2022 Player Outlook

Calhoun served time on the injured list in April, and then missed a significant amount of time in the summer for a fracture of his ulna bone, limiting him to just 75 games played in 2021. When he was on the field, he hit .250 with a .691 OPS, six home runs, 25 RBI and 26 runs scored. He went 0-for-2 on the base paths. A 3.5 percent barrel rate isn't ideal, and just 55 of his 260 at-bats last year came against southpaws, so if the team doesn't trust him for regular time against southpaws, he could find himself in a rather strict platoon. Texas should at least give him the opportunity against lefties this season on occasion, but there's enough pop in his bat to post a home run total in the mid-to-upper teens. Yes, he'll need to improve upon last year's 3.5 percent barrel rate, but the average exit velocity was up, and the launch angle has been in the double-digit for four straight seasons. He makes contact and can punish fastballs, so there's optimism in 2022 for 16-18 home runs and a .260 batting average atop the Texas order, which stands to be better in 2022.
