The latest Christian Colon MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Royals | Salvador Perez, Omar Infante to sit

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 11:02:46 -0700

Kansas City Royals C Salvador Perez and 2B Omar Infante are not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright Sunday, April 24. 2B Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting seventh, while C Drew Butera will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Colon has collected only two hits in 10 at-bats this season and probably can be avoided in all leagues. Butera has received only three at-bats and is not a strong fantasy option.

Royals | Mike Moustakas not in lineup

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 16:22:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Friday, April 15. 2B Omar Infante moves up to the two-hole, while 2B Christian Colon is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Infante is off to a .310 start (9-for-29) with three doubles, but even with a move all the way up the batting order, he remains a low-end second base option in daily formats. Colon should be ignored everywhere.

Royals | Omar Infante not in lineup

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 10:48:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Sunday, April 10. 2B Christian Colon will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is receiving his first start of the season and is coming off a decent 2015 season where he hit .290 in limited playing time. Colon probably should be avoided in most leagues but could be used in some AL-only leagues.

Royals | Christian Colon scuffling at plate

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 23:56:36 -0800

Kansas City Royals 2B Christian Colon is hitless in 11 at-bats in Cactus League spring game action.

Fantasy Tip: Colon is battling veteran Omar Infante, who has been slow to recover from offseason elbow surgery, for the starting second baseman job. Colon has a chance to run away with the job with a hot spring, but that hasn't been the case. Neither is particularly attractive from a fantasy perspective outside of the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues.

Royals | Omar Infante close to playing the field

Tue, 08 Mar 2016 12:47:03 -0800

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante (elbow) is making progress from surgery to shave down a bone spur in his right elbow in the offseason, and he is on track to play the field in a spring game for the first time later this week. He went 0-for-4 as the designated hitter in a Cactus League game Monday, March 7. The Royals are calling Infante day-to-day right now. He'll compete with 2B Christian Colon for the second base job this year.

Fantasy Tip: The 34-year-old is fading quickly. He rarely walks these days and makes less contact. Plus, his power was always lacking, and his speed has declined, as well. He's no lock for regular playing time and is strictly an option in deep AL-only leagues.

Royals | Omar Infante might not play every day

Sat, 09 Jan 2016 10:16:06 -0800

Kansas City Royals 2B Omar Infante is not guaranteed to be the team's everyday second baseman, according to general manager Dayton Moore. "I just know we're going to put the best team out there each and every night, and I know Omar is capable of being that guy," Moore said. "But we like Christian Colon, too. But you need them all to win, as you know. It's a team, and you count on everyone to perform. I don't know if Omar, at this point, is going to play 162 games."

Fantasy Tip: Neither Infante nor Colon will match the offensive production that Ben Zobrist provided for Kansas City down the stretch last year. Infante is still considered to have the edge in the competition, even though he is recovering from minor surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow. They should be targeted exclusively in AL-only fantasy leagues during the later rounds.

Royals | Ben Zobrist sitting vs. Cleveland

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 08:23:52 -0700

Kansas City Royals 2B Ben Zobrist is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 27. 2B Christian Colon draws into the lineup and is batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) owns a solid .299/.383/.488 slash line over 52 games since joining the Royals, and he remains a low-end starting option at either middle infield position in all fantasy formats. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns a .352 on-base percentage this season and boasts a respectable floor at a discount for FantasyScore contests Sunday.

Royals | Alcides Escobar sitting vs. Detroit

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:50:03 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. 2B Christian Colon is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has hit a wall in the second half with a .203/.241/.236 slash line, and he isn't leading off anymore, either. He shouldn't be owned outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) checks out as an upside source of cap relief Sunday, albeit one with plenty of risk.

Royals | Alcides Escobar has a seat

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 13:20:28 -0700

Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar is out of the lineup Saturday, Sept. 19, with SS Christian Colon hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) doesn't have enough offensive prowess to use on FantasyScore against Matt Boyd.
