The man the Texas Rangers got from the Dodgers for Yu Darvish, Willie Calhoun, has been called up and will make his major league debut tonight.

Calhoun was one of three minor leaguers the Rangers got for Darvish and he’s the most promising of the bunch. The left fielder/second baseman is 22, and was selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. At the time of the trade he was L.A.’s fourth overall prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. This season, he hit .300/.355/.572 with 31 home runs and 93 RBIs in 128 Triple-A games between the two organizations this summer.
