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.

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.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not in Saturday's lineup against the Astros.

With the Rangers facing southpaw Wade Miley, Calhoun heads to the bench. Delino DeShields starts in center field while Joey Gallo shifts to left field.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Not in Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not starting Thursday against the Astros.

Calhoun had a regular but not quite everyday role in the weeks leading up to the All-Star break. He owns a strong .286/.326/.524 slash line with five homers in 23 games so far this season. Joey Gallo will slide to left field in his absence, with Delino DeShields Jr. starting in center.

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

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 7-4 loss to the Twins on Saturday.

Serving as the left fielder, Calhoun cut the Minnesota lead to 5-4 with his home run off Tyler Duffey in the seventh inning. He had been struggling over his last seven games, going 2-for-20 with zero RBI, but he still has a solid slash line of .291/.333/.544 over 79 at-bats.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins.

Calhoun started the last two contests for the Rangers but will take a seat Friday with southpaw Martin Perez on the mound for the Twins. Danny Santana will start in left field and bat eighth in his absence.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Working out at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun has started working out at second base for the first time since he was injured in mid-May, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

He was a second-base prospect back when he was in the Dodgers' farm system, but it had long been thought that he wouldn't be able to hack it there, making left field and designated hitter more likely long-term destinations. The Rangers say they are starting from scratch with Calhoun's defense at second base, so it is unclear when he might be ready to make his debut there this year in the majors.

July 2, 2019 04:40 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun will sit against lefty Jose Suarez and the Angels on Tuesday.

The Rangers have faced three straight lefties, with Calhoun sitting twice. Joey Gallo starts in left field, with Delino DeShields in center.

June 29, 2019 01:12 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Held out against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

Calhoun has posted an .851 OPS since returning to action June 17, but he is just 2-for-12 (.167) against lefties this season, so manager Chris Woodward decided to hold him out with lefty Brendan McKay getting the start for the Rays. Calhoun has played left field regularly of late, but Shin-Soo Choo will occupy that spot Saturday.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Three hits and a homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a double, solo home run and two runs scored Wednesday against the Tigers.

Calhoun kickstarted his performance in the third inning, smacking a leadoff double deep to right field before ultimately coming around to score his first run of the contest. He once again found success hitting first, leading off the fifth inning with his fourth home run of the season. Since being activated from the injured list June 17, Calhoun has collected a hit in all but one of his starts, including five of the extra-base variety.

June 23, 2019 12:00 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is not in the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

Calhoun started six straight games after returning from a quadriceps injury, going 6-for-23 with a homer and a pair of doubles. Danny Santana will start in left field in his absence.

June 19, 2019 02:36 AM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Records two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Indians.

Calhoun took Nick Wittgren deep in the ninth inning to record his third homer of the season. It was his first hit in seven at-bats since he was activated off the injured list Monday. He should have a strong chance for regular at-bats after the team placed Hunter Pence (groin) on the 10-day injured list.

June 17, 2019 06:28 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Starting in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) has been activated from the 10-day injured list and is starting in left field and batting fifth Monday against the Indians.

As expected, Calhoun will return from the shelf after recovering from a left quad strain. This is good timing for the Rangers, as Hunter Pence was moved to the 10-day injured list earlier in the day with a groin strain.

June 17, 2019 05:52 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Expected back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) will be activated from the injured list Monday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Calhoun completed a four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, clearing the way for him to rejoin the Rangers after nearly a month-long stay on the shelf with a quadriceps injury. With Nomar Mazara nursing a hamstring injury and Hunter Pence (groin) potentially headed to the IL, Calhoun should immediately step back into regular playing time. Prior to getting injured, the 24-year-old went 10-for-23 (.435) with two homers and seven RBI in six appearances.

June 17, 2019 10:48 AM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Could be activated Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) could rejoin the Rangers on Monday after Hunter Pence suffered a groin injury in Sunday's game, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Pence's injury did not look good, so the Rangers are bracing for the possibility of a stint on the IL. In that event, it clears a spot for Calhoun, who spent the last four days on rehab with Triple-A Nashville. Pence's injury along with the status of Nomar Mazara, who is scheduled for an MRI on Monday after being pulled from Saturday's game with soreness in his hamstring, should give Calhoun an opportunity for consistent at-bats in the near term.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) went 1-for-3 with an RBI for Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

Calhoun, who began a rehab assignment Thursday, started in left field but did not play all nine innings. He's eligible to return whenever the Rangers feel he's ready, which could happen next week. The question is whether he'll stay in Texas once Joey Gallo (oblique) is ready later in June. Delino DeShields has played well since being called up and both players still have options.

June 12, 2019 10:12 PM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Cleared for rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Calhoun has been on the shelf since May 22 with a quadriceps injury, but he's been cleared to embark on a rehab stint after experiencing no issues while ramping up his activity at the team's spring training facility this past week. The Rangers have yet to specify an exact return date for Calhoun, but the 24-year-old slugger figures to play in a handful of minor-league games before being activated.

June 6, 2019 08:24 AM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Expected to rehab in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (strained quadriceps) is expected to go to Texas' spring training facility in Arizona next week to continue rehab, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Calhoun ramped up his activity last weekend, so a trip to the spring training facility represents progress in his rehab. He's expected to be out until late June, per the report.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Ramping up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) spent 20 minutes on an elliptical machine Friday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Calhoun is expected to begin running in the field and swinging a bat Saturday. "I feel really good, a lot better than I thought it would be," Calhoun said. "It's healing a lot faster than anybody thought."

May 31, 2019 07:40 AM
Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Could start swinging bat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun (quadriceps) is looking to start swinging a bat in the next couple of days, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Calhoun has been working out in Arlington while on the 10-day injured list and is at least 10 days away from a possible return.
