RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The stars seemed aligned for a big fantasy season from Calhoun in 2015. He was going to hit at the top third of a projected potent lineup and some were projecting 100 runs and a top-50 performance by seasonís end. Oops. Calhoun was in the lineup every day, but the extra exposure to lefties dragged his numbers down. He hit .220/.293/.370 with a 26 percent K-rate against lefties versus .272/.316/.447 with a 23 percent K-rate against righties. Eighteen of his 26 homers came against righties and despite the extra 150 plate appearances, he scored 12 fewer runs than the season before. Calhoun had plenty of lineup protection behind him in Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, but the leadoff spot was a problem all year long for the Angels. Yunel Escobar (career .350 OBP) figures to occupy that spot to start 2016, so that should represent a tangible upgrade. Calhounís defense keeps him in the lineup every day, but that will also hurt his batting average.

2015

Expectations were high for Calhoun's first full season as an everyday player, as many saw the potential for a multi-category contributor after he was given an opportunity to succeed in the leadoff spot. An ankle injury suffered in mid-April while he was running down the first-base line sidelined Calhoun for more than a month, but he still settled in atop the Angels' lineup as the season unfolded. Heralded in 2013 for his ability to capably handle lefties, Calhoun hit .252/.322/.388 against them last season, prompting a platoon with Collin Cowgill in right field for part of the season. Limited to 127 games, Calhoun still hit 17 home runs and showed power similar to his rookie campaign, but he only attempted eight steals last season, perhaps due to the aforementioned ankle injury. Even if he loses time against left-handed pitching, Calhoun should have a prominent place in a very strong Angels lineup on the larger side of a platoon in right field.

2014

After slugging a Ruthian-like .617 in 59 games at Triple-A Salt Lake in 2013, Calhoun was promoted to the big club late in July, when it was determined that Albert Pujols would likely spend the rest of the season on the disabled list. Calhoun took full advantage of the opportunity, as he slugged .482 and got on base at a .343 clip in 99 PA in August. With the Angels moving Peter Bourjos to the Cardinals in November, Calhoun is a serious contender for a regular spot in the outfield, likely in right field. While he does not offer a standout tool, Calhoun does everything reasonably well and could benefit from the talent in the lineup around him, especially if Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton can rebound.

2013

Calhoun spent most of the 2012 season with Triple-A Salt Lake City of the Pacific Coast League, batting .298/.369/.507 with 14 home runs and 12 steals in 463 plate appearances. As always, you'll want to take offensive numbers from the PCL with a grain of salt, although that doesn't change the fact that Calhoun's bat looks like the real deal. He could open the year as the Angels' fourth or fifth outfielder, but it will probably make more sense for the organization to let him continue his development with regular playing time at the Triple-A level.
