The hitter with the Most Interesting Swing in the World is going to have to work on it a bit longer, as the Angels announced they are activating right-fielder Kole Calhoun from the disabled list. The corresponding move, as you might imagine, results in Jabari Blash being sent down to the minor leagues.

Blash batted .111/.238/.111 for a 10 wRC+ and -0.2 fWAR in seven games, striking out a whopping forty percent of the time.

The Angels hope Kole Calhoun can figure it out, and fast. Calhoun has maintained his remarkable defensive prowess but completely forgot how to hit, slashing .145/.195/.179 for a wRC+ of 3 (97% worse at the plate than that of an average hitter) across 185 plate appearances. His -1.1 fWAR is tied for third-worst ahead of Trayce Thompson (-1.2) and Chris Davis (-1.9), a distant first.
