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.

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...
