Player Outlook
In his age-34 season, Mark Canha continued to cruise along as a steady if not spectacular veteran. The outfielder began 2023 with the Mets, but with New York falling out of contention, he was dealt to Milwaukee at the deadline. Canha earned a regular role with the Brewers and played well, posting five home runs, 33 RBI and an .800 OPS across 50 games. For the full season, he recorded 11 home runs, 62 RBI and a .755 OPS over 139 games. Now in his first season with the Tigers following an offseason trade, Canha is likely to post similar numbers. He has a career .772 OPS and has hit 20 or more long balls once in nine years. His career high in RBI is 70, and he recorded 61, 61 and 62 RBI the last three years, respectively. In short, Canha is a solid and consistent player, though he's best viewed as a depth piece in most fantasy leagues. The playing time should be there at least on a Detroit team that is still searching for consistent offense.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Tallies two hits, steal in win

    Canha went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Thursday's 7-2 win over the Nationals. He also stole a base. Canha extended his hitting streak to three games, and he's recorded a stolen base in two of those contests. That gives the veteran four steals for the season, and while he's not known for his speed at this point in his career, Canha did swipe 11 bases last year in 12 chances. He's a smart and efficient baserunner who can contribute a little bit in that category, though fantasy managers shouldn't expect huge numbers the rest of the way.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Expects to play Sunday

    Canha (hip) expects to play a full game Sunday versus the Red Sox, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. Canha is dealing with a psoas strain in his left hip and his ability to return to the lineup Sunday will be a big test for his status moving forward. If he suffers a setback, the 35-year-old will likely head to the injured list.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Back in lineup

    Canha (illness) is batting third as the Tigers' designated hitter for Friday's game against the Astros. Canha has been dealing with an upper respiratory illness and missed a pair of games due to the issue. However, he seems to be on the mend, as he'll be making his first appearance since May 6.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Held out again Wednesday

    Canha (illness) remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's contest in Cleveland, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Canha was held out of Tuesday's 11-7 win due to an upper-respiratory illness and will sit out again Wednesday. The Tigers are off Thursday, so Canha will perhaps be ready to roll for Friday's series opener versus the Astros. Colt Keith will get the start at designated hitter Wednesday in Canha's stead.

  • Tigers' Mark Canha: Homers among three hits

  • 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: Getting day off

    Canha is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers. It looks to be a routine day off for the veteran outfielder. With Canha getting some rest, Riley Greene will be in left field and Wenceel Perez will handle right.

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: 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.

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

  • 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 MLB.com 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.
