Comments
Hitting Ability:Colon is a spray hitter, with ability to make consistent contact and hit to all fields.
Power:He doesn't have much power, though he has shown the ability to hit the gaps on occasion.
Running Speed:His pure speed grades out as average or a tick below.
Base Running:Colon makes the most of what speed he does have with good base-running instincts.
Arm Strength:He has an above-average arm at shortstop.
Fielding:Colon is a very sure-handed and reliable middle infielder.
Range:There are other shortstops with better range, but Colon makes all the plays.
Baseball Instinct:Colon earns the compliment of being termed a real "baseball player" because of his fine instincts on the field.
Physical Description:Colon has a compact body.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:Baseball instincts, defense.
Weaknesses:His bat and lack of projection. Colon is solid in all aspects of the game, but doesn't have a tool that truly stands out.
Summary:Colon came into the season as one of the top high school middle infielders in the class, thanks largely to being named the AFLAC All-American Game MVP, but he has kind of faded, or at the very least seen others pass by him. He doesn’t have any eye-popping tools, but he does have terrific baseball instincts and earns the praise of being a “real baseball player” for the way he goes about his business. It’s quite possible he’ll take that business to college at Cal State Fullerton if he doesn’t get drafted highly.
