Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels' lineup Sunday.

It's a day off with the Angels facing lefty Eric Skoglund. Luis Valbuena is also on the bench, as the Halos have Chris Young in right field and Jefry Marte at first base.
Apr 15 - 10:40 AM

Kole Calhoun finished 3-for-5 with two runs scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 7-2 win at Texas.

Calhoun has hit safely in five straight outings, and he has driven in at least one run in each of his past three contests. He'll benefit by the addition of Shohei Ohtani and Justin Upton to the lineup, giving him even more chances to produce runs than in past seasons. Calhoun is a solid fantasy option on the rise, and he could reach 20 homers this season after falling just short in each of the past two campaigns.
Apr 12 - 12:19 AM

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-2 with a pair of singles in Friday’s Cactus League game against the Cubs.

He’s now a perfect 4-for-4 to begin the spring. The Angels are set to lower the right field fence from 18 feet to eight feet this season, which should be good news for the left-handed hitting Calhoun. He’s fallen just short of 20 homers in each of the last two years, but he’s in excellent position to get there in 2018.
Mar 2 - 7:51 PM

Kole Calhoun delivered two hits Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Indians.

The Angels got absolutely torched on Wednesday—Cleveland exploded for 15 runs on 23 hits—but at least Calhoun did his part with a pair of base hits. The 30-year-old right-fielder singled with two outs in the first and later drove in a run with a two-out single to center in the third. Wednesday marked Calhoun’s first outing of the spring.
Feb 28 - 7:12 PM

Kole Calhoun finished 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's home loss against the Mariners.

Calhoun's average took a bit of a nosedive from last season, dropping from .271 to .245, but his power numbers were right in line with his 2016 campaign. He is slashing .242/.331/.385 with one game remaining in the 2017 season.

Kole Calhoun went 0-for-4 in the loss to the White Sox on Monday.

It seemed like Calhoun figured things out in August, but now he's slumping again; he's hit .185 with no homers and two RBI in his last 16 games. In a year in which everyone else is hitting for more power than usual, Calhoun has seen his slugging percentage dip from a career mark of .436 to .384.

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Calhoun came through with an RBI triple in the eighth inning to cut the Athletics' advantage to 3-1, but no further runs would score in the game. The triple was Calhoun's second of the season. He has now picked up multiple hits in three of his last four games. For the campaign as a whole, the 29-year-old outfielder is working to a .249/.335/.398 triple-slash with 17 homers and 65 RBI across 498 at-bats.

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 and delivered a two-run triple in the top of the 11th to help the Angels beat the A's 11-9 on Monday.

The Angels used 12 pitchers on their way to the win tonight. But that's why we love September baseball (note: we don't actually love September baseball). Calhoun's triple, his first of the year, was a grounder down the first base line that got past Matt Olsen and down into the corner. He's now batting .317 with four homers and 19 RBI in 30 games since the beginning of August.
Mon, Sep 4, 2017 09:28:00 PM

Kole Calhoun hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the Angels' 3-2 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

Calhoun went way deep to right field off Nationals starter Tanner Roark in the top of the sixth inning. He also drew a walk in the afternoon victory in Washington, D.C., finishing 1-for-3. The 29-year-old outfielder is now slashing .241/.320/.374 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI in 115 games this season for the Wild Card-hunting Halos.
Wed, Aug 16, 2017 04:17:00 PM

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-4 with two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.

No extra-base knock for Calhoun in his three-hit showing, but three hits are three hits regardless. For the season as a whole, the outfielder is slashing .244/.318/.376 with 13 homers and 47 RBI over the course of 109 games played. He has turned in multi-hit performances in four of his last six games, with a pair of three-hit efforts (including Wednesday's) in that space.

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI single and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the A's.

Calhoun picked up an RBI single in the fifth inning. He has been seeing the ball well of late, having notched seven hits during this weekend set against the A's. For the campaign as a whole, the outfielder is slashing .241/.318/.376 with 13 homers and 46 RBI across 399 at-bats.

Kole Calhoun (hamstring) is back in the Angels' lineup Friday.

It's Calhoun's first start since he strained a hamstring Sunday. He's in right field and batting cleanup against the Athletics.
Fri, Aug 4, 2017 05:49:00 PM

Kole Calhoun (hamstring) expects to return Friday against the Athletics.

Calhoun hasn't been in the lineup since Sunday while recovering from a hamstring strain but is finally ready to give it a go. He'll be available off the bench Thursday against the Phillies and expects to be back in the starting nine for Friday night's series opener. The 29-year-old has slashed .231/.310/.366 with 13 homers, 45 RBI and five steals for the Halos this year.

Kole Calhoun (hamstring) remains out of the Angels' lineup Thursday against the Phillies.

Calhoun hasn't seen the field since injuring his hamstring on Sunday. The Angels have so far held off on placing him on the disabled list, though Calhoun may force their hand if he doesn't improve quickly. Ramon Flores will draw another start in right field and bat ninth versus Phillies hurler Jerad Eickhoff.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Once again, Calhoun's absence opens up value in the way of Ben Revere and Luis Valbuena, both of whom will slot into prime run producing spots against Jerad Eickhoff, who has had a much tougher time with left-handed bats this year. He's never going to win a batting title, but Valbuena's .250 ISO at home vs. RHP makes him a nice boom-or-bust GPP play. Revere's speed makes him a viable punt play across the board out of the leadoff spot.
