  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Continues mashing

    Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    Calhoun is the hottest hitter in the Rangers' lineup right now. The homer, his second in as many games, gives him four over the last four contests. He extended an RBI streak to five games, during which he's driven in eight. Since May 4, Calhoun is slashing .385/.457/.872 with eight extra-base hits, 12 RBI and eight runs scored.

  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Turns around quickly

    Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a walk, a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 10-5 win over the Angels.

    Calhoun was hitting just .167 a week ago but has turned that around in hurry. Over the last seven games, the 34-year-old outfielder is 10-for-24 (.417) with five extra-base hits (three homers), 10 RBI and five runs scored. While the .229 average isn't much to look at, Calhoun is trending well at the moment.

  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Dropped from leadoff

    Calhoun batted fifth and went 0-for-3 in Saturday's 3-1 win over Atlanta.

    Prior to Saturday's game, Calhoun had a three-game run as the leadoff batter against right-handers, but he had an 0-for-10 stretch with two strikeouts in that role. Nathaniel Lowe, the Rangers' best hitter at this point of the season, moved to leadoff. Prior to Calhoun in the leadoff spot, Brad Miller filled the role, but a recent slide prompted him to be dropped to the lower third of the order.

  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Sits versus lefty

    Calhoun is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Calhoun will bow out of the lineup with southpaw Kyle Muller on the hill for Atlanta, ending a streak of five consecutive starts for the veteran outfielder.

  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Moved to leadoff spot

    Calhoun batted leadoff and went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to Houston.

    Calhoun slotted into the leadoff spot for the second consecutive game, with both coming against right-handers.

Against lefties, Marcus Semien leads off while the lefty-hitting Calhoun is typically on the bench.

  • Rangers' Kole Calhoun: Struggling in Cactus League

    Calhoun started in right field and went 1-for-3 with two strikeouts in Friday's spring training game against the Giants.

    Coming off a subpar 2021, the 33-year-old Calhoun has done little to improve his appeal entering 2022. The outfielder has four singles in 19 at-bats. He was limited to just 51 games for the Diamondbacks in 2021 due to a hamstring injury and didn't contribute much when on the field (.670 OPS). Calhoun's slated to start in right field for Texas this season, but the Rangers will keep options open if he repeats last season's performance.
