Date:

Christian Colon (finger) played six innings and had two hits in an instructional league game Thursday.

Colon has a broken bone in the tip of his right middle finger but isn't giving up hope of making it back this season. It's possible if he can convince the Royals he's healthy that they'll carry him on their postseason roster.
Sep 26 - 1:48 PM

Royals placed INF Christian Colon on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to September 7, with a fractured right middle finger.

Colon had been holding out hope that he could play through the injury, but the Royals obviously decided against it. He hit .302/.348/.442 over 20 games across a few stints with the big club this season.
Sep 19 - 8:52 AM

Christian Colon will test out his broken right middle finger with some throwing drills on Thursday.

Colon suffered the injury just a week ago, but the swelling has gone down and he's hoping to play through it. He doesn't expected hitting to be an issue, but throwing could. Even if he's cleared to play, don't expect Colon to have much of a role down the stretch.
Sep 10 - 10:48 AM

Christian Colon left Tuesday's game versus the Rangers with a broken middle finger.

Colon suffered the injury while trying to field a ground ball. A Royals official would say only that he'll be out "a while," but the probability would seem to be high that his season is over.
Sep 2 - 11:29 PM

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Colon was sent out last week following the acquisition of Jayson Nix, but he's back now that rosters have expanded. The 25-year-old is hitting .302 (13-for-43) over 19 games with the Royals this season and provides some infield versatility.
Sep 2 - 1:38 PM

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Colon was sent back out to make room on the active roster for Jayson Nix who was claimed off waivers from the Pirates. He's expected to rejoin the Royals at some point in early September.
Aug 30 - 12:42 PM

Christian Colon went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal Thursday in the Royals' 7-3 victory over the A's.

Of course, even Christian Colon is contributing as the Royals take three out of four from baseball's best team. Colon went eight straight days without playing from Aug. 4-11, so, dating back to Aug. 2, his last five appearances have all come against Oakland, and he's gone 6-for-14 in those five games. The steal was his first as a major leaguer. His start today came at second base, but the Royals will primarily use him at third base against left-handers going forward.
Aug 14 - 5:46 PM

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon was up for a cup of coffee earlier this month, picking up four hits in 12 at-bats. He can play all over the infield and should see some starts at third base against left-handed pitching.
Jul 28 - 7:26 PM

Royals prospect INF Christian Colon went 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs on Thursday for Triple-A Omaha.

He also tallied three RBI and scored two runs. The game was Colon's second since returning from a brief stint in the major leagues, where he batted .333 with three extra-base hits in six games. On the season, the 25-year-old has batted .297/.358/.403 with 20 extra-base hits (six home runs), 50 runs scored and 14 stolen bases in 76 games at Triple-A. He's likely to return to the major leagues at some point during the second half of the season.

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

Colon picked up four hits over 12 at-bats in his couple weeks with the big club. Nori Aoki has returned from the DL to take Colon's roster spot.
Jul 11 - 3:34 PM

Christian Colon had a big night at the plate in Friday's win over the Indians, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple, three runs scored and an RBI.

The rookie infielder got the start at second base in place of the injured Omar Infante, and if he continues to swing the bat well he'll continue to find his way into the lineup on a regular basis.
Jul 4 - 10:31 PM

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon has batted .296/.360/.384 with four home runs and 14 stolen bases in 74 games this season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old former fourth overall draft pick can play all around the infield defensively.
Jun 30 - 1:37 PM

Royals prospect Christian Colon went 3-for-6 with two doubles and a home run on Friday for Triple-A Omaha.

Colon is hitting .286/.348/.384 for the season, but has gone 7-for-16 with four walks, two doubles, and a home run while playing third base. With the struggles of Mike Moustakas, the Royals could be seeing if the former 4th overall pick could be their third baseman of the future.
Jun 14 - 11:02 AM

Royals second base prospect Christian Colon could be called up if Omar Infante needs to go on the disabled list.

Infante's injury may not require a trip to the disabled list, but if it does Colon could make his major league debut. His only competition is Johnny Giavotella, who has repeatedly struggled during his time in the major leagues. Colon is hitting .235/.316/.353 in Triple-A, but the 2010 first-round pick hit .296/.367/.370 during spring training in 2014.
