Angels Starter Fully Healthy Entering Spring Training; Missed Entire 2022 Season

Great news.

Los Angeles Angels starter Griffin Canning is a full-go at camp this spring.

Canning was expected to compete for the sixth spot in the Angels' rotation last season, but setbacks from a lower-back stress fracture that popped up during the 2021 season ruined his spring and, ultimately, knocked him out for the entire season.

However, Canning has reportedly enjoyed a normal offseason and has completed several bullpen sessions.

The twenty-six-year-old is a former top prospect who has yet to truly break out at the major-league level. He's shown flashes of what was expected of him, but nothing consistent.

Overall, over his first three seasons in the majors, Canning holds a 4.73 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, with 214 strikeouts across 209.1 innings and 41 starts.

He should have a rotation spot for the upcoming season.

He is a former second-round pick by the Angels in the 2017 MLB Draft.
