Mark Canha plays all 3 outfield positions in Monday’s game

Is there anything Mark Canha can’t do?

The reigning 2020 Team MVP is having another fantastic year at the plate. He’s got an .841 OPS, his 141 wRC+ ranks second on the team and 23rd in the majors, and he’s also tied for second on the club in homers and steals. He does all this while batting leadoff and getting on base at a .378 clip, by any means necessary between a mammoth walk rate and an MLB-leading total of HBPs.

And that’s only the offensive side of the ball. On defense he plays a fine corner outfield in both LF and RF, usually drawing metrics around neutral territory, and he puts in full effort with impressive diving catches all over the place.
