Is Kole Calhoun Ever Going to Get Respect?

KC - USA TODAY Sports

I know Kole Calhoun lacks all the pedigree of a top prospect with no single tool a jaw-dropper. But how much more does he have to rake in the minors for people to seriously consider him a possible starting corner outfielder for the Angels?

Despite breaking a bone that cost him the first 30 games of the season, Calhoun has elevated every aspect of his well-rounded game, with an ISO of .229, 10 steals (and 1 CS) and 8 homers in just 50 games, nearly as many walks (25) as strikeouts (27), a .337 batting average, the sum total of which is producing runs in the PCL at 53% above average. All that and and above-average fielder as a corner outfielder with the arm to play either left or right.

On an Angel team that can be so streaky, he could be a source of stability.
