Another Angel went under the knife this past week as Kole Calhoun had surgery to repair a core muscle injury that had bothered him for some time. This probably explains a slump Kole had in August and early September.
Overall, however, Calhoun bounced back in 2016 from what was considered a down season in 2015 despite a career high in dingers by hitting .271 / .348 / .438 with 18 HR and 75 RBI, and setting career highs in doubles with 35 and walks with 67.
The recovery time for this procedure is six to eight weeks. Kole has already begun the rehabilitation process, and will have a normal offseason. So he will be healthy and ready for 2017.
