Christian Colon: Ending career
Colon is planning to retire, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Colon has been in professional baseball since 2010, and he first reached the majors in 2014. He spent the majority of his career as organizational depth, including 2021 when he played at Triple-A Buffalo. For his career, he logged a .249/.312/.310 line across 418 major-league plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Colon agreed to a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Christian Colon: Leaves affiliated ball
Colon signed a contract with the Kansas City Monarchs of the independent American Association on Thursday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.
Colon will return to the city where he spent the majority of his big-league career. It's possible he figures something out in independent ball and returns to the majors one day, but as a 31-year-old with a career .249/.312/.310 slash line at the highest level, he has probably played his last big-league game....

Reds' Christian Colon: Remains in organization
Colon cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Reds' alternate training site Monday.
Colon struggled with inconsistent playing time in the majors over the start of the season as he hit .130 with a double and two RBI over 23 at-bats. As a result, he was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday, but he'll remain in the organization after he was unable to find a spot on another team's 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: DFA'd by Cincy
Colon was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday.
Colon appeared in 11 games and had a .341 OPS this season, so the Reds opted to remove him from the 40-man roster. The 31-year-old could return to the team's alternate training site if he goes unclaimed on waivers.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Back in lineup
Colon will start Monday's game against Cleveland, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Colon was scratched from Monday's lineup to make room for Joey Votto (illness), but he'll rejoin the starting nine as the designated hitter after Nick Senzel was scratched with a sprained left ring finger. Colon will bat eighth in Monday's contest.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Scratched from lineup
Colon was scratched from the lineup Monday against the Indians.
Colon was initially slated to play first base in the Reds' series opener against Cleveland, but he'll take a seat after Joey Votto (illness) was activated and put in the starting nine. With Votto available once again and Mike Moustakas (forearm) back in the lineup, Colon's playing time should take a significant hit.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Knocks in two runs
Colon went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in a win over the Tigers in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.
Colon gave the Reds some extra cushion with his two-run single in the seventh inning. Prior to Sunday, the 31-year-old had gone hitless in three at-bats this season. At the moment, there's no room for him to get regular playing time in the Cincinnati lineup.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Joins Opening Day roster
Colon had his contract selected by the Reds on Friday and was added to the 30-man roster.
The 31-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invitee and was able to show enough for the team to justify creating room for him on the 40-man roster. Colon appeared in eight games for the Reds in 2019 and spent most of the season at Triple-A Louisville, where he had a .300/.372/.443 slash line in 136 games. He's unlikely to see significant playing time as a reserve infielder.... See More ... See Less

Colon will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.
Colon is not on the 40-man roster but was in camp this year on a minor-league deal. If he plays in the big leagues this year, it would likely be as a bench infielder.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Returning to Reds
Colon signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Saturday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.
Colon spent most of last season with Triple-A Louisville, but he managed to appear in eight games for the Reds at the end of the season prior to being outrighted to Triple-A in November. The 30-year-old hit .300/.372/.443 with 70 RBI and 24 stolen bases with Triple-A Louisville last season, and he'll likely be a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2020.... See More ...

Reds' Christian Colon: Outrighted to Triple-A
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.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Christian Colon: Contract selected by Reds
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.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Christian Colon: Signed to minor-league deal
Colon was signed to a minor-league deal by the Mets, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports Friday.

Braves' Christian Colon: Big day at plate Saturday
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.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Christian Colon: Inks NRI deal with Atlanta
Colon signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Wednesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Robert Murray of FanRag Sports reports.
Colon played in 24 major-league games between the Royals and Marlins this past season, slashing .160/.236/.180 (eight hits in 57 plate appearances). The 28-year-old will look to latch on as a utility infielder with Atlanta for the upcoming season, but may wind up spending a decent amount of time in the minors yet again.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Christian Colon: Clears waivers
Colon cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
The 28-year-old struggled with a .152/.243/.182 slash line in 35 plate appearances after being claimed off waivers by the Marlins in mid-May. The utility infielder provides plenty of defensive versatility, but he didn't flash enough offensively in 2017 to remain on the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Christian Colon: DFA'd on Friday
Colon was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Friday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
With Martin Prado (hamstring) returning from a long stay on the disabled list, Colon was no longer needed as third base depth. The 28-year-old slashed just .152/.243/.182 in 33 at-bats for the Marlins, and carries a combined .160/.236/.180 triple slash in 50 at-bats between Miami and Kansas City this season.... See More ...

Marlins' Christian Colon: Struggles continue with new team
Colon has only three hits in 19 at-bats since joining the Marlins.
The 28-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Marlins in mid May, but the change in scenery has not yet yielded different results. Colon is slashing .167/.211/.194 with zero RBI for the season, and will most likely continue to see only sporadic opportunities with Martin Prado and Adeiny Hechavarria still on the disabled list....
