Next to Ozhaino Albies, who was assigned to the same club that he played for last season, the Reds decided to let Calten Daal start another year in the A Advanced Florida State League with the Daytona Tortugas.
After Calten received an invitation to MLB spring training as well, he had a total of twelve appearances with the Reds’ MLB squad. In eighteen at bats he did not really left an impression as he only hit .167 (2 singles and a double).
On the defensive side he did better as he played ten games at short and one game at second base. He committed one error at short, resulting in a .952 fielding percentage at shortstop.
Calten played for the Tortugas during the 2015 campaign. In 112 games he split time at second base and at shortstop. Even though he handled the bat quite well as he hit .270, there is still room for improvement when it comes to his defense. At second base he committed ten errors and as a shortstop twelve. But compared to the 2014 season the 2015 season was a major improvement as Calten committed a Midwest League leading thirty-nine errors in 2014.
Calten participated with team Kingdom of the Netherlands in the inaugural Premier 12 tournament, the unofficial world championship of the WBSC. In twenty-three at bats, he did pretty well as he collected eight hits (.348) of which one triple. He also drove in two runs. Calten was elected in the All World Team as the best shortstop.
If Calten can improve his defense, he may get a promotion to AA Pensacola this season.
