Rangers' Willie Calhoun (jaw) 'back up to 100 percent'
Texas Rangers utility-man Willie Calhoun (jaw) participated in machine batting practice after fully recovering from a fractured jaw suffered in March.
Calhoun is thankfully healthy after suffering a scary injury from a hit-by-pitch during a March Cactus League game. “Health-wise I’m in a really good place right now," said the 25-year old when asked about his current status. "I’m back up to 100 percent. I’ve gained back some of the weight that I lost. Other than that I’m pretty good.”
Expect Calhoun to play everyday in left field against starting right-handers whenever the MLB regular season is ready to begin. numberFire's season-long projection for Calhoun includes a .268 average with 24 home runs and 71 RBI in 524 total plate appearances.
