After their 9-2 loss on Saturday to the Texas Rangers, the Los Angeles Angels optioned outfielder Kole Calhoun to Triple A Salt Lake. The roster move makes room for starting pitcher Dan Haren, who is scheduled to return from the disabled list to start Sunday night in the series finale against the division rivals.
Calhoun, the Angels' eighth round draft pick in 2010, was 3-for-15 with a pair of walks in two stints with the Angels this season. He was recalled from Triple A on July 15 when the Halos placed relief pitcher Jordan Walden on the disabled list with a strained right biceps.
Haren was placed on the disabled list on July 5 with lower back tightness, which the right-hander said contributed to his poor season to date. Haren is 6-8 with a 4.86 ERA in 17 starts this season. He allowed two runs in five innings on Monday in a rehab start with Class A Inland Empire.
