Profile: Though Calhoun endured a decline in home run power, he simply turned those previous homers into doubles, resulting in an identical ISO as he posted in 2015. The drop in home runs could have been worse, though, as his total was boosted by a career high fly ball rate. Most of his other metrics have been amazingly consistent, while the jump in walk rate and reduction in strikeout rate -- both to career bests -- are positive signs. Then again, he accomplished those bests with a career high swing rate and the second highest swinging strike rate of his career. It's not really the shift in approach you want to see. While it would be smart to figure his fly ball rate drops back some, you also have to assume that his HR/FB rate rebounds, at least partially, but he probably won't climb back to his 2015 level given. Expect more of the same in 2017. (Mike Podhorzer

The Quick Opinion: The career best walk and strikeout rates are a positive, except when you dig into how he got there, while the big drop in HR/FB rate was discouraging. Figure that the process might return to his pre-2016 days, but the results end up similar to his 2016.
