  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Homers among three hits

    Canha went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Rays.

    Canha opened the scoring Monday night with a 392-foot solo shot off Zack Littell in the first inning. The 35-year-old veteran later added a second RBI via a single in the fifth inning. Canha has become quite comfortable with his new Detroit team, generating four homers with 11 RBI and 11 runs while slashing .247/.396/.479 over 91 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Idle Saturday

    Canha isn't in the Tigers' lineup Saturday against the Twins.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Reaches four times Thursday

    Canha went 2-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers.

    Canha continues to provide steady production for the Tigers, as he has an .837 OPS across 18 games. The veteran outfielder recorded a .755 OPS last season and has actually only finished above .800 once during his MLB career, which came back in 2019 when he posted a .913 OPS and hit a career-high 26 home runs with the Athletics. Even if he slips into the .700 range, Canha should remain a solid if not spectacular fantasy asset.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Homers in victory

    Canha went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk during Friday's 8-2 victory over the Twins.

    The 35-year-old outfielder put the Tigers in front early with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. He later walked and came around to score on a Matt Vierling single during the fifth frame before driving in Jake Rogers on an RBI single of his own in the sixth. Canha is now slashing .243/.404/.541 with three homers and six RBI across his first 47 plate appearances with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Taking seat Monday

    Canha is not in the lineup for Monday's contest in Pittsburgh, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Riley Greene is in left field and Matt Vierling is in right while Canha gets a day off. The 35-year-old is off to a nice start at the plate this season, putting up an .853 OPS with a couple home runs.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Launches second homer

    Canha went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 win over the A's.

    Canha extended Detroit's lead to 4-2 with a 414-foot solo shot off JP Sears, his second homer of the year. Canha has just five hits through his first 21 at-bats this season, though three have gone for extra bases. His OPS is up to 1.000 through the first seven games of 2024 after he slashed .262/.355/.400 with 11 homers, 62 RBI and 51 runs scored across 139 games between the Mets and Brewers last year.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Not in lineup for first game

    Canha is absent from the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader versus the Mets.

    He'll likely be back in the lineup for the second contest, but Riley Greene and Matt Vierling will serve as Detroit's starting corner outfielders in the early game while Canha rests. Canha is 4-for-13 with a home run and a 3:3 K:BB in his first four tilts this season.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Canha is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.

    Canha is 4-for-13 with a home run, three walks, three RBI, three runs and a stolen base through four games, but he'll take a seat for Tuesday's contest. Riley Greene will shift to left field while Matt Vierling receives a start in right.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Big day in Saturday's win

    Canha went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, three runs scored, three RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 7-6 extra-inning win over the White Sox.

    The veteran outfielder's sixth-inning solo shot off right-hander Michael Soroka got the Tigers rolling toward a comeback from an early 6-3 deficit. Canha has produced double-digit homers and steals twice in the prior three seasons, and he hasn't had an OBP below .355 since 2018, giving him a solid fantasy floor even if he lacks an exciting ceiling. He also seems to have a spot in the heart of the Detroit order locked into place -- he hit fourth on Thursday against southpaw Garrett Crochet before batting fifth Saturday against Soroka.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Seems set for regular role

    Canha appears to be set for a regular outfield role with the Tigers this season, particularly if the team carries a short bench into the regular season, Jason Beck of reports.

    The veteran Canha was deployed as a short-side platoon player for parts of last year, though it looks like he'll have a regular role in Detroit. The Tigers have Riley Greene, Parker Meadows and Canha penciled into starting outfield jobs, with utility players Matt Vierling, Zach McKinstry and Andy Ibanez on hand for depth. Akil Baddoo may be on the outside looking in at this point, and without another established outfielder on the roster, Canha may be asked to take on a heavy load.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Team option for '24 picked up

    The Tigers exercised Canha's $11.5 million team option for 2024 on Monday.

    The decision to pick up the option was merely a formality, as the Tigers acquired Canha from the Brewers on Saturday with the intention of having him be a part of the 2024 roster. The 34-year-old doesn't bring the most exciting fantasy skill set to the table, but he was a serviceable producer in the five main rotisserie categories in 2023, batting .262 with 11 home runs, 11 stolen bases, 62 RBI and 51 runs across 507 plate appearances between the Mets and Brewers. He was deployed as a short-side platoon player for parts of the season, but expect him to be a mainstay in the lineup against right-handers while he joins a Tigers lineup that still has plenty of holes.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Dealt to Detroit

    The Brewers traded Canha to the Tigers on Saturday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Blake Holub, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Rather than officially making a decision on Canha's $11.5 million club option, the Brewers will ship the 34-year-old across Lake Michigan to give Detroit a right-handed bat in the outfield. Canha slashed .262/.355/.400 across 507 plate appearances with the Mets and Brewers in 2023, but he saw a notable uptick in performance with Milwaukee during the second half of the season.
