Another clutch home run for Athletics' Mark Canha
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Athletics first baseman Mark Canha has shown a flair for the dramatic this spring.
On Friday, he hit a walk-off, three-run home run, surprising no one.
"The only question was whether he was going to hit it to right or hit it to left," manager Bob Melvin said, per SFGate.
Two days earlier, Canha hit a two-out, two-run, game-tying home run in the ninth inning.
"It’s fun. That’s what I try to tell myself in those situations, just have fun, because I tend to get nervous," Canha said.
Canha is a Rule V pick, meaning the Athletics have to keep him on the MLB roster or risk losing him. He's hitting .267 with three homers and five RBI so far this spring.
A's Melvin: Mark Canha is ahead of Nate Freiman for backup 1B gig
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/26/15) Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that Mark Canha is ahead of Nate Freiman for the backup first baseman job, according to the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday. Melvin indicated a few days earlier that may see playing time in the outfield as well as at first base.|
Canha was acquired after being selected by the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft this offseason. He spent most of his playing time in the minors at first base. He slashed 303/.384/.505 with 20 home runs and 82 RBI in 465 at-bats with Triple-A New Orleans in 2014.
Athletics' Melvin: Mark Canha may see time in outfield
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/24/15) Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that Mark Canha may see playing time in the outfield as well as at first base, the Associated Press reports.
"Canha can go against lefties or righties and even play some outfield," Melvin said.
Acquired after being selected by the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft this offseason, Canha has spent most of his minor-league career at first base but has seen 83 appearances in left field and nine in right field, as well as 29 at third base and one behind the plate. He hit .303/.384/.505 with 20 home runs and 82 RBI in 465 at-bats with Triple-A New Orleans in 2014.
Athletics agree to trade Austin House for Rockies' Mark Canha
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(12/11/14) The Athletics announced pitcher Austin House has been traded to the Rockies Thursday. In exchange for House and cash, the Rockies sent infielder Mark Canha to the A’s.
House has a 3.27 ERA over three seasons in the minors. While playing in Triple-A in 2014, Canha hit .303 with 20 home runs and 83 RBI. The Rockies picked up Canha from the Marlins in Thursday's Rule 5 draft.
