I saw quite a bit of Mitch Canham during his time at Oregon State. Regardless of how good a college player is, rarely does one truly look like a major leaguer – like somebody you can picture digging into the batters box at Yankee Stadium or taking the mound at Fenway Park, exactly as he appears at that moment in his college uniform. You know what I’m talking about? Maybe he doesn’t have the mature frame or the confident walk or the emotional calm or the mannerisms most of us take for granted when we watch a lot of professional baseball. Canham had all of those things. Loads of ‘em. It was instantly recognizable, like seeing Phil Nevin for the first time when he was with Cal State Fullerton. I am not at all surprised Canham is moving fast.
