Kole Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double and four runs scored as the Angels beat the Twins 7-6 on Friday.

He also drove in two runs and stole a base, so it was a big-time fantasy performance. He had been slumping of late, going 3-for-29 and scoring just one run in his previous seven games. Calhoun joined Miguel Cabrera and Charlie Blackmon as the only players with two games of four runs scored this year.
Sep 6 - 1:02 AM

Kole Calhoun reached base in all four plate appearances on Monday as the Angels defeated the Red Sox 4-2.

Calhoun has been red-hot lately. Monday's performance marked his seventh multi-hit game in his last nine games, in which he's batting .415 (17-for-41). Calhoun has been a godsend at the top of the lineup for the Angels, as he's slashing .295/.351/.490 with 13 home runs and 40 RBI on the season.
Aug 18 - 11:06 PM

Kole Calhoun paced the Angels offensive attack in Friday’s 5-4 victory over the Rangers, going 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI.

Calhoun blasted a three-run homer off Nick Martinez in the fourth inning to increase the Angels lead to 4-0. He also singled and doubled in the contest, finishing a triple shy of the cycle. He has been a catalyst atop the lineup this season, slashing .294/.347/.489 with 13 homers and 38 RBI.
Aug 15 - 11:45 PM

Kole Calhoun finished 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-2 victory over the Phillies.

This was his fourth consecutive multi-hit game. The outfielder continues to produce atop the Angels lineup, slashing .288/.343/.476. Calhoun is on pace for 16 homers and 81 runs scored.
Aug 13 - 1:20 AM

Kole Calhoun finished 3-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's walk-off win over the Mariners.

Calhoun hit the first of back-to-back jacks with Mike Trout off of Chris Young in the third inning. Though he has been in a bit of a slump lately, Calhoun has been a productive hitter atop the Angel lineup, slashing .291/.348/.513 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI.
Jul 20 - 7:29 PM

Kole Calhoun went 4-for-5, scoring four runs and ripping an RBI double in Thursday's win against the Rangers.

Calhoun and Mike Trout, the Angels' 1-2 hitters, combined to reach base eight times, score seven runs, and knock in five of their own. It's no surprise that the Angels' win was a laugher. Calhoun, 26, is having a breakout season, slashing .305/.366/.542 with 10 home runs, 25 RBI, and 48 runs scored.
Jul 10 - 11:27 PM

Kole Calhoun homered and finished 3-for-3 in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Calhoun's second consecutive three-hit day raised his average over .300 for the first time this season, as he's now batting .301 with an .882 OPS. His homer was his ninth home run of the year, and he also scored on an Albert Pujols single in the third inning. He's scored 42 runs in 52 games this season and should approach 100 atop the Angels lineup.
Jul 6 - 9:26 PM

Kole Calhoun finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored, and the Angels completed the doubleheader sweep with a 7-5 win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Calhoun has been on a tear in recent days, as Tuesday's nightcap was his fourth multi-hit game in his last six contests. The homer, his eighth of the year, was also his third in the last nine games. The dual threat has been rather quiet on the basepaths this season, perhaps due to the ankle injury that forced him to miss over a month of games, but he's batting a helpful .284/.345/.494 at the top of a potent Angels lineup and should continue to fill the stat sheet going forward.
Jul 2 - 12:47 AM

Kole Calhoun blasted his sixth home run of the season in Sunday's victory over the Rangers.

Calhoun finished the night 1-for-3 and also drew a walk, scored twice and drove home a pair of runs. He continues to see regular playing time atop the Angels lineup against most right-handed pitching, making him a nice option as a fourth or fifth outfielder in mixed leagues.
Jun 22 - 11:13 PM

Kole Calhoun went 4-for-5 with an RBI single, a solo home run, and three runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Indians.

Calhoun did a great job setting the table ahead of the middle of the Angels' lineup. His home run came with the game already in the bag, as his ninth inning solo blast off of Josh Outman extended the Angels' lead to 8-2 at the time. Calhoun has done well for the Halos at the plate when called upon, slashing .276/.336/.470 with five home runs and 12 RBI in 147 plate appearances.
Jun 17 - 10:54 PM

Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels starting lineup for Sunday night's contest against the Braves.

With opposing southpaw Mike Minor on the hill, Calhoun will get a day of rest while Collin Cowgill patrols center field and hits leadoff for the Angels.
Jun 15 - 4:28 PM

Kole Calhoun had a nice night at the plate in Friday's loss to the Braves, going 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Calhoun one again was hitting out of the leadoff spot in manager Mike Scioscia's lineup. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting .256/.320/.453 with four homers and nine RBI in 117 at-bats on the year.
Jun 13 - 10:47 PM

Kole Calhoun had a leadoff homer and a two-run double Friday against the White Sox.

Calhoun hit at the bottom of the order in his return from the disabled list, but he's getting another look in the leadoff spot now and the nice game tonight could help keep him there. He's certainly a more interesting option in mixed leagues while hitting ahead of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.
Jun 7 - 1:42 AM

Angels activated outfielder Kole Calhoun from the 15-day disabled list.

Calhoun is starting in right field and batting sixth tonight. He was leading off before injuring his ankle, and he'd be a better option in shallow mixed leagues if he can regain that spot. If he hits in the bottom half of the lineup, he'll score far fewer runs and won't make up for it with a bunch of RBI chances, not with Raul Ibanez likely hitting ahead of him.
