HOUSTON — Willie Calhoun is still in the Texas Rangers organization.
His stated desire to be traded remains unfulfilled. A deal might be out there, but no team has inquired about him and the Rangers haven’t contacted any teams.
The Rangers seem content, or indifferent, to let him do what he said he was going to do May 1 when sent to Triple A Round Rock. He told The Athletic that he was headed to the minors to make himself a desirable trade piece, words that he doesn’t deny but he thought they didn’t sound bad as he was saying them.
Well, they read terribly.
