Calhoun hit a solo home run in a 2-for-4 game Tuesday against the Cubs

EDGE Analysis

With the blast, Calhoun broke a 35-game homerless stretch that spanned the entire month of July. He at least managed a sharp 19:21 BB:K and a .327 OBP over that stretch, but with no power to speak of, he saw his OPS drop from .824 to .762. Calhoun hit 26 home runs last season in 159 games. With 11 homers in 110 games this year, he has little chance of reaching that mark again.

Calhoun is not in the lineup for Saturday's tilt with Boston, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun will be replaced in the lineup by Shane Robinson who's starting in right and batting ninth. Calhoun's production has dipped slightly since the start of the second half as he's gone just 10-for-47 (.213) in his last 14 games. He does have eight runs and seven RBI during that span, however.

Calhoun is out of the lineup Monday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun will get just his second day off of the regular season, as he has made 81 starts in 82 games for the Angels so far this year. With Monday being the second of back-to-back day games for the Halos, the timing was appropriate for a maintenance day. Shane Robinson will draw the start in right field in his stead.

Calhoun went 3-for-5 with a double, a stolen base and an RBI in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Owners have come to expect this kind of consistent production from Calhoun, but the stolen base is a nice surprise, as it is just the second time he has swiped a bag this season. It wasn't too long ago that Calhoun was projected to take 12-15 bases in a season, and while that may be a stretch in 2016, he has enough power and plate discipline that anything in the 8-10 range would likely be considered a fantastic benefit. He is now slashing .292/.368/.457 with nine homers in 267 at-bats.

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the A's on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun's drive in the third inning was the only run the Angels would get off starter Kendall Graveman. Owners have likely given up on the idea that Calhoun will turn into a stolen base threat, but he has held his batting average near the .300 mark for most of the season, which will make him a valuable asset as long as he can keep the power coming.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, two RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old posted his fourth multi-hit effort in his last six games, and blasted his third homer in the last five contests in the process. Calhoun has ramped up his impactful contact over the last three weeks, during which four of his six round-trippers on the season have transpired. A stellar May in which he slashed .324/.407/.438-- along with his 4-for-11 start to June-- has Calhoun's season line up to .302/.384/.455.

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a home run, a triple, three walks, two runs and a strikeout Sunday against Houston.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun remains one of the most consistent hitters in the Angels lineup, and he did a nice job filling out the stat sheet in this game. The 28-year-old outfielder has hit safely in eight of the past 10 games, and he's slashed .286/.362/.452 with four extra-base hits over that span.

Calhoun is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is Calhoun's first day off this season as the 28-year-old has been one of the most consistent performers on the team. Although his home run total is down through 44 games, his .290/.368/.407 line and 21 RBI are impressive. Calhoun's strikeout rate is down approximately five percent and his walk rate is up approximately three percent, showing his improved control at the plate. This could be a career year if the Arizona native continues his current pace.
