Griffin Canning earns third win of the year in win over Dodgers

Angels' SP Griffin Canning (3-2) gave up one run on six hits, three walks, and four strikeouts over 5.2 innings pitched on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Canning has put together two excellent starts in a row, giving up just one run over his last 11 innings pitched. Canning ranks in the top-11% of all pitchers in whiff percentage so far this season, and so long as he can remain consistent, he should contend for a starting spot in your lineup.

Griffin Canning earns second win of the year on Saturday

Griffin Canning (2-2) gave up one unearned run on three hits, two walks, and nine strikeouts in 5.1 innings pitched on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Canning rebounded in a big way after giving up six earned runs in just 2.1 innings pitched in his last outing against the Astros. The home run ball has plagued Canning's season so far, but not on his start on Saturday. Canning should remain on waivers for now, but keep an eye on him in case he continues to pitch as effectively as his Saturday start.

Griffin Canning surrenders six earned runs in loss to the Astros

Griffin Canning gives up six earned runs on on six hits, two walks, and three strikeouts over 2.1 innings pitched on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The home run ball continues to plague Canning, giving up six homers in just 15 innings pitched on the year. That checks out to 3.6 HR/9 for Canning, a number that makes him a risky fantasy play. With that metric alongside his 8.40 ERA, Canning should remain on waivers.

Griffin Canning earns first win of the season in Tuesday's win over Texas

Griffin Canning pitched gave up two runs on two hits with two strikeouts over 2.1 innings of relief work on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Canning relieved Shohei Ohtani, who was on a 75-pitch limit on Tuesday. Aside from giving up a solo home run to Nick Solak in the top of the sixth inning, Canning looked sharp. He continued to produce soft contact and swings and misses, two metrics that Canning ranks in the top-20% of all MLB pitchers. However, his home run issues and 5.68 ERA prevent Canning from being a fantasy-relevant pitcher for the time being.
