Mark Canhan signed index card on blue sharpie

Mark Canhan was drafted in the 7th round of the 2010 draft, out of University of California, by the Marlins.  Coming out of college he was considered a safe pick, projected to hit for good average, play plus defense and hit for league average power.

He was the Marlins #22 prospect in 2011, and #24 in 2013.  In late 2014 he was traded to the Athletics. He was still a prospect, and his bat was playing like scouts expected. But he was having trouble with the glove, and was a fringy defender. He was playing mostly first, which meant that his bat was probably going to have to carry him to the majors.

He had a fantastic 2015 in AAA, hitting .303/.384/.505 with 20 HR. With numbers like that…you could overlook his defensive shortcomings.  He was solidly on the A’s prospect map.

He made the majors in 2015, and spent the whole season with the A’s. He would hit .254/.315/.426 with 16 HR. A very solid season.

He was injuried early in the 2016 season, and would undergoe surgery in May to repair a left hip impingement and labral tear. He should be back for the 2017 season.
