Calhoun, 32, finished the 2019 season with a .232/.325/.467 in 152 games for the Los Angeles Angels. CBS Sports ranked Calhoun list. Here’s what we wrote about the left-hitting outfielder:
Calhoun is coming off a 33-homer effort, but past performance is only a piece of the evaluative process. He struck out more for a third consecutive season, due in part to a career-worst contact rate — he whiffed on more than 32 percent of his swings. He did walk and bop more as well, meaning he’s shifting toward the so-called old-player skills. Defensively, Calhoun is more average than not — a description that applies to his entire game at this stage in his career. There’s some attrition risk here due to the swing-and-miss, but he’s probably good for at least one more two-win season as the heavy side of a platoon.
After spending his entire Major League career with the Angels — the club that drafted him in the eighth round in the 2010 MLB Draft — Calhoun declined to exercise his 2020 contract option.
