After one nondescript season at Arizona, Calhoun transferred to Yavapai JC, where he's been anything but nondescript. After not homering in 46 games with the Wildcats, Calhoun led all Division I junior college hitters with 31 homeruns in 61 games this spring and helped the Roughriders to the Junior College World Series. Yavapai plays its home games in an extreme hitters environment, but Calhoun's bat was nearly as destructive on the road as it was at home in Roughrider Park. Listed at 5-foot-9, 180 pounds, Calhoun isn't a big, physical specimen, but brings a short stroke and quick bat to the plate. His power is mostly to his pull side and he finds a way to turn on pitches he can hit. The big question is where he'll play in the field. Second base is his preferred position but he hasn't dedicated himself to getting better there, and instead could wind up in left field here his average arm will play.
