Canham was the Cape's 13th best prospect after showing up late after Oregon State won the College World Series. He was a co-captain for the championship Beavers, and was draft-eliglble as a sophomore after red-shirting his freshman year (he had surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow). He was drafted in the 41st round by the Cardinals, but will return for his junior year of eligibility and no doubt will go much higher than that next June. Other than batting left-handed, Canham is a similar prospect to Josh Donaldson of Auburn in that he is athletic and has only spent the last two years behind the plate (previously playing third base). He hit very well on the Cape, finishing sixth in the batting race and his slugging percentage was fourth best. Canham faded in May which brought his college stats down, but he rebounded well in the regionals and at the CWS. He probably will never be better than average defensively, but with his bat he could be a solid catcher at the big-league level. He's probably a 2nd to 5th round pick, likely going closer to the 2nd since catchers are always at a premium.
