2018

2017

Calhoun showed impressive power from the left side of the plate in 2016. Despite standing at just 5-foot-8, the 21-year-old clubbed 27 home runs and tallied 88 RBI in 132 games at Double-A Tulsa. The power surge did come at a cost, though; Calhoun hit a career-low .254. Still, Calhoun may have been unlucky, as he sported a low BABIP (.242). Indeed, Calhoun is not a high-strikeout player, as the second baseman fanned just 65 times in those 132 contests. It remains to be seen where Calhoun will end up playing in the field, as his defense is suspect. Still, Calhoun's power potential combined with the ability to make contact may force the Dodgers to find a place for him to play. Calhoun should start 2017 at Triple-A, with the chance to see the majors before the year is through.

2016

Of the players selected outside of the first 100 picks in last year’s draft, Calhoun is the most intriguing. The 5-foot-9 second basemen slipped, because that is what happens to diminutive players who have already been pigeonholed at the keystone. However, Andrew Friedman clearly had his eyes on Calhoun, as he had previously drafted him in the 17th round in 2013 with the Rays, but was unable to sign him. Calhoun immediately rewarded Friedman’s persistence, slashing .316/.390/.519 with 11 home runs in 73 games across three levels. His rapid ascension to High-A after getting drafted almost exactly mirrors that of the No. 2 overall pick, Alex Bregman, only Calhoun hit for more power and is seven months younger than Bregman. After playing 20 games at High-A to close out the year, he could head back there at the start of 2016, and should remain on a fast track to the majors if he continues to hit.
