Angels | Kole Calhoun with day off

Mon, 23 May 2016 13:00:17 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. OF Shane Robinson draws into left field and is batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: It's Calhoun's first day off of the season. Even though Holland has been struggling mightily, Robinson should be avoided everywhere. He has a .237 career average with only five home runs in seven seasons in the big leagues.

Angels | Kole Calhoun stuffs the stat line

Sun, 15 May 2016 05:51:52 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun went 3-for-4 with three runs, a home run and two RBI during the Angels' 9-7 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun is off to a respectable start with 18 runs, three home runs, 19 RBI, a stolen base and a .305/.376/.435 slash line. There is room for improve in the slugging department, but fantasy owners have to be pleased with the batting average. Calhoun remains a mid-tier starter in all fantasy formats.

Angels | Yunel Escobar sitting out Friday

Fri, 13 May 2016 17:01:16 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar (thumb) is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. 3B Jefry Marte is starting at the hot corner and is batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns. OF Kole Calhoun moves up to the leadoff spot, with OF Mike Trout hitting second and 1B Albert Pujols hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: The Angels expect Escobar to be fine and possibly return to the lineup as early as tomorrow. That makes Marte one to avoid in all formats tonight and moving forward. Escobar has been a productive on-base man for the Angels at the top of the order but doesn't contribute much outside of average for fantasy owners.

Angels | Kole Calhoun in two-hole again

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:11:41 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun is hitting second for the second straight game against St. Louis Cardinals SP Mike Leake Tuesday, May 10. OF Daniel Nava moves down to the fifth spot in the order.

Fantasy Tip: It's a more familiar lineup position for Calhoun, and he should benefit from hitting ahead of Mike Trout. Calhoun's .295 average is nice, but his owners are likely concerned with just two home runs and 12 RBI. If he sticks in this spot, his numbers could improve in the power department. Continue running him out there in traditional leagues, and he's not a bad midrange outfielder in daily games.

Angels | Halos don't have extension talks planned

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 18:37:53 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim do not have any contract extension talks scheduled with OF Kole Calhoun and SP Garrett Richards. "I would be lying to tell you that the thought hasn't crossed my mind," general manager Billy Eppler said. "But we're not at that point. It's just not something I want to talk about while they're playing; while they're trying to perform."

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, the 28-year-old Calhoun was batting .264 with two home runs and nine RBI, while the 27-year-old Richards was 1-3 with a 2.35 ERA through his first five starts, with 30 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings. Calhoun should be viewed as an OF3 in mixed seasonal leagues, while Richards is a low-end SP2 or high-end SP3.

Angels | Another multi-hit gem for Kole Calhoun

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:58:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun churned out his third multi-hit game of the season Wednesday, April 13, against the Oakland Athletics. He finished the day 3-for-5 with a run scored, two RBI and a double.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun has quietly emerged as one of the Angels' most valuable hitters, and he's now produced at least one hit in all but one of his games played thus far. If the 28-year-old can keep it up, he'll surpass last year's breakout campaign, which would certainly make him very useful in all fantasy formats.

Angels | Yunel Escobar to lead off

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 09:34:23 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar is pretty much squared away as the leadoff hitter, according to manager Mike Scioscia. OF Kole Calhoun will hit second or fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun will benefit from hitting in either spot and is a high-end OF3. Escobar is a fringe MI grab in mixed leagues.

Angels | Kole Calhoun avoids arbitration

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 08:58:36 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun avoided arbitration Wednesday, Jan. 27, by agreeing to a one-year, $3.4 million deal, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. Calhoun had asked for $3.9 million when both sides exchanged proposed salaries Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun's batting average has dropped each of the last two years, and he continues to sacrifice frequent contact for more power. He slugged a career-high 26 home runs and drove in 83 runs for the Halos last season. Calhoun is also a nice source of runs hitting at the top of the order, but his bad numbers against lefties leaves him vulnerable.

Angels | Kole Calhoun files for arbitration

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 08:04:13 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun hit .256 with a career-high 26 home runs and 83 RBIs in 159 games last season. He should be selected in the early rounds of AL-only leagues and the middle rounds of mixed leagues.
