Rangers' Willie Calhoun: Playing second base in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calhoun started at second base for Triple-A Nashville on Friday and will get a couple of starts per week there going forward, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Calhoun was a second baseman in the Dodgers organization until he was moved to the outfield. Part of the reason for the shift to outfield was the lack of athleticism he showed while playing at 220 pounds. The Rangers deployed him as outfield only since acquiring Calhoun, but they now feel he's in better shape and can handle infield duty. The move could pave the way for Calhoun to reach the major-league roster in a utility role, particularly if second baseman Rougned Odor (.157/.259/.255) continues to struggle at the plate.

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.
