Indians' Chris Colabello: Representing Italy in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colabello will play for Team Italy in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Following last season's suspension for a failed drug test, Colabello will begin his climb back to the majors with the 2017 WBC. The tournament will serve as an opportunity for the first baseman to repair his image and make a good impression on his new team (he signed a minor league deal with the Indians in December). Although he received an invite to spring training, Colabello will likely begin the season at Triple-A Columbus as Carlos Santana and Edwin Encarnacion are entrenched at his position.

Indians' Chris Colabello: Signs minor league deal with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colabello signed a minor league deal, which includes a spring training invite, with the Indians on Tuesday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

The 33-year-old has spent the last two seasons with the Blue Jays organization, but he appeared in only 10 games for the big league club in 2016, due in part to serving an 80-game PED suspension. In 45 minor league contests, mostly at Triple-A, Colabello compiled a meager .185/.254/.293 slash line with 12 RBI and 51 strikeouts. Expectations will be low for Colabello, but the Indians will hope he can regain the form that saw him hit .321 with 54 RBI in 101 major league games in 2015.

Chris Colabello: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Colabello elected to become a free agent on Tuesday, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

After being outrighted off the Blue Jays' 40-man roster, it probably became clear to Colabello that he would have a better chance at earning big league at-bats in a different organization in 2017. He has a career .266/.322/.435 slash line against righties and just a .237/.304/.397 line against southpaws. That is not a very appealing profile for a first baseman/corner outfielder, so he is unlikely to enter next season assured of regular big league at-bats.

Blue Jays' Chris Colabello: Outrighted by Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Colabello cleared waivers and was outrighted by the Jays, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Colabello remains in the organization, but he's no longer on the 40-man roster. Other teams from around the league had the ability to claim the first baseman, but instead Colabello cleared waivers and remains under club control. This is his second career outright, meaning he can elect to become a free agent. The 33-year-old posted an .886 OPS for the Jays in 2015, but in 2016, he received an 80-game suspension after testing positive for a banned substance. Colabello later appeared in 40 games for Triple-A Buffalo, managing a disappointing .180/.248/.288 slash line.

Blue Jays' Chris Colabello: Ends embarrassing season with low numbers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Colabello, who spent the entire second half in the minors following a suspension, slashed a disappointing .185/.254/.293 in 157 at-bats with Triple-A Buffalo.

Colabello's dismal performance in the International League added to the embarrassment of being suspended after testing positive for performance enhancers early in the MLB season. There were high hopes for the first baseman after a career year in 2015, and he was set to play the heavy side of a platoon with Justin Smoak when camp broke in April. Colabello wound up playing in just 10 games for the Jays, going a pathetic 2-for-29 (.069) with nine strikeouts in April. Where Colabello goes from here remains to be seen, but the team hasn't said much to indicate interest in rekindling the relationship this winter.
