Farewell to Mark Canha as Mets continue to sell

Another day, another Met down. New York sends outfielder Mark Cahna to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for young RHP Justin Jarvis, ranked as Milwaukee's No. 30 prospect. The Mets will be paying the remainder of Canha's $10.5 million contract for the rest of the 2023 season, while the Brewers will be on the hook for his $11.5 million team option for next year.


With Canha hitting free-agency at the end of the year, this was a move that Mets fans saw coming from a mile away the minute that the team became sellers following the David Robertson and Max Scherzer trades.


Jarvis has started 17 games between Double-A and Triple-A ball so far this season, putting up a 4.33 ERA with 102 strikeouts in just over 87 innings. The Mets will have to place Jarvis on the 40-man roster following the completion of this season, as he is Rule 5 eligible, otherwise the team risks losing their newest acquisition.


Canha put up a .245/.343/.381 slash line with six homeruns and 29 RBI's in 257 at bats this season.

 

Mark Canha proved to be a fan favorite during his time in Queens, and formed a close relationship with manager Buck Showalter. The Mets continue to sell, with trade buzz surrounding such players as Justin Verlander, Tommy Pham and Brooks Raley. One thing is for sure, tomorrow's 4 PM trade deadline will be a busy one for the New York Metropolitans.
