A polished righthander who stepped up when Rice lost Jon Duplantier to shoulder tightness, McCanna doesn't wow with plus stuff but he does a good job of sinking his 89-92 mph fastball and mixing in a slider that he locates well, although it doesn't have much depth. His changeup has been a plus pitch at times in his career. McCanna profiles as a back-end starter, but his durability and reliability makes him a relatively safe pick.
