Angels OF Kole Calhoun drives in run, scores game winner


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Kole Calhoun had a big day for the Angels on Sunday, driving in what appeared to be the game-winning run earlier in the contest and then eventually scoring the winning run in extra innings. 

Calhoun's eighth-inning single to shallow right gave Los Angeles a 2-1 advantage over the Mariners, but when the game went to extra innings, Calhoun found himself on the basepaths after a single, moving up to third after an intentional walk and a double play. He then scored when Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen uncorked a wild pitch. 

Calhoun has slumped in June, hitting .221 and the run he scored was only the seventh of the month. 


Angels RF Kole Calhoun blasts two-run home run on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun gave his team an early lead on Saturday, as he launched a two-run home run in the very first inning. The home run was Calhoun's seventh of the season, and his first in 13 games. The Angels would go on to beat the Mariners 4-2.

"That's a big hit at the time, obviously," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "I think it did let [Angels starter Garrett Richards] not worry about one pitch or one mistake that could hurt him early. Not many leads we've had early, so it was good to get out in front, and Garrett just pounded the zone with good stuff and made them work."

It was the only hit of the day for Calhoun, who is batting an even .200 over his last 10 games.


Kole Calhoun homers, drives in three for Angels


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Angels' Kole Calhoun bumped to sixth spot in lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun has been moved down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order in Sunday's matchup with the Tigers.

The lefty-swinging outfielder has typically batted cleanup over the last few weeks, but he'll slide down a few spots against Tigers lefty David Price. Despite the move, Calhoun has hit a little better against lefties than righties this season.

The Angels are slight favorites (-107) at home on Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.


Angels RF Kole Calhoun smashes fifth home run of the season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun went 1 for 4 at the plate in Los Angeles' 8-6 win over the Tigers on Saturday. Calhoun did his damage in the first inning when he ripped a solo home run off of Shane Greene, his fifth of the season. 

Calhoun is now hitting .281 with 24 RBI on the year.


Angels RF Kole Calhoun cranks fourth home run of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun went 1 for 3 at the plate in Los Angeles' 3-2 win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Calhoun did his damage in the fourth inning when he blasted a solo home run over the left field wall off of Aaron Sanchez, his fourth of the season. Calhoun, who also scored an additional run, is now hitting .299 with 19 RBI in 137 at-bats this season.


Scioscia: Kole Calhoun now full-time cleanup hitter for Angels


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) It's no longer an experiment. Kole Calhoun is now the permanent cleanup hitter for the Angels.

That was the pronouncement of Mike Scioscia, per the Orange County Register. Calhoun is back in that spot for the Monday game in Toronto after batting cleanup in five consecutive games in late April and early May.

Calhoun has certainly not hit for the power one might expect from a cleanup hitter. He has just three home runs - none since April 23. But he has been productive. He has 18 RBI in 129 at-bats and a strong slash line of .302/.359/.434.


Angels bat Erick Aybar leadoff, Kole Calhoun cleanup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Angels have flipped players in two prominent lineup spots for Monday's matchup with the Blue Jays, as shortstop Erick Aybar will lead off while right fielder Kole Calhoun bats cleanup.

Aybar will lead off for the ninth time this season. He's spent most of the year batting fifth or lower, but he was the team's cleanup hitter on Saturday for the first time this season and reprised the role Sunday.

"What Erick doesn't bring in patience, working counts, he brings in just athleticism and still gets on base at a rate which hopefully will set the table for Mike (Trout) and Albert (Pujols) moving forward," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "And also, we have Johnny Giavotella pushed back to ninth, to try to connect him with Mike. Hopefully there will be some table-setting there that's happening, and we'll get to the big guys in our lineup. "

Calhoun has made 28 starts in the leadoff spot, but he did bat cleanup five times in a row starting on April 30, with Aybar serving as the leadoff man in all five games. The team went 1-4 during that stretch, losing four straight games before going back to Calhoun at the leadoff spot.

"As much as we really like Kole in the leadoff spot, and in front of Mike, I think what we're presented with right now just makes the most sense to go with it this way," Scioscia said. "Guys have had a lot of time to get into their game and aren't there yet, so we need to start to take a little pressure off our pitching staff."

The Angels are road favorites (-123) in Toronto on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.


Angels manager Mike Scioscia may move up Erick Aybar to leadoff


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/15/2015) Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he's thinking about moving up shortstop Erick Aybar in the lineup to leadoff while dropping down right fielder Kole Calhoun towards the middle, reports the Orange County Register.

Aybar, who's primarily hit fifth or sixth this season, has been on a recent tear, batting .417 (15 for 36) over his last 10 games.

Calhoun has hit leadoff in 25 of the Angels' 34 games this season, hitting .314 with three homers and 18 RBI.

Angels' Kole Calhoun crushing lefties early in 2015


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun has hit .379/.455/.552 with one home run and seven RBI in 29 at-bats against left-handed pitching this season.

Calhoun's .476 BABIP has helped key his success against southpaws, which has been a large driver of his .294/.350/.431 line. It's a reversal of his production from last season, when he was stronger against righties and delivered a .710 OPS against lefties.

Calhoun has cooled in May after producing a .860 OPS in April, hitting just .250/.317/.306 in 36 at-bats this month. He has a pair of home games against the Rockies on tap before a three-game weekend series against the Orioles.


Angels RF Kole Calhoun returns to leadoff spot Tuesday vs. M's


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) After spending the last four games in the cleanup spot, Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun will return to the leadoff position in Mike Scisoscia's lineup on Tuesday against the Mariners. Calhoun didn't exactly impress hitting fourth, as he went 4 for 17 with zero extra base hits in those five games.

Contrastly, Calhoun is batting .299 when hitting from the top of the order, and he will assume that spot on Tuesday. David Freese is batting cleanup on Tuesday.  


Angels' Calhoun may remain in cleanup role even with Pujols' return


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Despite Albert Pujols' return to the lineup on Saturday, Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun remains in the cleanup spot, indicating this could be a permanent move, reports the Orange County Register.

Calhoun had been batting leadoff this season but shifted to fourth when Pujols sat Thursday and Friday to rest his hamstring.

"When we get things rolling with a lineup going one to nine and the bottom of the order getting on base like they did last year, Kole is a great fit as a leadoff hitter," Scioscia said. "But if you want to talk specifically about the lineup today, you want to try to get Kole hitting, taking advantage of whatever Mike or Albert can set up for him."

Albert Pujols (hamstring) returns to Angels' lineup on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) First baseman Albert Pujols (hamstring) will return to the Angels' lineup Saturday in San Fransico after missing two games with a hamstring issue.

Pujols exited Wednesday's game with the injury and sat out Thursday's and Friday's contest.

The move will shift center fielder Mike Trout back to the second spot in the lineup while Kole Calhoun stays in the cleanup role.

During Pujols' two-game absence, second baseman Johnny Giavotella moved from ninth to leadoff but will bat seventh on Saturday for the first time this season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
