Royals' Colon (aka, help for Infante) hopes to return in a week or so

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- With all the focus recently on the injuries to left-hander Danny Duffy and closer Greg Holland, another key injury to a Royal already has been somewhat forgotten.

The original diagnosis...

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....

Flanny's Five: It feels more like '85 than '03 for the '14 Royals

Friday Notes

The Kansas City Royals are doing things with our hearts that many of us have never really experienced, and that's pretty awesome. For the first time since I've been writing this column, they've been all alone in first place the whole time between Friday Notes columns, which is almost as impressive as the fact that they haven't been in sole possession of first place...

One defensive misfire derails the Royals in Colorado

Pitching and defense have been the Royals' calling card all season. But a rare defensive miscue turned what looked like a victory into a loss as the Colorado Rockies scored four unearned runs in a 5-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday night. Third baseman Christian Colon, playing for Mike Moustakas, fielded a hot grounder with two outs and none on in the sixth and promptly threw...

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...

KC Wins 3-0 Over Oakland

NEW WINNING STREAK One in a row! New streak! I'm also getting excited. Knowing the Kansas City sports scene (aside from Sporting), this is generally a bad thing to have happen to you, but it's probably time to just go with it. It was a predictably low scoring affair between two lefties having very good seasons, Jason Vargas and Scott Kazmir. In the third inning, Nori...

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...
