Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Playing time dries up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun didn't appear in the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Mariners on Thursday.

Calhoun has been glued to the bench for the past four games, as the returns of Adrian Beltre (hamstring), Carlos Gomez (ankle) and Nomar Mazara (quadriceps) from injuries have pushed the top prospect to the bench. Until the Rangers are officially eliminated from playoff contention, it's not expected that Calhoun will pick up consistent at-bats.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

Calhoun has played in five games since being called up Sept. 12. In that time he's gone 1-for-13 (.077) and has struck out four times. He'll head to the bench Sunday as Nomar Mazara starts in left field.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Plates run in first MLB at-bat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun started in left field and went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's 10-3 loss to the Mariners.

After being promoted from Triple-A Round Rock earlier Tuesday, Calhoun quickly made an impact in his MLB debut, delivering a run-scoring base hit in his first at-bat. The lefty slugger, who was the top piece the Rangers took back in the July 31 trade that sent Yu Darvish to the Dodgers, is expected to see at least semi-regular starts in the outfield at least until Carlos Gomez (ankle) returns to the lineup, which could make him a hot commodity on the waiver wire for fantasy owners looking for added power production. Calhoun torched the Pacific Coast League for 31 home runs, six triples and 27 doubles in 534 plate appearances prior to his callup.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: First start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun will get his first big-league start Tuesday against the Mariners, starting in left field and batting seventh.

Calhoun joined the Rangers prior to Tuesday's game, and the team will waste no time getting the highly regarded prospect into action. The 22-year-old posted a respectable .300/.355/.572 slash line at Triple-A this season, and he boasts some impressive power for his size -- as evidenced by his 31 homers in 128 games in the Pacific Coast League. With Carlos Gomez sidelined with a high ankle sprain, Calhoun should see a fair share of at-bats until he's back in action.

Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Officially promoted Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers officially selected Calhoun's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Though general manager Jon Daniels indicated earlier in September that Calhoun wouldn't be included among the Rangers' callups during the final month of the season due to the lack of available at-bats, the organization reversed its stance after Carlos Gomez suffered a high-ankle sprain in Saturday's game against the Yankees that will keep the outfielder sidelined for an indefinite period of time. Rather than leaning on lower-upside bench bats like Ryan Rua, Will Middlebrooks and Drew Robinson to fill the void in the lineup, the Rangers will likely deploy Calhoun in a near-everyday role in the outfield or at second base, where he could occasionally spell Rougned Odor, who has been nursing a mild ankle sprain of late. The Rangers' top prize in the July 31 deal that sent Yu Darvish to the Dodgers, Calhoun was among the most feared hitters in the Pacific Coast League this season, amassing 31 home runs and 93 RBI while slashing .300/.355/.572 across 534 plate appearances. The 22-year-old boasts uncommon power for a player listed at just 5-foot-8, making him worthy of an immediate pickup in AL-only formats, and likely in most deeper mixed leagues, too, given the likelihood that he'll see regular at-bats until Gomez returns to action.
