Griffin Canning News
The Los Angeles Angels reinstated right-hander Griffin Canning (calf) from the injured list on Sunday and optioned left-hander Kenny Rosenberg to Triple-A Salt Lake following Saturday's game in a corresponding move. Canning's calf injury wasn't all that serious, as he was placed on the injured list back on Aug. 1. The 27-year-old right-hander is a candidate to be used in relief in Sunday's contest against the Houston Astros on the road. It's unclear when he'll return to the Halos' starting rotation. Canning has been decent so far in 2023, going 6-4 with a 4.46 ERA (4.60 FIP), 1.24 WHIP, 25 walks and 91 strikeouts in 84 2/3 innings of work in his 16 starts. His 9.7 K/9 mark is the highest of his four-year career.
The Los Angeles Angels placed right-hander Griffin Canning (calf) on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to July 29) on Tuesday with right-calf tightness and recalled right-hander Victor Mederos from Double-A Rocket City in a corresponding move. Canning was scratched from his start on Monday against the Atlanta Braves with general soreness, but now he'll miss at least the next two weeks with a calf injury. The 27-year-old's injury isn't very serious, though, so he should be ready to rejoin the team's starting rotation when he's eligible in the middle of August. Canning has been much better on the mound for fantasy managers in the last two months, and he's gone 6-4 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 91 strikeouts in total over 16 starts (84 2/3 innings) in 2023.
Los Angeles Angels right-hander Griffin Canning has been scratched from his scheduled start on Monday against the Atlanta Braves with "general soreness" that lingered a bit longer than normal after his last start. Canning isn't overly concerned, though, and he's hoping to rejoin the starting rotation in a few days. With Canning out on Monday, right-hander Chase Silseth will get the spot start in an incredibly difficult matchup against the first-place Braves. In 10 appearances (two starts) for the Halos in 2023, the 23-year-old has a 4.44 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 25 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings pitched. Avoid him as a fantasy streamer. Canning has been solid in his last two starts, allowing four earned runs on 13 hits while walking only three and striking out 20 in 10 2/3 frames.
Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Griffin Canning didn't take the step forward in his second season that many had hoped for. In fact, his WHIP took a slight downturn to 1.37 due to an elevated walk rate of 9.7%. Otherwise, his peripherals were mostly the same as 2019 and produced a ho-hum profile from a fantasy perspective. There are some silver linings, though. First, he never got truly beat up, never yielding more than four earned runs in a start. Also, he was at his best in his final two starts of 2020, giving up one ER in each while striking out 17 in his final 11 innings.Canning may not be ready to make huge strides to fantasy stardom but he offers a high degree of safety at the back end of a rotation. He is still experimenting with his four-pitch mix to keep hitters off balance but must throw more strikes to last longer into games. Canning's ADP of 305 makes him an afterthought in most drafts. He offers more safety than other young hurlers going around that range such as Mitch Keller and Domingo German but the ceiling may not high enough to entice drafters.
