Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim manager Mike Scioscia said he won't change OF Kole Calhoun's approach this spring. Calhoun has started every game this spring in the leadoff position. "He's really become a tough out at the plate, I think he runs well enough to run around the bases, and he's hit left-handed pitchers. Hopefully, he's going to be the guy that can help set the table for the middle of the order," Scioscia said.
