Calhoun coming up
Minor League outfielder Kole Calhoun will be up with the Angels Monday, a day after outfielders Vernon Wells (right thumb) and Ryan Langerhans (right shoulder) left the series finale against the Padres with injuries, a source familiar with the situation told MLB.com.
Wells and Langerhans are both expected to go on the DL, so the Angels will have to call up a second player. Mike Scioscia indicated Sunday that one of those could be a reliever, after the bullpen accounted for 6 2/3 innings in Sunday’s 3-2, 13-inning loss.
If that’s the case, Bobby Cassevah, Kevin Jepsen or Ryan Brasier could be options.
Calhoun, a 24-year-old left-handed hitter who can play all three outfield spots, was hitting .296 with five homers and 31 RBIs for Triple-A Salt Lake — after starring in A ball and impressing in Spring Training.
The Angels would have to make room for him on the 40-man roster.
