Braves signed INF Christian Colon to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Colon batted just .160/.236/.180 in 57 plate appearances this past season between the Royals and Marlins, but the 28-year-old former top prospect can play all around the infield defensively and might have a shot of cracking the Opening Day roster with the rebuilding Braves.

Marlins designated INF Christian Colon for assignment.

Colon has hit only .160/.236/.180 over 24 games this season for the Royals and Marlins and has now been removed from the 40-man roster twice. He should have a decent chance to clear waivers this time.

Marlins claimed INF Christian Colon off waivers from the Royals.

Colon was designated for assignment by the Royals last week. The 27-year-old owns an underwhelming .263/.323/.329 batting line in the majors, but the Marlins could use the depth with Adeiny Hechavarria (oblique) and Miguel Rojas (thumb) on the disabled list.

Royals designated INF Christian Colon for assignment.

Colon was batting just .176 with a .222 on-base percentage this season at the major league level. For his career the 27-year-old infielder holds a .263/.323/.329 slash line.

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon has batted just .228/.295/.268 in 140 plate appearances this season at the major league level. He'll function as infield depth for Kansas City down the stretch.

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

Colon has seen 127 at-bats with the Royals this season, but has done next to nothing with them. The 27-year-old infielder worked to a .228/.295/.268 triple-slash with no homers and five doubles in his previous opportunities with the defending champs this season.

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon will give the Royals much-needed infield depth. He batted just .250/.313/.295 in 48 plate appearances earlier this season with Kansas City and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

Colon saw a decent chunk of playing time with the Royals prior to his Wednesday demotion. He just didn't do much with it. In 42 at-bats, the 27-year-old infielder slashed .262/.311/.310 with a pair of doubles. He could see additional major league time later this season, but doesn't make for anything resembling a fantasy play.

Christian Colon went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Even with the two-hit afternoon, Colon finishes spring with a .167 average. In doing so, he likely lost out on a chance to enter the year as the Royals' starter at the keystone, a spot occupied by the still-warm corpse of Omar Infante the past two seasons. Colon is still likely to earn a bench spot, but he obviously carries no fantasy value without a defined role.

Christian Colon finished 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored Saturday against the Rangers.

Colon batted leadoff and started at second base for the Royals, a job he's hoping to win this spring. The stolen base was his first in Cactus League play. He would seem to have a leg up on Omar Infante, who has been sidelined after offseason surgery, for the starting spot, but his .182 spring average hasn't helped. It's likely this one will come down to the wire.

Christian Colon played the role of the unlikely hero for the Royals in an unbelievable come-from-behind 7-2 victory in Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday, delivering a pinch-hit RBI single in the 12th inning.

It was the first at-bat of the postseason for the 26-year-old infielder, and he quickly fell behind 0-2 against Addison Reed before battling back and lining the go-ahead single into left field, plating pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson who had swiped second base and advanced on a ground ball.

Royals recalled INF Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha.

Colon has hit .244/.306/.295 over 29 games with the Royals this season. He'll serve as a backup infielder the rest of the way.

Royals optioned INF Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha.

Colon hasn't been playing much of late and has picked up just one hit in 16 plate appearances since the beginning of June. Dusty Coleman has replaced him on the roster.
Fri, Jul 3, 2015 03:36:00 PM

Christian Colon went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Colon hit an RBI double in the sixth inning -- consequently stealing third base for his first steal of the year -- before driving in another run with a groundout in the eighth. A couple of two-hit games have raised Colon's average to .235, but he's not much of an offensive option for the Royals at this point.
