Cannon ranked as the No. 67 prospect in the 2021 draft class and was one of the highest-ranking collegiate players to go unselected. A draft-eligible sophomore in 2021, Cannon returned for his third season with Georgia in 2022, where he continued to show some of the best command in the country with a deep arsenal of solid offerings. Cannon is a tall and lean righthander listed at 6-foot-6, 213 pounds, who attacks with a sinker, slider, cutter mix and induces plenty of ground balls and weak contact. He sits around 94 mph and touches 97 with his four-seam fastball but uses a two-seam variant frequently as well. His most used secondary is a slider in the low-to-mid 80s that generated whiffs at a 31% rate and induced plenty of ground balls. A new addition to his arsenal this spring was a cutter around 88-90 mph that gives him another option against lefthanders, and while he didn’t throw the pitch much, he also has a mid-80s changeup. None of Cannon’s pitches grades out as plus, but all of them look like 50- or 55-grade offerings. Cannon is a bit of an old-school pitcher who works in the zone heavily and likes to pitch to weak contact, so it’s possible a team will shorten his pitch mix in pro ball and have him focus on missing more bats, but he has been effective as a groundball artist who rarely issues free passes. Cannon profiles as a back-of-the-rotation starter with a high-likelihood to pitch in the majors.
