Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Reports to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun reported to the Rangers' minor-league camp Saturday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

After he was informed Thursday that he wouldn't join the Rangers for Opening Day, Calhoun failed to report to the minors Friday, essentially confirming his dissatisfaction with the roster decision. Given that the 24-year-old doesn't have enough MLB service time to refuse a minor-league assignment, he wasn't really left with many alternatives beyond accepting the demotion. According to Wilson, Calhoun took batting practice Saturday and will play in a minor-league game before flying to Nashville for the start of the Triple-A season.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Delays reporting to Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun, who was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, has not yet officially reported to the minor league club, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Calhoun has 72 hours to report even if it's just a walk down the hall at the Rangers' spring training complex. He was obviously disappointed at the news he received Thursday, and the Rangers gave him that day off; however, he did not report Friday. The outfielder experienced similar disappointment at this time last year and let it affect his attitude in the minors. That concerns manager Chris Woodward, who does not want a repeat of what could be perceived as inappropriate behavior, which could cost Calhoun the respect of teammates.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Bound for Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun was sent to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Given his defensive limitations, Calhoun has to produce with his bat to be worthy of a roster spot. He slumped to a .557 OPS this spring. Hunter Pence will beat him out for a roster spot, but Calhoun will likely return at some point this season.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Knocks in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with three RBI on Tuesday against the Brewers.

The Rangers, for a few reasons, are expected to send Calhoun to Triple-A Nashville. There's already a roster crunch with Texas considering carrying eight relievers, and Calhoun will not get everyday at-bats. Throw in his sub-par defense and the decision becomes easy. Barring Joey Gallo's groin injury lingering longer than expected and opening an outfield spot, the Rangers will get by with Hunter Pence as their fourth outfielder while Calhoun plays daily for Triple-A Nashville.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Not certain to make 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not a lock to make the final 25-man roster as the Rangers will send him to the minors if they decide to keep eight relievers or if they don't want third baseman Asdrubal Cabrera to also serve as the backup shortstop and second baseman, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Calhoun is hitting just .216 with a .598 OPS this spring while getting significant playing time (43 plate appearances). It sounds like he'll begin the season in the minors with the Rangers already planning to keep five outfield/DH types in Joey Gallo, Nomar Mazara, Shin-Soo Choo, Hunter Pence and Delino DeShields.
