Willie Calhoun homers for second straight day Wednesday

New York Yankees outfielder Willie Calhoun hit his second homer in as many days Wednesday against the Guardians.

Fantasy Impact

Both Calhoun and Jake Bauers took Guardians ace Shane Bieber deep in the fifth inning while Calhoun collected a game-tying single in the ninth to set up a walk-off Yankees win one inning later. It was a miserable start to the season for the former top prospect but Calhoun now has three hits, two homers, and three RBI over his last two games. He's getting his chance with a pair of outfielders in Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton currently on the injured list.

Willie Calhoun returns to starting lineup Thursday

New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Willie Calhoun is back in the starting lineup Thursday versus the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Calhoun didn't start Wednesday's contest against the Guardians but is back in the lineup and hitting fifth against the Twins Thursday night. Signed to a minors deal this winter, the former top prospect is 2-for-9 with a double in just two games this season and will take on Twins right-hander Joe Ryan on Thursday.

Willie Calhoun signs minor-league deal with Yankees

Outfielder Willie Calhoun has signed with the New York Yankees on a minor-league deal.

Fantasy Impact

Once a top prospect in the Dodgers' organization, the 28-year-old has scuffled at the big-league level. Calhoun owns a .240 lifetime average with 32 home runs and a .703 OPS across 257 games played. He split the 2022 campaign between the Rangers and Giants, hitting just .135 with one home runs across 62 trips to the plate.

Willie Calhoun traded to Giants

The San Francisco Giants have acquired OF Willie Calhoun from the Texas Rangers in exchange for OF Steven Duggar.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old is originally from Vallejo, California, and has not played in the majors since April 29. Calhoun has played for the Rangers his entire career, slashing .241/.407/.707 with 32 home runs and 103 RBI. Fantasy managers who just lost OF Luis Gonzalez to injury should keep an eye on how the Giants deploy Calhoun, though be ready to absorb his horrible batting average if you pick him up.

Willie Calhoun clears waivers, accepts assignment to Triple-A

Willie Calhoun has cleared waivers and has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Round Rock.

Fantasy Impact

Calhoun, who had expressed a desire to be traded, could have elected free agency instead of accepting his assignment to Triple-A. But doing so would have meant forfeiting the pro-rated remainder of his 2022 contract, so he opted to stay. It's unlikely he sees a promotion to the majors this year unless he's traded so he's most likely won't have any fantasy relevance in the near future.
