Cameron Cannon
Name: Cameron Charles Cannon
Born: Oct 16, 1997 in Glendale, AZ
College: Arizona
High School: Mountain Ridge HS, Glendale, Ariz.
Ht.: 5'10" / Wt.: 196 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 2nd round (43rd overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2019 (signed for $1,300,000)
Coming out of Mountain Ridge HS in Glendale, Arizona in 2016, Cannon was the D-backs’ 21st-round pick. But instead of signing with his home state’s pro baseball organization, Cannon decided to attend the state’s flagship university and honor his commitment to the University of Arizona. A career .330 hitter with the Wildcats, Cannon is producing another fine offensive campaign in 2019, hitting .370/.463/.582 with 29 extra-base hits through his first 45 games. But while he is hitting well, Cannon’s approach is pull-heavy, and he has just fringe-average power. This season also hasn’t been his best defensively, as he’s committed a career-high 18 errors as of early May. Even with those recent struggles, Cannon is known for having a good arm and overall instincts at third base. He shows enough range to move around the diamond, if necessary, as well. Although he plays mostly third base, Cannon may be best suited to play multiple positions in a superutility role in the future in order to make up for his lack of power.
