Kole Calhoun homered and finished 3-for-3 in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Calhoun's second consecutive three-hit day raised his average over .300 for the first time this season, as he's now batting .301 with an .882 OPS. His homer was his ninth home run of the year, and he also scored on an Albert Pujols single in the third inning.

Kole Calhoun finished 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored, and the Angels completed the doubleheader sweep with a 7-5 win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Calhoun has been on a tear in recent days, as Tuesday's nightcap was his fourth multi-hit game in his last six contests. The homer, his eighth of the year, was also his third in the last nine games. The dual threat has been rather quiet on the basepaths this season, perhaps due to the ankle injury that forced him to miss over a month of games, but he's batting a helpful .284/.345/.494 at the top of a potent Angels lineup and should continue to fill the stat sheet going forward.

Kole Calhoun had a leadoff homer and a two-run double Friday against the White Sox.

Calhoun hit at the bottom of the order in his return from the disabled list, but he's getting another look in the leadoff spot now and the nice game tonight could help keep him there. He's certainly a more interesting option in mixed leagues while hitting ahead of Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.

Angels activated outfielder Kole Calhoun from the 15-day disabled list.

Calhoun is starting in right field and batting sixth tonight. He was leading off before injuring his ankle, and he'd be a better option in shallow mixed leagues if he can regain that spot. If he hits in the bottom half of the lineup, he'll score far fewer runs and won't make up for it with a bunch of RBI chances, not with Raul Ibanez likely hitting ahead of him.
