Today, the Angels signed Kole Calhoun to a contract extension to be an Angel through 2019!
The news was first reported by the Angels themselves.
Good news indeed. This covers the three years of arbitration remaining along with an option for his first year of free agency.

This is a win-win for both Calhoun, who gets some nice guaranteed money, and the Angels, who get an extra year of control.
So today, the red baron stays red, and a good deal is struck for both sides.
