CHRISTIAN COLON RUMORS

Syracuse Makes the Cut for Christian Colon

Defensive tackle prospect and priority Syracuse University target Christian Colon won’t decide on a school until November, but the 3-star talent from North Carolina released his top five this afternoon and, as I think most of us expected, the Orange made the cut. Colon – who is a good friend and former teammate of Robert […]

Watch: Foul ball takes crazy turn into fair territory during Tigers-Royals game

Here's something you don't see every day. During Sunday's Tigers-Royals game, we witnessed one of the stranger foul-to-fair ball plays in recent memory when Christian Colon blooped a pitch from Shane Greene about five feet into foul territory. But the ball took a crazy turn right across the baseline into fair territory. By the time Colon realized the ball had rolled fair, Miguel...

Video: Christian Colon hits magic foul ball that turned fair

Vine Royals reserve infielder Christian Colon hit a ball, better described as a dribbler, that started off six to eight feet foul and up in Miguel Cabrera’s glove in fair territory.  The ball off the Hispanic American’s bat had so much English on it, it made a 45 degree turn while rolling along the Comerica Park grass. Credit Miguel Cabrera for not giving up on the play. ...

Royals Injury Update: Christian Colon hopes to play

Kansas City Royals rookie, Christian Colon may have a broken finger tip on his middle finger, but that doesn't necessarily mean that his season is over.

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 general manager...

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.

And they project...
