Calhoun went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's spring game against Kansas City.
Calhoun is 4-for-10 with a home run, five RBI and five walks in six spring appearances. He's batted out of the three hole in four games with one game at cleanup and another batting sixth. The 32-year-old outfielder's declining batting average over the last three seasons suggests a lower placement in the order once the regular season kicks off. As spring training draws to a close, and the lineups take on a regular-season look, a better indication of where Calhoun slots in should emerge.
Calhoun signed a two-year deal with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Calhoun will make $16 million guaranteed and could make more than that if the Diamondbacks pick up a team option for the 2022 season. The 32-year-old rebounded from a rough 2018 campaign to hit a career-high 33 homers last season. His .232/.325/.467 slash line was good for a respectable 108 wRC+, but he'll have to keep his power numbers up if he's to remain a good fantasy option in 2020, as his batting average has remained low for three straight seasons. He lines up as Arizona's primary option in right field and should see quite a lot of playing time unless his numbers collapse again.
Calhoun will become a free agent after the Angels declined his option Monday.
Calhoun bounced back from a poor 2018 campaign to hit .232/.325/.467 with a career-high 33 homers, though that evidently wasn't enough for the Angels to keep him around for $14 million. He'll receive a $1 million buyout as he looks for a new home heading into his age-32 season.
Calhoun went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Sunday in the Angels' 8-5 loss to the Astros.
Calhoun wrapped up the 2019 campaign with just three hits in 24 at-bats over his final seven contests, but his .792 OPS still represented a career-best mark for any season in which he played at least 100 games. Though Calhoun was one of the team's more productive hitters, the Angels are expected to decline the 31-year-old's $14 million team option for 2020 later this fall, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. If that's the case, Calhoun could still re-sign with the Angels later in the offseason at a lower salary or look for work elsewhere as a strong-side platoon option in the outfield.
