Latest Update Kole Calhoun is not in the Angels starting lineup on Saturday Sat Aug, 23, 05:54 PM
Has both good power and speed. Also draws a fair number of walks due to good plate discipline and patience. Can play either outfield corner, plus first base if need be.
Flaws: : Needs to improve his stolen-base percentage and his overall outfield defense in order to stick in the bigs. Must also prove he can play every day at the big-league level.
Calhoun hasn't sat since August 7th, so this is likely just a routine breather. The Angel's outfielder continues to hit well in the second half of the season and provides a great combination of power and average for fantasy owners. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Calhoun is now hitting .317 with two home runs, eight RBI and six runs scored in the month of August, as he continues to be successful sitting atop the Angels lineup. Although he doesn't offer much speed (4 SB), Calhoun has the power (13 HR) and solid plate discipline (.344 OBP) that make him a goo leadoff hitter. Until he proves us otherwise, he needs to remain in starting lineups while batting ahead of Mike Trout. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Calhoun is now slashing .294/.348/.489 with 13 home runs, 37 RBI, 60 runs scored and four stolen bases through 327 a-bats, as he continues to take full advantage of hitting ahead of Mike Trout. Although his RBI production is going to be limited while batting leadoff, Calhoun remain a solid fantasy option while maintaining a solid batting average and scoring runs at a high rate.

How about four-straight multi-hit games? Not bad, so long as he can continue to produce elsewhere as well. Before this breakout game, he had just two runs scored with no home runs or RBI over his previous seven games. In fact, he hadn't provided his owners with a home run in 20 games or an RBI in 11 games. He's got the ability to go on a streak and the Angels can help him advance you in the runs scored category, so just make sure you're using him properly.Analyst: Howard Bender
