Calhoun signed a two-year deal with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun will make $16 million guaranteed and could make more than that if the Diamondbacks pick up a team option for the 2022 season. The 32-year-old rebounded from a rough 2018 campaign to hit a career-high 33 homers last season. His .232/.325/.467 slash line was good for a respectable 108 wRC+, but he'll have to keep his power numbers up if he's to remain a good fantasy option in 2020, as his batting average has remained low for three straight seasons. He lines up as Arizona's primary option in right field and should see quite a lot of playing time unless his numbers collapse again.

Calhoun will become a free agent after the Angels declined his option Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun bounced back from a poor 2018 campaign to hit .232/.325/.467 with a career-high 33 homers, though that evidently wasn't enough for the Angels to keep him around for $14 million. He'll receive a $1 million buyout as he looks for a new home heading into his age-32 season.

Calhoun went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Sunday in the Angels' 8-5 loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun wrapped up the 2019 campaign with just three hits in 24 at-bats over his final seven contests, but his .792 OPS still represented a career-best mark for any season in which he played at least 100 games. Though Calhoun was one of the team's more productive hitters, the Angels are expected to decline the 31-year-old's $14 million team option for 2020 later this fall, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. If that's the case, Calhoun could still re-sign with the Angels later in the offseason at a lower salary or look for work elsewhere as a strong-side platoon option in the outfield.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun provided a pair of insurance runs with a blast to right center field in the ninth inning. The 31-year-old suffered through a 1-for-24 stretch to begin September but has turned things around over the last 10 games, going 12-for-37 with five home runs and seven runs batted in. Overall, Calhoun is slashing .237/.328/.481 with 33 long balls and 74 RBI in 604 plate appearances this season.

Calhoun went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to Cleveland on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun brought the Angels to within a run with a 411-foot shot to center field in the eighth inning, but it proved to be the final tally of the game for either team. The round tripper was Calhoun's first since Aug. 23 and was only his third hit in 30 at-bats in September. The 31-year-old is slashing .231/.325/.467 with 29 homers and 68 RBI in 570 plate appearances this season.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun put the Angels on the board in the seventh inning, when he scored two runs on a bases-loaded double. With two more RBI, Calhoun is now up to 66 on the season, giving him an outside shot at reaching the career-high 83 he accrued in 2015.

Calhoun is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun went 0-for-4 in Saturday's 5-2 loss, taking some of the shine off his four-hit performance in Friday's series opener. He'll bow out of the lineup Sunday with a lefty (Framber Valdez) on the bump for Houston, effectively giving Calhoun two days off due to the Angels' open date Monday. Brian Goodwin will take Calhoun's spot in the outfield.
