Kole Calhoun is an American professional baseball right fielder for the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played in MLB for the Los Angeles Angels and Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Angels selected Calhoun off the waiver wire to take Vernon Wells’ spot on the injured list.
Following his debut the following day, he recorded his first major-league hit the following day, a double off of Jarrod Parker.
His debut in the major leagues was the eighth player selected in the 2010 MLB draft. After only eight games with the Angels, he was sent to Triple-A on June 12.
As a result, the Pacific Coast League selected him to its All-Star squad. He returned to the Angels for a second stint before being called up permanently in August.
His final batting average with the Bees was.298 with 14 home runs, 73 RBI, and an on-base percentage of.877. He played in 105 games.
In August and September, he was utilized solely as a substitute. Just 23 at-bats in 21 games with the Angels yielded a.174 batting average and one run scored.
In J. B. Shuck and Calhoun vying for the fifth outfielder job, Calhoun’s dismal spring training led to Shuck winning the position and Calhoun starting the season with Salt Lake. Injured Albert Pujols was replaced by Calhoun on July 28.
