Calhoun was summoned by the Angels on May 21, 2012, to replace Vernon Wells, who was placed on the injured list.

The next day, he made his major league debut, and the next day, he had his first major league hit, a double off Jarrod Parker.

Calhoun was the eighth player selected in the 2010 MLB Draft to make his MLB debut. After eight games with the Angels, he was sent back down on June 12.

He was named to the All-Star squad of the Pacific Coast League. Before getting called up for good in August, he had another brief stay with the Angels.

His final batting average with the Bees was.298 with 14 home runs, 73 RBI, and a .877 OPS in 105 games.

Calhoun was battling with J. B. Shuck for the fifth outfielder place in 2013, but Shuck earned the role after a terrible spring training, in which he hit .174 with 10 RBI and 16 strikeouts in 23 games, and Calhoun began the season with Salt Lake.

July 28, Calhoun was recalled to replace Albert Pujols, who was injured.  With Salt Lake, Calhoun was hitting.354 with 12 home runs and 49 RBI.

Calhoun’s first major league home run came on August 2nd, a two-run go-ahead blast off of Steve Delabar in the bottom of the eighth inning, as part of a 4-hit night for Calhoun.

Because Pujols was injured, Josh Hamilton was given the majority of the time at the designated hitter, leaving the right field open.
