Canha has long been known to scouts in Northern California based not only on his talent but also his ability to produce, first emerging as a sophomore at Bellarmine College Prep, the alma mater of Pat Burrell, when he led the West Catholic Athletic League in home runs. That's no small feat as the WCAL is the top conference in Northern California and one of the top conferences in California. He is a strapping 6-foot-2, 205 pounds and has a good combination of athleticism, strength, skill, and tools. That combination, along with his history of performance, makes Canha one of the safest picks in this draft. He can drive the ball out of the ballpark from pole to pole, and his power to right field really stands out. He's a good bet to hit for average and run production, with a realistic expectation to produce average power. He throws and runs slightly above-average and can man either outfield corner spot, as well as first base, drawing comparisons to Michael Cuddyer.
