Colon got the start at third base Thursday with left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu on the mound for the Dodgers, going 0-for-2 before being replaced by Derek Dietrich.

It looks like Colon will be platooning at third with Dietrich while Martin Prado (hamstring) is on the DL. The former Royal is just 3-for-19 on the season and is still looking for his first extra-base hit, but with a steady (if small) role on the Marlins he could begin to get comfortable at the plate.
