MINNEAPOLIS Chris Colabello's first stint in the majors was a brief one.
The Minnesota Twins optioned the 29-year-old Colabello to Triple-A Rochester to make room for Trevor Plouffe on the 25-man roster. Plouffe was reinstated Wednesday from the 7-day concussion disabled list. He suffered the injury in Atlanta when he slid into second base and was kneed in the back of the head by Braves second baseman Dan Uggla.
Colabello, who spent seven seasons in the Canadian-American League before joining the Twins organization last year, made his MLB debut on May 22. He recorded his first big league hit on Saturday in Detroit but was just 1-for-11 in his short time with Minnesota.
Tuesday in Milwaukee, Colabello made a rookie mistake when he was wearing the wrong uniform. He came to the plate as a pinch hitter late in the game donning a blue jersey with "Twins" on the front. His teammates, however, were wearing jerseys that said "Minnesota" on them.
Despite the uniform gaffe, Colabello has shown this year that he can hit. In 46 games with Rochester before his call-up, he batted .358 with a team-high 12 homers and 39 RBI.

When a rookie joins his big league squad, it is common for veterans to play clubhouse pranks on the newest team member. But this was no joke put on by the Minnesota Twins, just an old-fashioned rookie mistake by outfielder Chris Colabello.

Minnesota Twins’ rookie Chris Colabello showed up to pinch hit ninth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Brewers, and unfortunately he was unable to convert a hit.

Minnesota Twins rookie Chris Colabello has had only 11 at-bats in his Major League career, so he is not yet fully familiar with how things work at the MLB level. In the big leagues, all of the games are televised. That means if you wear the wrong uniform, someone is going to notice. Colabello was [...]
Minnesota Twins rookie Chris Colabello was called up last week and has been batting very poorly, hitting 1 for 11 since his debut. Things only got worse for him last night when he wore the wrong jersey in their game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. Rather than wearing the jersey that said “Minnesota” in script on the front, he wore the one that said “Twins”...
Playing with some confidence in their series against the struggling Milwaukee Brewers, the Minnesota Twins could get an added boost if one of their sluggers can return.
The resurgent Twins will attempt to win four in a row for the first time since late April on Thursday night when they host Milwaukee, which is looking to avoid its longest skid of the season.
Although third baseman...
MINNEAPOLIS Trevor Plouffe is heading to the disabled list. Again.
On the same day the Twins third baseman was activated from the 7-day concussion DL, Plouffe injured his left calf during pregame warmups on Wednesday. He was scratched from the lineup and was not in the lineup Thursday. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Plouffe will land on the 15-day DL due to his strained calf...
Trevor Plouffe had not even been off the 7-day disabled list long enough to play in a game before he was placed back on the 15-day disabled list. The 26-year old outfielder was recovering from a concussion, but now he is battling a calf strain.
Tyler Mason of Fox Sports North confirmed the strange move yesterday. It was only strange in the fact that Plouffe had not been available...
MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins have seen players go through concussions before. Most notably, Justin Morneau was sidelined for the second half of the 2010 season when he was hit in the head while sliding into second base in Toronto.
With that image not yet faded from the Twins' minds, it was understandable for Minnesota to worry when a similar situation happened to third baseman...
The Twins got their game in last night! Incredible!
Chris Colabello got sent down yesterday. This was probably why.
This happened yesterday. It was F-8 on Twingo.
This is an awesome use of personal finances.
Chicago Cubs 9, Chicago White Sox 3 – Dioner Navarro had three home runs. I mean, clearly, the universe was working against the White Sox in this one.
