CHRIS COLABELLO RUMORS

Twins’ Chris Colabello Takes Raindrop To Eye, Makes Catch Anyways (Video)

Chris Colabello is one tough customer. In the fourth inning of Sunday’s contest between the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox, the Twins first baseman managed to catch a Jose Abreu pop-up despite getting hit in the eye a split-second beforehand. Ok, we should clarify. Colabello was only hit by a raindrop. But still. Your browser does not support iframes. A small drop of water...

Twins players more than a little excited to celebrate Little Big League Day

MINNEAPOLIS -- The fact that Billy Heywood wore No. 20 isn't lost on Chris Colabello. Heywood, of course, was the fictional 12-year-old kid who inherited the Twins from his late grandfather in the movie "Little Big League." After becoming the team's owner, he later made himself the manager and led Minnesota on a storybook comeback in a film that captured the hearts...

Back in majors, it seems Colabello's troubles are behind him

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Colabello hopes he's recaptured the magic that made him one of baseball's best stories in April. Three games into his second stint with the Twins this year, he's on the right track. Colabello has delivered several big hits in a limited time since he was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on July 2, the same day Minnesota put first baseman Joe Mauer...

WATCH: Twins player homers while mom is interviewed

Chris Colabello of the Twins hit a two-run shot over the center-field wall to tie the game at 2-2 at the exact same time that his mother was being interviewed on FSN. Not only was it a fairly opportune time for Chris to launch the home run, it was also his mother’s birthday. Not too shabby of a birthday present, huh? The mother’s squeals of joy were pretty fantastic, and we...

Is Chris Colabello like, good?

I've been getting a lot of **** lately because I haven't written anything Twins related.  Honestly between the one million day games and my two completely insane children I haven't gotten to see that much.  I have seen enough to finally make a post, and why not start with American League RBI leader Chris Colabello? First off history is generally against him given that...

Colabello happy to continue playing in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins first baseman Chris Colabello is fluent in three different languages. Korean is not one of them. "Not at all," said Colabello, who speaks English, Spanish and Italian. "One of these days, maybe." There was a chance Colabello would have had to pick up Korean as his third foreign language in order to continue his baseball career. After making...

Colabello's career day powers Twins past White Sox

Chris Colabello was the International League's Most Valuable Player in 2013, and the longtime minor leaguer turned that into a trip to the majors last year. Despite the success Colabello had at Triple-A Rochester, he wasn't able to replicate it with Minnesota in his first season in the big leagues. Despite batting just .194 in 55 games with the Twins last season, Colabello...

Chris Colabello's route to Twins roster an unconventional one

There are players who spent the majority of their careers toiling away in the minor leagues, and then there's Chris Colabello. The 29-year-old Massachusetts native went unnoticed after playing for Assumption College, a private Catholic school in Worcester, Mass. No major league teams were interested -- not even as an undrafted free agent -- so Colabello slipped through the cracks...

Twins’ Chris Colabello: the happiest man in baseball

FORT MYERS, Fla. – Chris Colabello, a non-roster invitee with the Minnesota Twins, is probably the happiest man in baseball this spring. It would be trite to say Colabello, 29, has come out of nowhere. He actually comes from everywhere. Colabello grew up mostly in Massachusetts but spent several years of his childhood in Italy before attending Division II Assumption College in...
