The Rangers are calling up outfielder Willie Calhoun to the big leagues, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Calhoun, 24, was a consensus top-100 prospect going into the 2017 and ’18 seasons and has now graduated from prospect lists. He struggled in 48 major league games over the last two years, batting .233/.283/.338.

Calhoun performed very well against the competition with Triple-A Nashville this season, batting .304/.416/.557 with eight home runs and 22 RBI in 138 trips to the plate. He’ll be in the Rangers’ lineup for Wednesday night’s 8:15 ET game against the Royals.

Update: He wasted no time homering in his 2019 debut.
