Griffin Canning Set For Potential Strong Outing Friday

Los Angeles Angels right-handed pitcher Griffin Canning is slated to take the hill for Fridays game against the Rangers at the newly pitchers friendly Globe Life Park. The Majors newest home turf is yielding the fourth-lowest runs per contest when considering park factor, which when added to the fact Texas entered play Thursday with the third-lowest team batting average (.194) in the big leagues makes for all of the right ingredients for Canning. Of course, he has been impressive himself to begin the year, and particularly, his curveball. Having allowed just three singles with the pitch while amassing eight strikeouts, he has gotten a 56.5% whiff percentage on his curve through his first two starts with an xBA of .098. Canning is an excellent streamer option for those in smaller season-long formats, as well as those on the DFS market.

Griffin Canning Facing Hitters

Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Griffin Canning(elbow) is facing live hitters on Friday at the first day of the team's summer camp workouts. The 24-year-old was shut down back in March with elbow issues. But the promising pitcher is now trending in the right direction after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection. The Angels invested a lot in their offense this offseason, but one of the biggest questions on the team remains the pitching staff. Canning's progression should be handled cautiously, but he is trending towards being able to contribute when/if the season gets underway, which would make him a flier in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.

Angels Hopeful Shohei Ohtani, Griffin Canning Will Be Ready

Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon said he's "very" hopeful that starting pitchers Shohei Ohtani (elbow), Griffin Canning (elbow) and Felix Pena (knee) will be ready for Opening Day in late July. None of the three were likely to be able to pitch on the original Opening Day, but the coronavirus pandemic has bought them extra time to heal. Ohtani was expected to be ready to hit right away, but the Angels weren't expecting him to be a rotation option until sometime in May. The Japanese two-way star has more upside with his right arm, but he also provides a nice power/speed combination with the bat. Tommy John surgery is still a possibility for Canning, so he's merely a late-round flier in deeper leagues. Pena is also an injury risk and has limited fantasy upside as a potential swingman.
