Player Outlook
After missing 2022 with a lower-back stress fracture, Griffin Canning's season got off to an inauspicious start as began the campaign on the IL with a groin injury. Fortunately, he required only the minimum 15-day visit and went on to toss a career high 127 innings, starting 22 of 24 outings. He did revisit the IL in late July for a calf injury, but only missed three weeks, though it served to keep his inning in check. Considering Canning hadn't thrown a competitive pitch since 2021, his 4.32 ERA was impressive, but a 3.82 xFIP and 3.80 SIERA indicate he pitched even better. His 19.2 percent K-BB percent ranked 22nd among hurlers throwing at least 120 innings. His pitch mix was similar to before he was hurt, but his four-seamer ticked up 1-mph. Even so, Canning's swinging strike rate dropped from 2021, but his called strike rate improved. There's strikeout upside if he can induce more swinging strikes without losing any called strikes. Canning has always yielded homers at a high rate, so he's best used as a streamer, but he can be a sneaky asset if others are scared off by a seemingly high ERA.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Allows two runs in no-decision

    Canning did not factor into the decision in a win over the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks over 4.1 innings while striking out three. Canning cruised through the first four innings before failing to retire five of the first six batters he faced in the fifth, including Leody Taveras, who took the right-hander deep for a two-run shot. The 28-year-old righty was then relieved by Hans Crouse with one out in the frame, missing out on the chance to secure his fourth win of the season. Canning induced 12 swings and misses on the night but has now gone just 4.1 innings in back-to-back starts while posting a 7:4 K:BB to open the month of July. He's also allowed at least one home run in six consecutive outings and has just one win since May 15 (span of 10 starts).

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Struggles again in loss

    Canning (3-9) took the loss against the Cubs on Friday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 4.1 innings. Canning surrendered a two-run homer in the first inning and allowed two more runs before being pulled with two outs to go in the fifth. This was the first time the righty failed to complete five frames in a start since April 13, and he has now yielded four earned runs four times in his past five outings. On the season, the 28-year-old owns a 4.87 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 67:34 K:BB over 98 innings. He lines up for a home matchup with the Rangers next week.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Struggles continue in no-decision

    Canning did not factor into the decision in a win over the Tigers on Saturday, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four. Canning got himself into trouble out of the gate by giving up a single to two of the first three batters he faced, eventually leading to one run coming home for Detroit in the first inning. He found himself in a similar situation in the fourth, surrendering back-to-back singles to open the frame before allowing two more runs to come across. The right-hander still managed to get through six innings for the fifth time in his last six starts, though he's now allowed four earned runs in three of his last four. Canning has also been tagged for at least one home run in four consecutive outings and has posted five or more strikeouts only one time in six starts this month.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Gets back in win column

    Canning (3-8) allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings to earn the win over the Athletics on Monday. Canning limited the damage to a Tyler Nevin solo home run in the second inning. This strong outing -- Canning's longest of the season -- ended his four-start losing streak. It's just the fourth time in 16 starts he's given up one run or less. The right-hander is now at a 4.72 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 59:30 K:BB through 87.2 innings this season. Canning is projected to make his next start at home versus the Tigers.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Skid continues

    Canning (2-8) allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over five-plus innings to take the loss versus the Brewers on Tuesday. Canning hadn't given up more than four earned runs in any of his last 11 outings, but the Brewers got to him early and often in this contest. He's now lost four straight starts, and he's gone six outings without a win. The right-hander is at a 5.02 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 54:29 K:BB through 80.2 innings over 15 starts this season. Canning is projected to make his next start at home versus the Athletics.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Tagged with seventh loss

    Canning (2-7) took the loss against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk over six innings while striking out three. Canning got himself into trouble early after allowing two of the first three batters to reach base, which Christian Walker would capitalize on with a three-run shot to left field. The right-hander would allow only two hits from that point on, though one of those hits was a second long ball by Walker, putting Los Angeles in a 4-0 hole. Canning had not allowed more than three runs in any of his last seven outings coming in and Thursday marked only the third time this season he's surrendered multiple home runs. He has, however, managed to go at least six innings in three consecutive starts.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Turns in quality start

    Canning (2-6) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two over 6.1 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Astros. Canning picked up his second quality start in a row, but he's lost both of those starts due to a lack of run support. The right-hander has allowed four runs over his last 13 innings, though he hasn't exactly been dominant with a 6:3 K:BB in that span. He's now at a 4.65 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 47:26 K:BB through 69.2 innings over 13 starts. Canning is projected for a road start versus the Diamondbacks his next time out.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Pitches well in loss

    Canning (2-5) allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out four over 6.2 innings to take the loss versus the Mariners on Sunday. Canning was not the problem for the Angels on Sunday -- their offense couldn't figure out Luis Castillo. This was Canning's longest outing of the season and his third quality start in 12 appearances. He shaved down his ERA to 4.69 with a 1.37 WHIP and 45:24 K:BB over 63.1 innings. Canning is projected to make his next start at home versus the Astros.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Hurt by long ball Tuesday

    Canning did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Astros, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings. Canning's only runs against him came off back-to-back home runs from Kyle Tucker and Yordan Alvarez in the first inning. He then settled in from there and pitched four scoreless frames before his day was done after 89 pitches. He's now allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last four starts but has also given up four home runs and nine walks over that span. Tuesday was his fourth start of the year with three or fewer strikeouts, and he's now averaging just 6.3 K/9 after a career-best 9.9 K/9 a season ago. The 28-year-old owns a 5.05 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 36:21 K:BB in 51.2 innings and will line up to face the Yankees next week.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Strong outing in win

    Canning (2-4) earned the win over the Cardinals on Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and three walks over six innings while striking out five. Canning allowed multiple baserunners in two of his first four innings but managed to work his way through it unscathed. He would later surrender a home run to Paul Goldschmidt to open the sixth, but that would be the only run allowed by the right-hander on the night as he cruised to his second win of the season. Canning produced 12 swinging strikes in the contest and now carries a 13:6 K:BB in May to go along with a 1.53 ERA. It also marked his second quality start of the campaign and the third straight outing in which he's allowed two or fewer runs.

Canning is slated to face a struggling Cardinals offense at home in his next start.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Takes loss in quality start

    Canning (1-4) took the loss Sunday against Cleveland, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk across six innings. He struck out five. Canning kept a clean sheet until the sixth inning when Jose Ramirez launched a two-run home run to cap off a 10-pitch at-bat. The long ball was the first Canning has surrendered in over 20 innings dating back to an April 13 start against Boston. Canning completed six innings for the first time all year, notching a quality start and giving up five or fewer hits for a fourth straight outing. He's tentatively scheduled to face the Royals on Friday.

  • Angels' Griffin Canning: Walks five in no-decision

    Canning allowed four runs on three hits and five walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out one during the win over Philadelphia. Canning was tagged with three runs in the first inning but held the Phillies off the score sheet until they pushed across another run in the fifth. He threw just 44 of 86 pitches for strikes and set a new season high with five free passes. Canning had walked three batters over his previous three starts (14.1 innings). His ERA sits at 7.45 with a 21:12 K:BB through 29 frames. Canning is projected to start in Cleveland this weekend.

  • 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: 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 MLB.com 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: 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.
