Los Angeles Dodgers Sign 11-Year Veteran Outfielder

Outfielder Kole Calhoun, a veteran of 11 years in the MLB, has made a significant move in his career.

After exercising his opt-out clause in a minor league deal with the New York Yankees, Calhoun has signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers on a minor league contract.

This comes after an impressive stint with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate, Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where Calhoun showcased his skills with a strong batting line of .293/.402/.561. In just 97 plate appearances, he recorded four home runs, six doubles, and two triples, demonstrating his ability to contribute both with power and consistency.

Calhoun's arrival provides a potential boost to the Dodgers' struggling outfield, as they seek to strengthen their overall performance.

The 35-year-old veteran, widely recognized for his time with the Los Angeles Angels, has implemented swing changes that have resulted in improved results at the plate, including a promising .963 OPS in Triple-A.

Given his recent swing adjustments and consistent production, Calhoun's addition presents an attractive option for the Dodgers as they look to strengthen their roster depth and improve their outfield performance.

Over his 11-year career, Calhoun holds a .243/.316/.418 triple-slash line, with 173 home runs, 557 RBIs, 34 stolen bases, and 618 runs scored across 1,196 games played. Photo Credit: Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports
