Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Smashes two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in a 7-6 victory against the Orioles on Friday.

The pair of homers broke a modest streak of six straight games without a home run. Calhoun is heating up in the homer department as the season nears its finish line; he smashed nine in August and now has a pair already this month. Calhoun is batting .269 with 18 home runs, 40 RBI and 37 runs in 238 at-bats this season.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The Rangers will withhold two of their lefty-hitting regulars (Calhoun and Shin-Soo Choo) from the starting nine with southpaw Yusei Kikuchi twirling for Seattle. Scott Heineman and Danny Santana will serve as Texas' starters in the corner outfield in the series finale.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Cranks 16th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Mariners.

Calhoun got the scoring started with a solo home run off Felix Hernandez in the first inning, but unfortunately the Rangers came up short. The long ball was No. 16 for the talented 24-year-old, who has continued to make an impact on the Texas lineup. Through 57 games this season, he's slashing .284/.326/.569 with 35 runs scored and 35 RBI.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Goes deep again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-0 win over the White Sox.

His sixth-inning shot proved to be the game-winning hit as Kolby Allard and the Rangers bullpen combined on a shutout. Calhoun has now homered in back-to-back games with four long balls in his last six contests, and the 24-year-old is establishing himself as a key part of the future in Texas.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Carries offense in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Friday's 8-3 loss to the White Sox.

Things were looking good for Texas when Calhoun took Dylan Cease deep in the first inning, but the offense went cold after that. The 24-year-old is putting on a power display in August, going yard three times in the last five games and slashing .273/.317/.584 with seven homers and 12 RBI in 21 contests this month.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Swats 13th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Angels.

The 24-year-old has caught fire, slashing .433/.453/.733 over his last eight games with three solo shots. Calhoun's now hitting .295 with 12 homers and 29 RBI through 50 games with the Rangers this year, and he finally appears to be turning into the hitter his minor-league numbers suggested he could be.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Connects for 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a solo homer in Tuesday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Angels in the first game of a doubleheader.

The left fielder lifted a pitch from Andrew Heaney out to right field for the only run the Rangers could muster. The 24-year-old has now hit seven home runs since July 26, going 25-for-80 over that 22-game span. Calhoun now sports a .291/.337/.560 slash line in 175 at-bats this season.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Sitting vs. southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not starting Monday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Calhoun will give way to Shin-Soo Choo in the outfield Monday against lefty Dillon Peters. He's hitting .250 against left-handers this season compared to .295 against righties, though he owns a higher slugging percentage against southpaws (.652 vs. .500).

August 17, 2019 05:52 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Gets day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is out of the starting lineup Saturday against the Twins, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Shin-Soo Choo will start in left field and lead off against right-hander Jose Berrios. Calhoun has started nine of the last 10 contests and is slashing .276/.382/.586 with three home runs, five runs scored and four walks in 34 plate appearances during that stretch. The young outfielder owns an .841 OPS in 129 plate appearances against righties.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Slugs 11th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 13-6 loss to Minnesota on Thursday.

Calhoun put the Rangers on the board in the fifth inning with a blast to right field. Though he has batted only .209 thus far in August, Calhoun has posted his highest home run total in any month this season with four long balls in 12 games. On the season, the 24-year-old is slashing .274/.321/.554 with 11 homers and 27 RBI in 168 plate appearances.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Goes yard in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 19-4 loss to Toronto.

Calhoun launched his 10th homer, and fifth in the 14 games since his callup, in the seventh inning. The issue with Calhoun has always been finding at-bats for him in a crowded outfield, but Joey Gallo's wrist injury has opened a regular spot in the starting lineup. Calhoun is hitting .269/.321/.673 with 10 extra-base hits and 13 RBI since he was recalled July 25.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Resting for doubleheader game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Indians.

Calhoun was scheduled to sit out Tuesday's contest before it was postponed, so his game off will simply roll over to Wednesday. The 24-year-old will likely enter the lineup for the second game in the outfield or at designated hitter, with at least one of Shin-Soo Choo, Hunter Pence, Nomar Mazara or Delino DeShields heading to the bench to make room.

August 6, 2019 04:08 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not in the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland.

Calhoun sits after starting nine straight games, a stretch in which he hit .297/.333/.703 with three homers. Shin-Soo Choo starts in left field in his absence.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Smacks eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Tigers.

The 24-year-old finally seems to be comfortable in the majors, slashing .310/.355/.724 in seven games since his latest promotion with three homers and eight RBI. Calhoun now sports an .868 OPS and eight home runs in 33 games for Texas this season, and he appears to have locked down the starting job in left field for the moment.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Makes fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 8-5 loss to the Mariners.

Calhoun has started four straight games, all against right-handers. He's hit safely in all four contests, going 7-for-16 with a home run, three doubles, four RBI and four runs scored. With the Rangers becoming sellers at the trade deadline, Calhoun could become a lineup regular, even against left-handers. Joey Gallo (wrist) is out through August, and there's talk of Nomar Mazara being dealt, per T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. Throw the name of the 36-year-old Hunter Pence into the trade mix, and there's a clear path for Calhoun to get nightly at-bats.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Doubles off lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Oakland.

The A's brought in lefty specialist Ryan Buchter to face Calhoun, a .200 hitter against southpaws, and he delivered a run-producing double to extend a rally that eventually fell short. The Rangers, who are now 5.5 games out of the second wild-card spot, are in a position to let Calhoun face lefties and improve his results. With Joey Gallo (wrist) sidelined through the end of August, there will be plenty of opportunities to allow Calhoun to grow as a hitter.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Homers in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-3 with a home run, an RBI double, a walk and another run scored in Friday's 5-2 victory over the A's.

Leading off the eighth inning, Calhoun launched a solo homer off Ryan Buchter to extend the Rangers' lead to 5-2. He also swatted an RBI double in the fourth inning and walked in the sixth. The 24-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday to fill in for Joey Gallo (wrist), who is expected to miss at least four weeks. Through 97 plate appearances with the Rangers this season, Calhoun is batting .289/.330/.536 with six home runs, 17 runs scored and 15 RBI.

July 25, 2019 06:40 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Back with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

With Joey Gallo (wrist) expected to miss the next four weeks, Calhoun was brought back from the minors to provide additional outfield depth for the big club. In 26 games for the Rangers this season, Calhoun owns a .277/.313/.489 triple-slash with five home runs and 13 RBI. Delino DeShields is starting in center field against lefty Brett Anderson on Thursday, but Calhoun could see some playing time against right-handers while Gallo is sidelined.

July 16, 2019 05:00 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Banished to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

Calhoun has struggled of late, putting together a .161/.188/.258 slash line with one homer and three RBI over his last 10 contests. With Hunter Pence (groin) back from the injured list, Calhoun will head back down for the time being.

July 15, 2019 09:44 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Back in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-4 loss to Houston.

Calhoun returned to the lineup Sunday after sitting against a left-hander Saturday. It was not an enviable assignment, facing right-hander Justin Verlander, but Calhoun had a first-inning single and scored a run while Houston's ace was in the game. Texas' crowded outfield and Calhoun's 2-for-17 (.118) output against left-handed pitching makes it nearly impossible for him to be in an everyday role.
