Number Munchers: Back to Minors Part II – Do Numbers Matter?

A couple weeks back, Number Munchers took a look at the career progression of Christian Colon. Coming off a short stint of initial major league success, kneejerk fans tired of watching “Moose vs the Mendoza Line” and Omar Infante’s tendency to fluctuate at a moment’s notice between Mr Clutch and Dr Awful have been calling for Colon to get an everyday spot in the lineup....

Royals' Colon does one thing very well: He wins

MINNEAPOLIS -- After infielder Christian Colon was drafted in 2010 by the Royals, the hardest adjustment he had to make in the minor leagues wasn't adapting to better pitching. The challenge was not getting upset at his teammates for playing selfish baseball. "He was such a team-first guy in college at (Cal-State) Fullerton, team captain and all that," Royals assistant...

Meet Christian Colon, a young version (OK, potentially) of Omar Infante

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Christian Colon, the Royals' first-round pick in 2010, might never be the superstar fans would logically expect from a fourth overall pick in a draft. But the Royals are comfortable projecting that Colon, in a full season in the majors, could wind up hitting about .280 with 20-25 doubles, 10-12 homers, 50 or so RBI and perhaps 10-15 timely steals. And they...

Rookies Colon, Ventura Lead Royals to 7-1 Win over Indians

When Omar Infante was scratched just before first pitch due to “back soreness”, Royals fans couldn’t have been optimistic that they would get much offensive production from whoever started at second base. Making his first major league start, Christian Colon was ready to prove everybody wrong. Colon came through with three extra base hits, Yordano Ventura pitched into the ninth...

Colon drawing comparisons to Jeter

Now, this is the Christian Colon the Royals envisioned when they drafted him with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 draft. After a slow start, Colon has heated up in the month of May and raised his average to .312 with a .370 on-base percentage for the Class AA Northwest Arkansas Naturals. Colon has three homers, 15 RBIs and eight stolen bases. That's a significant improvement...

Colon aiming to join buddies with Royals

Before all the Bubba Starling hoopla overtook Kansas City fans this summer, another Royals first-round pick was projected to make a significant impact with the big-league club. And much more quickly than Starling likely will. Christian Colon, the Royals' top pick in 2010, continues to make steady improvement, at least enough to envision him as the final piece to the Royals...
