Any insight into tonight’s start?

6 BB and 4 WP (!!) in 1.1 IP.

what the hell happened?

I honestly think he’s mentally struggling. He was one of the most visibly affected by Skaggs passing. He was a mentor to Canning and I think he’s emotionally taking it really hard and it’s effecting his game currently.  I would say to bench him till he rights the ship.  Remember he’s a young kid still and this is something that’s going to take time to process. He has the talent and the ability to be a dominant pitcher. But right now its difficult to gauge him when his emotions are probably getting the better of him.

As the schedule-browsing guy here, I happily present to you his upcoming matchups if he sticks in the rotation & doesn't get skipped: vs TOR @DET, @BAL vs KC vs TEX

He was one of those guys I thought would outperform his minor league numbers and so far it looks like he might, stuff shows this is sustainable and could get better too. Last night was a very goo

Didn’t think about this for a second.. thank you.

I actually now remember this being brought up after his last outing, which was poor as well. Everybody takes a tragedy like this differently. Can’t be easy for him, as he was adjusting to life in the bigs as it is, and now to add on to that stress with the passing of a close friend and mentor. 

I hope he can keep his head up

When is his next scheduled start? Thursday or Friday. ESPN showing Thursday but everything else shows Friday. 

Onroto is showing Thursday, Fantrax is showing Friday. 🤔

Originally slated for Friday, so considering some have Thursday I’m assuming it was updated/changed for a reason. I guess we’ll see tomorrow 🤷🏽‍♂️

I'm still holding out hope Canning can turn things around. I just offered Pederson for him to a hopefully frustrated owner coming off last night's outing. He's struggled mightily, but that 13+ swinging strike rate gives me hope!

If you’re in a keeper league this would be a good time to take advantage and make an offer to a frustrated owner. Obviously it’s league dependent but I was able to get him for some draft pick compensation.  He’s flashing a solid K rate and obviously his performance this season is hard to gauge due to the emotional impact he’s faced in regards to the passing of Skaggs.  However, for the long term he’s the projected ace of this team alongside Ohtani. He’s young though, so there’s the expected growing pains but he’s shown promise and last nights results shouldn’t carry much weight due to the circumstances. I don’t believe many starting pitchers would have been successful having to been thrown into an extra inning game at 1am when mentally they’re prepared to start the next day.
