Calhoun was reinstated from the paternity list Friday to start against the Royals. Calhoun missed just two games while on the paternity list. He'll bat sixth and play right field in Friday's contest.
Calhoun (personal) will be reinstated from the paternity list ahead of Friday's series opener against the Royals. Luis Rengifo was sent back to the minors following Wednesday's game against the Twins to free up a roster spot for Calhoun, who will rejoin the Angels after missing a pair of games attending the birth of his child. Calhoun, who is hitting .238/.323/.490 with nine homers and a pair of stolen bases on the season, should immediately rejoin the lineup against right-hander Brad Keller on Friday.
Calhoun was placed on the paternity list Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Calhoun will spend the next few days away from the team for the birth of his child. Luis Renfigo is expected to be called up Tuesday in Calhoun's place.
Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a home run, walk and three runs in a 13-0 victory against the Tigers on Thursday. It wasn't too long ago that Calhoun was hitting below .200, but he already has nine home runs and supports a .485 slugging percentage. He's also raised his average in May, going 8-for-22 (.364) to begin the month. Overall, Calhoun is batting .223 with 21 RBI, 24 runs and one steal in 130 at-bats.
Calhoun went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk to help the Angels to a 6-2 victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday. Calhoun typically hits leadoff against right-handers, but he was dropped down to sixth in the order thanks to his early-season struggles. He responded by cranking a second-inning two-run shot off Aaron Sanchez. He's hitting just .204 with a .297 on-base percentage, but the 31-year-old is at least providing decent power, as this was eighth home run to go along with six doubles and eight RBI over 113 at-bats.
