Yes, Mr. Calhoun will be mentioned in a whole lot of deals this summer. With his raw power and offensive tools, he is attractive to many teams. Calhoun can be a top prospect in many other farm systems. There is no doubting his ability to hammer the baseball. Last season in Double-A he hit 27 jimmy-jacks. This season he already has 11 while in Oklahoma City (Triple-A).
He is listed as a second baseman, but that is not set in stone. In reality, he is still looking for a position that suits him best. For the time being it is second but that can change. For Calhoun, it has been his bat that makes him jump off the field. If he can settle in at second base or any spot, he will become even more attractive. The Dodgers can afford to move the second baseman because of the current MLB roster. They have four legitimate options at second base options in Forsythe, Hernandez, Utley, and Taylor.
Calhoun is stuck behind those four players and emerging prospects like Gavin Lux, and Brendon Davis looks to be catching up to the 22-year-old. Many teams value him, and so do the Dodgers which is why he could be the cornerstone piece in a trade that acquires a star. It will be no surprise if this pure hitter is moved this summer.
