Angels RF Kole Calhoun cranks fourth home run of the year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Scioscia: Kole Calhoun now full-time cleanup hitter for Angels
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It's no longer an experiment. Kole Calhoun is now the permanent cleanup hitter for the Angels.

That was the pronouncement of Mike Scioscia, per the Orange County Register. Calhoun is back in that spot for the Monday game in Toronto after batting cleanup in five consecutive games in late April and early May.

Calhoun has certainly not hit for the power one might expect from a cleanup hitter. He has just three home runs - none since April 23. But he has been productive. He has 18 RBI in 129 at-bats and a strong slash line of .302/.359/.434.

Angels bat Erick Aybar leadoff, Kole Calhoun cleanup Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Angels have flipped players in two prominent lineup spots for Monday's matchup with the Blue Jays, as shortstop Erick Aybar will lead off while right fielder Kole Calhoun bats cleanup.

Aybar will lead off for the ninth time this season. He's spent most of the year batting fifth or lower, but he was the team's cleanup hitter on Saturday for the first time this season and reprised the role Sunday.

"What Erick doesn't bring in patience, working counts, he brings in just athleticism and still gets on base at a rate which hopefully will set the table for Mike (Trout) and Albert (Pujols) moving forward," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "And also, we have Johnny Giavotella pushed back to ninth, to try to connect him with Mike. Hopefully there will be some table-setting there that's happening, and we'll get to the big guys in our lineup. "

Calhoun has made 28 starts in the leadoff spot, but he did bat cleanup five times in a row starting on April 30, with Aybar serving as the leadoff man in all five games. The team went 1-4 during that stretch, losing four straight games before going back to Calhoun at the leadoff spot.

"As much as we really like Kole in the leadoff spot, and in front of Mike, I think what we're presented with right now just makes the most sense to go with it this way," Scioscia said. "Guys have had a lot of time to get into their game and aren't there yet, so we need to start to take a little pressure off our pitching staff."

The Angels are road favorites (-123) in Toronto on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia may move up Erick Aybar to leadoff
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he's thinking about moving up shortstop Erick Aybar in the lineup to leadoff while dropping down right fielder Kole Calhoun towards the middle, reports the Orange County Register.

Aybar, who's primarily hit fifth or sixth this season, has been on a recent tear, batting .417 (15 for 36) over his last 10 games.

Calhoun has hit leadoff in 25 of the Angels' 34 games this season, hitting .314 with three homers and 18 RBI.

Angels' Kole Calhoun crushing lefties early in 2015
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun has hit .379/.455/.552 with one home run and seven RBI in 29 at-bats against left-handed pitching this season.

Calhoun's .476 BABIP has helped key his success against southpaws, which has been a large driver of his .294/.350/.431 line. It's a reversal of his production from last season, when he was stronger against righties and delivered a .710 OPS against lefties.

Calhoun has cooled in May after producing a .860 OPS in April, hitting just .250/.317/.306 in 36 at-bats this month. He has a pair of home games against the Rockies on tap before a three-game weekend series against the Orioles.
