Calhoun is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners. With lefty Yusei Kikuchi on the bump for the Mariners, Calhoun will take a seat to clear a spot for the right-handed Peter Bourjos. Calhoun has recorded just one hit in 21 at-bats versus southpaws this season.
Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two walks in the Angels' 11-10 loss to the Mariners on Thursday. The lefty reached base four times in this one, while also smacking his fourth homer of the season with a 414-foot solo blast off R.J. Alaniz as part of a seven-run seventh inning for the Angels. Calhoun remains below the Mendoza Line, hitting just .191 over 68 at-bats, but he's shown the tendency to be streaky in the past, so hopefully this is a sign he's set to get on track and start pumping up the low average.
Calhoun went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's 12-7 loss to the Rangers. The veteran outfielder took Kyle Bird deep in the eighth inning for his third homer of the year. Calhoun is off to another tepid start, and even after Monday's strong performance he still carries a .190/.254/.379 slash line though 15 games.
Calhoun (knee) is back in the lineup Monday against Milwaukee. Calhoun left Saturday's game against the Rangers with a knee bruise after crashing into the outfield wall. He sat out Sunday's contest, but the injury was never expected to keep him out for long, and he's back after missing just a single game.
Calhoun (knee) won't start in Sunday's game against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The Angels have yet to reveal who will replace Calhoun in right field, but the 31-year-old will be afforded at least one day off after bruising his right knee in Saturday's contest. Fortunately for Calhoun, he said he noticed improvement when reporting to the park Sunday and should be available off the bench. Calhoun would seem to have decent odds of rejoining the lineup at some point during the three-game series with Milwaukee that begins Monday.
