander would settle in and hold the Rays scoreless over his final 4.1 frames. Canning still sports an ugly 8.05 ERA with a 1.58 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 19 innings this season. He's currently slated to face the Orioles at home in his next start.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Goes four innings in loss

    Canning (0-2) was dealt a loss Saturday in Boston, allowing seven runs (six earned) on nine hits and no walks over four innings. He struck out six.

    Canning didn't issue a walk in addition to notching six strikeouts, but for the third straight start he didn't pitch deep into the game. He's going in the wrong direction in that regard, too, as the five innings he went in his first outing of the season remains his longest start. The home run ball has been an issue for Canning, who has served up five of them in 13.2 frames. He's tentatively lined up to face the Rays on the road his next time out.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Yields three homers

    Canning did not factor in the decision Friday against the Red Sox, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out four.

    Canning struggled early, yielding all four runs on three homers in the second frame. He faced trouble on several other occasions but managed to limit the damage otherwise. The 27-year-old has given up nine runs over 9.2 innings to go with a 6:4 K:BB. Canning's velocity was down across the board, including his fastball which averaged just 92.5 mph. He's currently lined up to face the Rays at home next week.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Tagged for five runs in loss

    Canning (0-1) took the loss Saturday in Baltimore after he surrendered five runs on seven hits and a walk over five-plus innings. He struck out two.

    The right-hander allowed three runs through five innings and returned for the sixth in search of a quality start, but a single and a walk ended his day. Both baserunners came around to score as Baltimore rallied for six runs in the frame. Canning generated just eight swinging strikes on 96 pitches, with his two punchouts falling well below his 9.9 K/9 from 2023.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Appears ready for regular season

    Canning started five games this spring, posting a 3.78 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB over 16.2 innings.

    Canning tossed 91 pitches Sunday against the Dodgers in his final outing of the spring, so he appears ready for nearly a full workload as the regular season approaches. The right-hander gave up four runs over 4.2 frames in that start but also struck out eight batters, and he is coming off a 2023 campaign during which he registered a career-best 9.9 K/9. Canning's fantasy outlook is helped by the fact that the Angels will use a five-man rotation this season following the departure of Shohei Ohtani, and there's some strikeout upside in his arsenal, though he gave up plenty of hard contact last season and has been vulnerable to the long ball throughout his big-league career.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Receives $2.6 million from Angels

    The Angels and Canning avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.6 million contract Thursday, Rhett Bollinger of reports.

    The 27-year-old was in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Canning managed to stay relatively healthy in 2023 and contributed a 4.32 ERA and 139:36 K:BB across 127 innings of work. He'll look to build upon that this season.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Allows two runs in loss

    Canning (7-8) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings to take the loss Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    Canning went 0-4 over his last six outings of the campaign, though this was his third quality start in that span. The right-hander received no run support Wednesday, allowing Adolis Garcia's RBI double and solo home run to make the early difference. Canning finishes with a 4.32 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 139:36 K:BB over 127 innings across 24 appearances (22 starts) this year, an improvement on his 5.60 ERA over 62.2 innings in 2021. He did not pitch at all due to a back injury last season.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Fans seven in no-decision

    Canning did not factor into the decision in Thursday's loss to the Rays, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out seven.

    Canning pitched well enough in his outing to be in line for a win until the Angels bullpen let the lead slip away. Since returning to the rotation Aug. 27, the 27-year-old has made five starts and has a 3.68 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 33:7 K:BB over 29.1 innings. Canning's next outing is currently scheduled to be at home against the Rangers, and it could be his final start of the campaign.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Coughs up four runs

    Canning (7-7) yielded four runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings Friday, striking out seven and taking a loss against Detroit.

    Canning allowed a run in each of the first two innings and later coughed up solo shots to Javier Baez and Jake Rogers. Over his last three starts, Canning has posted a solid 17:3 K:BB but has gone 0-3 while allowing nine runs. He hasn't picked up a win since snagging one in relief Aug. 19, and his last win in a start was June 24. Canning is currently projected to start in Minnesota next week.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Takes sixth loss

    Canning (7-6) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over 5.1 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Guardians.

    This is just the second time in five outings since he returned from a calf injury that Canning has allowed more than two runs. Despite his solid work in that span, including a 29:5 K:BB over 25.1 innings, he's gone just 1-2. The 27-year-old has maintained fairly pedestrian numbers on the year with a 4.34 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 120:30 K:BB through 110 innings over 21 appearances (19 starts). Canning is projected for a home start in Detroit next week, though he may move up to pitch in Seattle if Chase Silseth (concussion) isn't cleared to return.
