Angels | Kole Calhoun headed to DL

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 05:13:11 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun (ankle) is headed to the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury. The team could look to acquire OF Sam Fuld from the Oakland Athletics to replace him.

FANTASY TIP: It sounds as if he suffered a sprained ankle, which could keep him out two or three weeks. If it's of the high-ankle variety, he could be out longer. If he is dropped in your league, and you have the space, pick him up. OF Collin Cowgill and OF/DH Raul Ibanez could be options to fill in during his absence. Neither are worth fantasy consideration in mixed leagues. OF Brennan Boesch could also be an option, but he's not exactly tearing it up at Triple-A Salt Lake.
