Willie Calhoun Takes Swings Monday

Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun (jaw) took swings on Monday for the first time since fracturing his jaw in spring training three weeks ago. Calhoun got lucky with the season being delayed due to the coronavirus. Otherwise, he definitely wouldn't have been ready for the start of the regular season. With the season not starting for another couple months most likely, he'll be fully recovered by then and is expected to have an everyday role in the outfield after hitting .269/.323/.524 with 21 home runs and 48 RBI in 309 at-bats in 2019. One of the team's top prospects when he was on the farm, Calhoun has exciting upside and should come at a nice value to those that wait in deep mixed leagues.

Willie Calhoun Cleared For Baseball Activities

Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun (jaw) said on his Twitter account that he was cleared on Thursday to start doing his daily workouts and to resume baseball activities. Manager Chris Woodward said on Wednesday that he expects Calhoun to be ready for the start of the regular season, whenever that may be. The 25-year-old had surgery around three weeks ago for a fractured jaw that he suffered in spring training, but he's making nice progress. He's expected to be a regular in Texas' outfield in 2020 and will come at an excellent value in deep mixed leagues this year. Calhoun hit .269/.323/.524 with 21 home runs and 48 RBI in just 83 games last season.

Willie Calhoun Expected To Be Ready For Opening Day

Texas Rangers outfielder Willie Calhoun (jaw) is still on the road to recovery, but his manager Chris Woodward expects him to be ready for the start of the MLB season. The 25-year old is already on a stationary bike and looks to be in line for a full slate of games, whenever the 2020 season begins. Calhoun's recovery will directly impact Nick Solak's playing time because Solak was the first man up to benefit from his absence. The combination of Calhoun's recovery and the delay to the start of the season will likely take Solak off the draft board in 12-team leagues. Calhoun was a popular breakout pick before the fractured jaw after hitting 21 home runs with a .848 OPS last season, and now fantasy owners can draft the former top-100 prospect with the same confidence as they did before the jaw injury.
