Christian Colon

I know next to nothing about Colon but from what I've read he's a polished player and close to MLB ready. The question will be if he can stick at shortstop, if he can't the Royals may have overreached but we won't know that for a few years. From here I'll defer to the experts:

Royals Prospects - Royals 2010 #1 pick Christian Colon SS Cal State Fullerton
Baseball Beginnings - Scouting Report: Christian Colon, INF, Cal State Fullerton
PNR Scouting  - 2010 Scouting Reports - Christian Colon


  1. not a great pick imo, he'll be moved to second base where the royals already have a solid prospect in giavotella. if he stays at short he's an ok pick but still not worthy of going #4 overall.

  2. Great pick and he'll stay at ss. Future infield:

    1B - Hosmer
    2B - Giavotela
    SS - Colon
    3B - Moose

    The future looks pretty sweet.
