Rangers calling up top prospect Willie Calhoun

Texas Rangers

Willie Calhoun is finally set to make his long-awaited 2018 debut.

TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Texas Rangers will be calling up the top outfield prospect for Friday’s game against the Cleveland Indians.

Calhoun, 23, was the blue chip prospect acquired by the Rangers from the Los Angeles Dodgers in last year’s Yu Darvish trade. He made his major league debut late last season (hitting .265 in 13 games) and has been batting .306 with eight home runs and 42 RBIs for Class AAA Round Rock this season.

The Rangers are last in the AL West at 41-56, and some of their veterans sure sound like they may be checked out. Now is as good a time as any for the team to embrace a youth movement and get players like Calhoun some reps.
