Colon cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday. The 30-year-old saw his first major-league action since 2017 last year, recording three hits in six at-bats with one run and one RBI. Colon will now return to the Triple-A level, where he hit .300/.372/.443 with 10 home runs and 70 RBI in 2019.
Colon's contract was purchased from Triple-A Louisville on Monday. The 30-year-old has 142 big-league games under his belt for the Royals and Marlins, though none have come since 2017. He owns a .252/.315/.315 career slash line with just a single home run. He recorded a .300/.372/.443 slash line in 136 games for Louisville this season (good for a 110 wRC+), though he's unlikely to be anything more than a bench option over the final two weeks of the season.
Colon agreed to a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Colon failed to emerge in the big leagues last season, spending the 2018 campaign at the Triple-A level (98 games). He figures to begin the 2019 season with Triple-A Louisville.
Colon was signed to a minor-league deal by the Mets, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports Friday. Colon was brutal in limited action between the Royals and Marlins last year, with a .160/.236/.180 line in 24 games. The 29-year-old will report to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Colon went 2-for-3 with his first home run of the spring and five RBI in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. The former Royals prospect is in camp on a non-roster invite and should be considered a long shot for the 25-man roster, but Colon's making some noise with a .385/.429/.615 line to begin the spring. If he keeps raking, the 28-year-old could win a big-league utility role -- either with the Braves or another organization willing to take a chance on him.
