Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in the Angels' 5-1 win over the Mariners on Friday.
Calhoun is 7-for-19 with two walks and four runs scored in five games. If only he were any sort of basestealer, he could be a top-20 fantasy outfielder with regularity. As is, he's not quite so valuable, though he's perfectly solid. Apr 8 - 1:55 AM

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 in Wednesday's win over the A's.

All three of Calhoun's hits went for singles. He also scored a run in the victory. The 29-year-old outfielder put in a nice all-around campaign in 2016, when he slashed .271/.348/.438 while bopping 18 homers and driving in 75 runs over 595 at-bats. He has cracked double-digit home runs in each of the last three seasons, including a career-best 26 in 2015.

Kole Calhoun went 1-for-3 with an RBI double as the Angels topped the Brewers 6-5 in Cactus League play on Friday.

Calhoun is off to a strong start this spring, hitting .429 in the early going. He's set to open the season hitting second in front of Mike Trout which should once again lead to ample run-scoring opportunities for the veteran outfielder.
Mar 3 - 7:52 PM

Kole Calhoun went 1-for-2 with an RBI single in Monday's 5-3 win over the Padres.

He promptly got picked off first base after his third-inning single. Calhoun figures to play every day and bat early in the lineup, making him a good bet to repeat the .271/.348/.438 slash line with 18 home runs, 91 runs scored and 75 RBI he produced last year.

Angels signed OF Kole Calhoun to a three-year, $26 million contract extension.

The deal includes a $14 million option for 2020. Jeff Flecher of the Orange County Register passed along the final contract details. The two sides just recently agreed to a one-year, $6.35 million contract for 2017, but now the Angels have bought out all three remaining years of arbitration and potentially his first year of free agency. The 29-year-old is coming off a strong season where he batted .271/.348/.438 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI over 157 games.
Jan 18 - 3:04 PM

Angels and OF Kole Calhoun avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.35 million contract.

Calhoun was eligible for arbitration for the second time. He's batted .266/.327/.436 in his three full seasons for the Angels.
Jan 13 - 12:14 PM

Kole Calhoun (core muscle surgery) has been cleared for all baseball activity, per Angels general manager Billy Eppler.

Calhoun underwent surgery in October to repair a bilateral core muscle injury. He's had plenty of time to rest up and should be 100 percent for spring training. The 29-year-old is coming off a strong season where he batted .271/.348/.438 with 18 home runs, 75 RBI, and 91 runs scored over 157 games.
Jan 10 - 10:05 AM

Kole Calhoun will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a bilateral core muscle injury.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. William Myers in Philadelphia. Calhoun will need 6-8 weeks of recovery time, but he can begin his normal offseason training from there and should be ready for spring training. Calhoun batted .271/.348/.438 with 18 home runs and 75 RBI over 157 games this season.

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 and hit his 18th homer Wednesday as the Angels beat the A's 8-6.

Calhoun wasn't very good the first two months of the second half, but he's torn it up lately, going 11-for-18 with five doubles in his last five games. His .350 OBP is a nice surprise; he hit 26 homers last year, but he came in at just .308 in the OBP department then.

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Astros.

He had an RBI single in the eighth inning and a ground rule double in the ninth to drive in another run. He has a .264 batting average with 17 home runs, 70 RBI and 88 runs scored after 150 games. He is a solid fourth fantasy outfielder.

Kole Calhoun is back in the Angels' lineup Friday.

Calhoun was away for a few days following the birth of his son. He's in right field and batting second against Doug Fister and the Astros.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 04:41:00 PM

Kole Calhoun is expected to return to the Angels starting lineup on Friday.

The right fielder missed the past three games to be with his wife for the birth of his son. The 28-year-old will return to a .263/.342/.418 slash line with 17 homers and 68 RBI on the season.
Thu, Sep 22, 2016 09:20:00 PM

Kole Calhoun is not in Monday's lineup against the Rangers.

No word yet on the reason for his absence. Shane Robinson will make the start in right field and bat ninth against Texas left-hander Martin Perez.

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-4 with an RBI and scored two runs in a win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He doubled home a run in the seventh inning then rode home on a Mike Trout single. Calhoun is batting .265 with 17 home runs, 68 RBI and 86 runs scored. He makes for a good supporting player on fantasy rosters but is not worthy of an everyday starting slot on championship-caliber teams.
Sun, Sep 18, 2016 01:39:00 AM

Kole Calhoun doubled and ripped a solo home run in Monday's win over the Athletics.

Calhoun led off the second inning with a longball and reached base an additional two times after that with a double and a walk. The Angels had no trouble against rookie Raul Alcantara and the A's bullpen, as they pounded out 14 hits and 10 runs. Calhoun's power has predictably fallen off after last year's 26-homer campaign, but he's remained productive with a .270/.350/.430 batting line and 16 longballs.
