Calhoun was on a 7-for-15 stretch when he suffered a Grade 2 sprain of his right ankle while stepping on a soft patch beyond first base on April 15. Calhoun, who will likely bat leadoff again when Josh Hamilton returns next week, is fresh off going 11-for-22 with a homer during a five-game rehab stint for Triple-A Salt Lake.
The 26-year-old said his timing is "something I still have to work into," but he gained full confidence in the ankle when he was able to play the field for games on Monday night and Tuesday morning.
"I should be pretty much ready to go," Calhoun said. "There's definitely going to be some growing pains going through this thing and getting back to it and playing every day. Hopefully I just keep getting better and better as the days go on."
