Colon (hand) will start at shortstop and bat seventh in the order for Sunday's Cactus League game against the Cubs, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Colon was removed from a game Wednesday after jamming his right middle finger, but after going 2-of-2 at the dish Friday and Saturday and remaining in the lineup again Sunday, it appears he's feeling just fine. The 27-year-old has enjoyed a strong spring, but with his competitors for the starting second base job, Raul Mondesi and Whit Merrifield, also performing well in Cactus League play, he hasn't created much separation in the job battle.
