Willie Calhoun - 2B TEX


Recommended Posts

3-4 with a double tonight, up to .290AVG.  Already has 24 doubles (he had 27 all of last year in 150+ more ABs for comparison) so although his home run numbers are down considerably, he is at least getting extra base hits.  Think he's ready to get up to the show to do some damage.

Signs of life from big Willie, 3-4, 2B and HR, hitting .342 with 2BB/3Ks over the last 10 games.  Hopefully a call-up is near.

Traded to the Rangers. Yeaaaaa boy!

I think it is a bad sign for his attitude and work ethic if he gets discouraged by those things rather than seeing it as a motivation. Other guys have been pissed too by service time manipulations lik

The thing is though (and this has been the rub with him all along), where do you play him? You've got Choo at DH, Mazara/DeShields/Gallo in the OF, Profar as the utility guy and even Odor is having a resurgence at 2B (not that they'd consider playing him there anyway).  It just doesn't seem like he has a path to everyday AB's - at least this year.

Yeah most people thought Profar would win those swing states.

Calhoun is batting .266 on the year with 5 homers but seems to be warming up at the plate in his last four games. He may be back to playing 2B as a potential move to make him a utility player.

rotorwire blurb

"Calhoun was a second baseman in the Dodgers organization until he was moved to the outfield. Part of the reason for the shift to outfield was the lack of athleticism he showed while playing at 220 pounds. The Rangers deployed him as outfield only since acquiring Calhoun, but they now feel he's in better shape and can handle infield duty. The move could pave the way for Calhoun to reach the major-league roster in a utility role, particularly if second baseman Rougned Odor (.157/.259/.255) continues to struggle at the plate."
