Angels | Halos don't have extension talks planned

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 18:37:53 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim do not have any contract extension talks scheduled with OF Kole Calhoun and SP Garrett Richards. "I would be lying to tell you that the thought hasn't crossed my mind," general manager Billy Eppler said. "But we're not at that point. It's just not something I want to talk about while they're playing; while they're trying to perform."

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, the 28-year-old Calhoun was batting .264 with two home runs and nine RBI, while the 27-year-old Richards was 1-3 with a 2.35 ERA through his first five starts, with 30 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings. Calhoun should be viewed as an OF3 in mixed seasonal leagues, while Richards is a low-end SP2 or high-end SP3.

Angels | Another multi-hit gem for Kole Calhoun

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:58:57 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun churned out his third multi-hit game of the season Wednesday, April 13, against the Oakland Athletics. He finished the day 3-for-5 with a run scored, two RBI and a double.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun has quietly emerged as one of the Angels' most valuable hitters, and he's now produced at least one hit in all but one of his games played thus far. If the 28-year-old can keep it up, he'll surpass last year's breakout campaign, which would certainly make him very useful in all fantasy formats.

Angels | Yunel Escobar to lead off

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 09:34:23 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 3B Yunel Escobar is pretty much squared away as the leadoff hitter, according to manager Mike Scioscia. OF Kole Calhoun will hit second or fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun will benefit from hitting in either spot and is a high-end OF3. Escobar is a fringe MI grab in mixed leagues.

Angels | Kole Calhoun avoids arbitration

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 08:58:36 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun avoided arbitration Wednesday, Jan. 27, by agreeing to a one-year, $3.4 million deal, according to a person with knowledge of the deal. Calhoun had asked for $3.9 million when both sides exchanged proposed salaries Jan. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun's batting average has dropped each of the last two years, and he continues to sacrifice frequent contact for more power. He slugged a career-high 26 home runs and drove in 83 runs for the Halos last season. Calhoun is also a nice source of runs hitting at the top of the order, but his bad numbers against lefties leaves him vulnerable.

Angels | Johnny Giavotella out again

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:40:28 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 2B Johnny Giavotella (illness) is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with OF Kole Calhoun hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a high price to use when he's moving from the middle of the order to leadoff. He has a decent matchup against Marco Estrada and has hit three homers in the last seven days so he's worth the FantasyScore play.

Fantasy Tip: Calhoun ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has 48 hits in 187 plate appearances against righties this season, with 13 of those hits being of the extra-base variety. Hitting directly ahead of Mike Trout, Calhoun will be an excellent FantasyScore choice.
