A’s bring back Mark Canha, send out Kendrys Morales

The A’s unloaded first baseman Kendrys Morales on Monday, designating him for assignment to clear a roster spot for outfielder Mark Canha.

Morales, acquired March 27 from Toronto, hit .204 with one home run and seven RBIs in 34 games with the A’s. He started 23 games at first base and five at designated hitter, mostly while regular first baseman Matt Olson recovered from a broken hamate bone.

Olson returned to action May 7 and hit his first home run in Sunday’s 5-3 loss to Cleveland.

Canha had been on the injured list since April 29 with a sprained right wrist. He was hitting .200 in 18 games, with two homers and four RBIs.
