The Texas Rangers have announced that outfielder Willie Calhoun will start a rehab assignment on Thursday. Calhoun is currently on the injured list with a leg strain.

There doesn’t appear to be a clear path back to the major league roster right now for Calhoun, given that the bench currently includes Danny Santana, who is also the backup CF, and Logan Forsythe. Calhoun likely will end up being activated an optioned next week, barring someone getting hurt.
