OF Mark Canha - Detroit Tigers

Mark Canha was a key performer down the stretch for the Brewers last season, but a logjam in the outfield led to an offseason trade that sent him to the Detroit Tigers. The 35-year-old has settled in nicely with the Tigers and has continued to be a steady producer with his new team.

Canha has had a consistent MLB career thanks to his ability to get on-base at an elite rate, and that has continued to be the case this season. In 186 plate appearances, Canha is hitting .231, but he is getting on-base at a .355 clip thanks to his outstanding walk rate of 12.9%. He has a wRC+ of 118 on the year, and he has the second most RBIs on the team with 20.

Already with six homers and eight doubles in the young season, Canha's quality of contact has improved from a season ago. His ISO of .167 is the highest since his 2019 season with the Oakland Athletics. Additionally, he's currently sporting a hard-hit rate of 41.9%, which is over a five percent increase from a season ago and his best since 2016.

While his stats might not light up the box score, Canha has provided a nice boost of offense for the Tigers through their first 48 games this season. He brings valuable experience to Detroit's young lineup, and he continues to be a steady and consistent producer in his first year with the Tigers.
