  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Lands deal with Rangers

    Calhoun signed a contract with the Rangers on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Calhoun's $9 million team option was declined by the Diamondbacks in early November after he slashed .235/.297/.373 with five homers, 17 runs and 17 RBI across 51 appearances last year. Although he dealt with hamstring issues in 2021, he'll likely be in the mix for a starting role in 2022.

  • Kole Calhoun: Diamondbacks decline option

    The Diamondbacks declined Calhoun's $9 million club option for 2022 on Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Calhoun played in only 51 games for Arizona during the 2021 season while battling injuries, and he struggled when available with a .235/.297/.373 slash line, five homers, 17 RBI and 17 runs in 182 plate appearances. The 34-year-old may need to settle for a minor-league deal during the offseason.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Collects two hits in loss

    Calhoun went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to San Francisco.

    Calhoun got the start in right field, just the third time over the last eight games the veteran was in the starting lineup. He's batting .308 (8-for-26) with two home runs and seven RBI in 10 games since being activated off the injured list. There's very little chance the Diamondbacks will bring Calhoun back in 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Slugs fifth long ball

    Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-2 loss to the Dodgers on Friday.

    Calhoun got Arizona on the board in the second inning with a solo shot to right off Los Angeles starter Tony Gonsolin. The outfielder now has hits in four consecutive games, all of them of the extra-base variety, and has showed well following a month-long absence.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Expected to start Wednesday

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo expects to start Calhoun in right field Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Calhoun has yet to start in the field since coming off the injured list last Friday. He served as the designated hitter for three games over the weekend while the Diamondbacks were in Houston.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: No DH, no Kole

    Calhoun did not play in Monday's 11-4 loss to Atlanta.

    Calhoun was activated from the injured list last Friday and served as the designated hitter in all three games over the weekend in Houston, but he was held out of the starting lineup once Arizona was back in an National League city. Calhoun's usual position, right field, was occupied by Henry Ramos. The Diamondbacks are evaluating or giving opportunities to several players younger than Calhoun. It doesn't mean he won't play again this season, but the veteran may no longer be a regular presence on the diamond.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Delivers in extra inning

    Calhoun went 1-for-5 with a single, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 6-4 extra-inning win over Houston.

    Calhoun, who was activated from the injured list Friday, made a second consecutive start at designated hitter and delivered a run for the Diamondbacks. After homering in his return Friday, Calhoun singled home the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning then came around to score on Daulton Varsho's two-run, cushion-needing home run. With the Diamondbacks looking to give younger players opportunities, it's uncertain if Calhoun will be the primary right fielder, his usual spot, once Arizona resumes play against National League teams and will not have the benefit of the DH. Right field has been a pathway for playing time for Pavin Smith, Jake McCarthy and Varsho.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Homers in return

    Calhoun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks Friday in a loss to the Astros.

    The veteran outfielder was activated from the injured list earlier Friday after missing over a month with a hamstring strain. He broke a scoreless tie with his solo shot in the sixth inning and also drew two free passes. It has been an injury-plagued season for Calhoun, who has been limited to 37 games and 145 plate appearances. He has only four homers on the campaign, putting into serious peril his streak of seven straight seasons with double-digit long balls.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Activated from injured list

    Calhoun (hamstring) was activated off the injured list and will start Friday against Houston, batting fifth and serving as the designated hitter.

    Calhoun missed over a month with a hamstring strain but is ready to go after appearing in just a single official rehab game. He's hit an unremarkable .238/.293/.354 in 140 plate appearances this season and is a 33-year-old on an expiring contract (assuming the Diamondbacks don't pick up his option), so he could find himself sitting regularly as the team tries out younger players down the stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Plays in intrasquad game

    Calhoun (hamstring) was cleared to play in an intrasquad game Sept. 3, but the outfielder has yet to complete a running program, MLB.com reports.

    Calhoun is taking live at-bats and participating in outfield drills, but until he's able to run the bases at 100 percent, the Diamondbacks likely won't identify a target date for his return from the 10-day injured list. The 33-year-old has been sidelined since Aug. 11 with the strained left hamstring.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Adds more activity

    Calhoun (hamstring) is working through a running program and practicing in the outfield.

    Calhoun started his rehab by taking live at-bats and now adds running and outfield work to the program. The next major step for the outfielder is to combine all three activities in a game situation.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Taking at-bats, running soon

    Calhoun (hamstring) has been taking at-bats in "B" games at the Diamondbacks' training facility, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Calhoun is taking at-bats only and not running nor playing the field. A running-progression program is expected to begin this week. It's unclear what the team plans for Calhoun, who will be 34 and without a contract this offseason, once he's ready to compete again.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Back on injured list

    Calhoun was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain Thursday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    Calhoun returned from the injured list July 10, but his season will be put on hold once again after he suffered another hamstring issue in Wednesday's game against the Giants. The 33-year-old missed over two months with a hamstring injury earlier in the year, but it's not yet clear how long he'll be sidelined with his current injury.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Leaves with strained hamstring

    Calhoun was removed from Wednesday's game against the Giants with a strained left hamstring.

    Calhoun walked during the second inning and appeared to suffer the injury while making a head-first slide into third base, leading to his prompt removal from the contest. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it's a concerning development as he missed two months earlier this season after undergoing surgery on the same hamstring.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Not starting Thursday

    Calhoun is on the bench for Thursday's game against the Giants.

    Sporting a .190 average and .547 OPS against left-handed pitching this season, Calhoun takes a seat with southpaw Alex Wood starting for the Giants. Pavin Smith is playing right field and batting fifth.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: On bench versus southpaw

    Calhoun is not in the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

    Calhoun started the last eight games and will head to the bench Sunday with left-hander Julio Urias starting for Los Angeles. Josh Reddick will take over in right field for the Diamondbacks.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Connects on third homer

    Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in an 8-3 defeat to the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Calhoun slugged a two-run home run in the fourth to bring Arizona within one run of Los Angeles' lead and later singled in the sixth. It was the outfielder's first home run since April 25 and he now has three long balls in 28 games after hitting 16 in 54 games last season.

  • Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Moves to leadoff

    Calhoun batted leadoff and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

    Calhoun has slumped since coming off the injured list July 10, going 4-for-37; however, manager Torey Lovullo opted to slot the veteran into the leadoff spot in order to get him as many at-bats as possible. That serves the dual purpose of getting him more at-bats with which to dial in his swing, which, if it leads to improvement, would make Calhoun more attractive leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline.
