Angels' Scioscia: Kole Calhoun's 'intensity' a key strength
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/2/15) Angels manager Mike Scioscia praised the intensity and enthusiasm of outfielder Kole Calhoun Monday as part of what makes him such a valuable part of the team's lineup, MLB.com reports.
"I think part of what makes Kole a good player is his intensity," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "You need that focus, that intensity to know this is real and it's how you compete. With Kole, it's in him and it bubbles out. He pumps his teammates up and he does a great job setting the tone for us."
"It's how I was raised," Calhoun said. "I'm a pretty passionate person in most everything that I do. I think at this level, you've got to be. You've got to compete on every pitch because that's your livelihood. Everyone's fighting for the same thing and you want to come out on top."
Calhoun excelled as the team's leadoff batter in 2014, hitting .281/.336/.471 with 17 home runs and 58 RBI in 448 at-bats while slotted first.

|(9/7/14) Outfielder Kole Calhoun was out of the Angels' starting lineup for Sunday's series finale at the Twins. Calhoun, a left-handed batter, was rested in favor of Collin Cowgill, as the Angels will oppose Twins lefty Logan Darnell with Josh Hamilton as the only left-handed hitter in the lineup.
Calhoun had made starts in each of the last three games in which the Angels faced a left-handed starting pitcher.
Kole Calhoun reaches four times in win
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/19/14) Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun stayed hot Monday, in a 4-2 win over the Red Sox.
Calhoun did his job at the top of the lineup, reaching base in all four of his trips to the plate. He went 2 for 2 with a double and added a pair of walks, while scoring twice in the win.
Kalhoun is hitting .295 for the season, but has been hot all August long, hitting .339/.397/.516 since the start of the month.
|2014 summary: After impressing in a late-season trial in 2013, Kole Calhoun got a chance to play every day in 2014, and the numbers more or less translated. In a little more than twice as many games, he hit a little more than twice as many home runs, with only modest regression in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. The end result was more Head-to-Head points per game than Matt Kemp, Alex Gordon and Jason Heyward.|
Playing time status: Calhoun did miss a month early in the year with a sprained ankle, but one injury in his first full major-league season isn't much of a history. Batting leadoff for the Angels, one of the league's best offensive teams, makes him an excellent source of runs. But since he's not the most natural fit there, his lineup spot could always change.
2015 outlook: Because he's already 27, Calhoun probably won't add to the 20-homer power he showed in 2014, which holds back his value a bit in Rotisserie leagues. His minor-league track record suggests he does have some room to improve peripherally, particularly in terms of plate discipline, but even if he's the exact same player in 2015 that he was in 2014, he's a quality outfielder in both formats. Target him in the middle rounds.
