    Angels + 107, Watch this Griffin Canning kid!

    Another play on a young pitcher that has high pedigree (2nd round draft pick) he doesn't have the eye popping minor league stats, though he was very good,in large part because he is so talented and moved through the system so fast. Just 28 games pitched in minors before getting in 18 big league games last year. So he has been developing on the fly at the big league level and shown already to belong, with glimpses of very-goodness, maybe greatness.

    This is another kid that has been using the Rapsodo pitching machine software to improve his spin rate, spin axis, and tunneling effects. His 4 seamer already was a big movement, swing and miss pitch, but he learned how to tweak his finger positions to make it more effective.

    Canning's peripherals and advanced pitch movement metrics point to a possible break out year.

    In 3 starts against the A's last year he held them to a .200 batting average over 18 innings. I look for him to get a good start to a strong year today in this day game.

    some added info

    Canning held opponents to a .235 average and posted 96 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings as a rookie last year. He recorded an ERA of 5.30 on the road, despite a strong effort at Oakland on May 29, 2019, when he yielded a run and three hits in six frames. Ramon Laureano went 4-for-6 with two home runs and two doubles against the 24-year-old Canning last season.

    Just look at a player like trout no emotion just a nice guy thatís a great player, not a real fierce competitor and I think that somehow infects the team

    He just doesnít seem like a winner

    He doesnít have any pop to his personality

    I went in on this, sounded good. Was only hoping for an opportunity to hedge and make a few bucks.

    I think, other than the first inning, that didn't happen... and it wasn't enough to hedge.

    Oh well, on to the next. Good luck.
