The Giants acquired outfielder Willie Calhoun and cash considerations from the Texas Rangers in exchange for outfielder Steven Duggar, San Francisco announced Thursday.

Calhoun fell out of favor in Texas and requested a trade in May. The Rangers designated the 27-year-old for assignment on June 5.

Texas acquired Calhoun as one of the big pieces when it traded Yu Darvish to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2017. Calhoun finishes his Rangers tenure hitting .241/.300/.407 with 32 home runs and 103 RBIs across 253 games.

Duggar, 28, has spent his entire five-year career in the Bay Area with the Giants.

After setting career highs with eight home runs and a .767 OPS in 2021, Duggar struggled to replicate that success this season. He's battled an oblique injury in 2022, making just 12 appearances and posting a .509 OPS.
