TEMPE, Ariz. — When Kole Calhoun played the final game of the 2019 season in an Angels uniform, he suspected that it would be his last time.The subsequent winter didn’t change that, up until the moment he signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks.“Never really a moment I though I’d be back,” Calhoun said Saturday, just before playing a spring training game against his former team. “There was some talk, but nothing very serious, which was fine. Don’t get me wrong. I know what’s coming in the minor leagues. I know what they got. And Goody. Like I said before I left, right field in the Angels organization is in pretty good hands with what they’ve got coming.”The presence of Brian Goodwin, and the looming presence of top prospect Jo Adell, made it a fairly straightforward decision for the Angels to decline Calhoun’s $14 million option for 2020. Calhoun had spent parts of eight seasons with the Angels, who drafted him out of Arizona State in the eighth round of the 2010 draft. He had a chance to revisit his Angels career when pulling into Tempe Diablo Stadium on Saturday, though. Many of the fans gave him a standing ovation before his first plate appearance.“Driving up and seeing all the old stuff, some old faces and stuff, it’s cool,” Calhoun said. “After so many years over here, getting to come back and see so many people and friendly people, it was really cool.” Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Calhoun said he was excited to sign with the Diamondbacks, a team he cheered for as a kid growing up in Arizona. He still lives in the Phoenix area, so it has made the transition easy.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros
