Athletics News: Oakland Gets Good Mark Canha Injury Update
Oakland Athletics outfielder Mark Canha has been sitting on the injured list for the last several weeks with a right hip strain. However, it looks like the veteran is ready to put those injury woes behind him judging by his latest update.
The Athletics were the recipients of some great news to start the weekend as the club activated Canha from the 10-day IL. He'll be back in the lineup for Oakland's tilt against the Cleveland Indians on Saturday.

Canha has been one of the main contributors that have helped the Athletics to a 53-40 record so far this season. He has a career-high 4 triples while also recording 11 home runs, 33 RBI and 7 stolen bases. He's managed to accomplish all of that on a .255/.375/.450 slash line, which he'll look to carry over into the second half of the 2021 MLB season.
With Canha returning against the Indians, he'll be trying to continue the success that he's already had against them throughout his career. He's faced Cleveland 18 times in the past, putting up 2 HR and 11 RBI in 56-at bats while slashing .268/.339/.482.
The Athletics will enter Saturday's contest against the Indians as the -186 favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
