Royals bring up INF Dusty Coleman, demote SS Christian Colon


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2015) The Royals have sent shortstop Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha and promoted fellow infielder Dusty Coleman from the same team, MLB.com has reported.

Colon played sparingly after a stint as a starter in the wake of an injury to Alcides Escobar. A 3-for-22 slide has lowered his average from .286 to .244.

The 28-year-old Coleman should finally receive an opportunity to make his big-league debut, but his promotion might be mistimed. He is in a 2-for-17 slump, though his slash line still stands at a fine .303/.383/.469.


Alcides Escobar returns to Royals' lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Alcides Escobar returned to the Royals' starting lineup on Friday. Escobar was activated from the 7-day disabled list earlier in the day. He will play shortstop and lead off. 

Christian Colon, who started all seven games that Escobar missed, moves to third base to replace Mike Moustakas, placed on the bereavement list earlier in the day. It's the first start Moustakas has missed this season.

Colon will bat ninth. 


Royals SS Alcides Escobar (concussion) remains out Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/7/2015) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar, who is currently on the 7-day concussion list, was not activated before Thursday's game against the Indians. However, Escobar could be nearing a return, as he took grounders before the game, according to MLB.com, which could determine if he is cleared to return to the lineup. 

Christian Colon will continue to be the starting shortstop until Escobar is ready to come back.


Colon in, Escobar out at shortstop for Royals on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4/30/2015) Perhaps unsurpisingly, Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar was not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Tigers. Escobar left Wednesday's game against the Indians after being hit by a pitch in the face and has been diagnosed with a left cheek contusion.

Christian Colon made the start at shortstop on Thursday. Colon has had limited playing time in 2015 and is hitting .269 (7 for 26) with a double and a stolen base.

Left fielder Alex Gordon will move up to the leadoff spot in the lineup for the first time this season. Escobar has been the Royals' leadoff hitter in all but two games in 2015. Gordon is currently ranked ninth in the American League with a .413 on-base percentage. 

Escobar is hoping to return to the Royals lineup on Friday or Saturday, according to the Kansas City Star


Royals' Lorenzo Cain back in lineup Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain is back in the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Twins.

Cain was given his first game off Monday and will be back in the No. 3 spot to face Twins lefty Tommy Milone. He has hit .500/.583/.850 in 20 at-bats against left-handers this season.

Second baseman Omar Infante is out of the lineup Tuesday as expected. Christian Colon draws the start at second base and will bat ninth.

The Royals are favorites (-145) at home Tuesday.


Alcides Escobar out of Royals' Sunday lineup


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is not in the team's lineup for Sunday's game. Escobar was questionable with a sore knee.

He'll be replaced in the lineup by Christian Colon, who will bat eighth. 


Royals send down Fuentes, add Calixte for infield depth


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) The Royals recalled infielder Orlando Calixte and optioned outfielder Reymond Fuentes down to Triple-A Omaha, per the Kansas City Star. Calixte began the minor-league season with a .154 batting average (4 for 26) with two walks, three runs scored, a double, a home run and an RBI in seven games.

The move gives Kansas City infield depth after Alcides Escobar went down with a left knee sprain and contusion. Christian Colon got the start at shortstop in Escobar's place on Saturday. 


Royals' Yost: Christian Colon 'absolutely' favorite for backup role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Royals manager Ned Yost said Tuesday that second basmean Christian Colon is "absolutely" the favorite for the team's backup infielder role, the Kansas City Star reports.

Colon has excelled this spring, going 9 of 20 with one double and four walks.
