Kole Calhoun went 3-for-5 with a solo home run as the Angels lost to the Athletics on Saturday.
The home run was his 10th of the season. He will have to pick up the pace a bit if he hopes to match the 26 home runs he hit last year. His home run power may be down a little but most of his other stats are better this year than last. Calhoun's .292 batting average with 44 runs and 40 RBI make him an underrated fantasy commodity.

Kole Calhoun belted a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees.

Calhoun took Michael Pineda deep in the fifth inning to pull the Halos to within 5-3 at the time, but that's as close as they would get. It was Calhoun's seventh longball on the season, and he's now sporting a .300/.377/.465 batting line with 32 RBI.
Jun 7 - 9:53 PM

Kole Calhoun homered and knocked in two runs Friday against the Pirates.

Calhoun also drew a pair of walks. The 28-year-old socked a career-high 26 home runs last season, but he was headed in the wrong way with his plate discipline. He has made major improvements so far this year. He’s sporting a career-low strikeout rate and a career-high walk rate while batting .298/.382/.439 over 53 games.
Jun 3 - 11:00 PM

Kole Calhoun is out of the Angels' starting lineup on Monday night against the Rangers.

It's the first day off this season for Calhoun, who's slashing .290/.368/.407 with three home runs and 21 RBI in 44 games. Rafael Ortega will start in right field and Shane Robinson is in left versus Derek Holland.
May 23 - 3:51 PM

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk against the Twins on Friday.

His seventh-inning blast against Tommy Milone put the Angels in front, but the bullpen wasn’t able to hold it. Calhoun has been the Angels’ best hitter so far, batting .412/.474/.559 through 10 games. Of course, with Mike Trout on his team, he isn’t likely to keep that title for very long.
Apr 16 - 12:34 AM

Kole Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in the Angels' 9-8 win over the Padres on Saturday.

It was Calhoun's first homer of the spring. The Angels apparently plan to bat Calhoun fifth versus righties and second against lefties. That's a change from last month, when Calhoun figured to be in front of Mike Trout on a full-time basis. However, Daniel Nava's big spring changed that. Besides, Calhoun had a .308 OBP last year, so it's not as though he deserves to hit second.
Mar 27 - 1:13 AM

Kole Calhoun went 3-for-3 with two runs scored against the Athletics on Thursday.

All three hits were singles. Calhoun established new career-highs with 26 home runs and 83 RBI last season, but he saw a big bump in strikeouts and drew fewer walks. We wouldn’t bank on similar power numbers in 2016, but getting on base more often and scoring more runs would be a fair tradeoff. He figures to hit second in front of Mike Trout in 2016.
Mar 3 - 7:31 PM

Angels and OF Kole Calhoun avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.4 million contract.

It's about $300,000 above the midpoint of figures that were exchanged earlier this month. Calhoun was arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason as a Super 2 qualifier. He has three more years of arbitration remaining.
Jan 26 - 11:23 PM

Kole Calhoun requested $3.9 million and was offered $2.35 million by the Angels when arbitration figures were exchanged Friday.

MLBTradeRumors.com projected Calhoun to make $3.6 million. The 28-year-old qualified as a Super 2 player, so this will be his first of four arbitration years.
Jan 15 - 5:16 PM

Kole Calhoun has qualified for arbitration as a Super Two player.

This means he'll go through the arbitration process four times as opposed to the usual three. According to Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register and MLB Trade Rumors, the 28-year-old outfielder just barely made the cut-off. Calhoun should get a nice payday after reaching career-highs with 26 home runs and 83 RBI this season.
