Calhoun is not in the lineup Wednesday against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun has started all but one game for the Angels in September, slashing just .107/.261/.214 with two homers and six RBI over that 15-game stretch. He'll sit Wednesday in favor of Jabari Blash, who is starting in right field and hitting seventh.

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 victory over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun's seventh-inning homer ended an 0-for-22 slump at the plate. The 30-year-old's seemingly endless second-half hot streak has finally come to a halt. Calhoun can still provide fantasy value even if he settles somewhere between his polar-opposite halves while batting leadoff for the Halos.

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a walk in Sunday's 1-0 win over Chicago.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun drove in a run during the seventh inning on a single to right field, plating the game's first and only run. He's off to a slow start to September, hitting .174 with a home run over seven games, and he owns an uninspiring .223/.295/.394 slash line through 119 contests this season.

Calhoun is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun sits after starting 40 straight games. He hit a solid .284/.374/.535 with nine homers over that stretch. Michael Hermosillo will get the start in right field in his absence.

Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a double, stolen base and a run Monday in the Angels' 10-7 triumph over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps no everyday player has provided as extreme first- and second-half splits this season as Calhoun, who had likely hit the waiver wire in most fantasy formats after rolling into the All-Star break with a .187 average and only 15 extra-base hits through 75 contests. Calhoun's handy glovework in the outfield -- along with a lack of appealing alternatives -- prompted the Angels to give him a long leash in his full-time role, and he has rewarded the team's patience with a huge post-break performance. Through 34 second-half games, Calhoun has slashed .306/.382/.567 with eight home runs, 28 runs and 25 RBI, allowing him to seize control of the leadoff role. That surge has made Calhoun a must-own player in every league, at least until he experiences another prolonged slump.

Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a home run and a pair of runs scored in Thursday's 8-6 loss to Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun recorded his second three-hit contest over the last four games, contributing his 17th long ball in the process. The 30-year-old continues his second-half surge, slashing .321/.409/.607 with four homers in 56 August at-bats.

Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 4-3 win over the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun -- who normally is moved down in the order against southpaws -- was allowed to lead off against left-handed starter Brett Anderson, and he rewarded manager Mike Scioscia's decision with his 16th homer of the season, and second in as many games. Don't let the 30-year-old's mediocre season line fool you, as he has been one of the Angels' hottest bats since returning from the disabled list June 18, posting a .291/.358/.646 slash line with 15 long balls over that 44-game span.

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an additional run scored in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun opened the game with a bang, taking Blaine Hardy deep on just the second pitch he saw to give the Angels an early lead that they wouldn't relinquish. The 30-year-old has picked it up after a disappointing first half to the season, hitting .314 with six homers and 18 RBI across 18 games since the All-Star break.

Calhoun went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-6 loss to the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Calhoun has risen from the ashes in July, slashing .322/.378/.759 with 10 homers and 25 RBI following an abysmal first three months of the season (.162/.216/.224). The 30-year-old's recent hot play and placement atop the order against righties has restored his status as a viable mixed-league fantasy outfielder.

Calhoun went 2-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a game-ending solo home run to send the Angels to a 4-3 extra-innings victory over the Mariners on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The outfielder walked it off in this contest, touching up Juan Nicasio with a solo blast in the bottom of the 10th inning to send the Angels to the victory over their division rivals. It continued what has been a resurgent stretch for Calhoun following his dreadful start to the season, as his average is now finally above the Mendoza Line at .201. It'll take a while for him to fully dig out of the early-season hole, but his recent hot streak leaves hope he'll be able to do so.
