Former big leaguer Christian Colón has accepted a coaching position within the Royals’ organization, MLBTR has learned. The recently-retired infielder is expected to open the season on staff with the club’s Double-A affiliate in Northwest Arkansas.
Colón appeared in parts of six MLB seasons over a twelve-year professional career. He’s best known for his playing days in Kansas City. Selected by the Royals with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 draft, he reached the big leagues in July 2014. The right-handed hitting infielder spent the next three-plus years with the Royals, hitting .263/.323/.329 over 348 plate appearances.
Of greatest importance, Colón appeared in the postseason in each of his first two seasons. The Royals won back-to-back American League pennants in 2014-15, claiming a World Series title in the latter season. Colón etched his place in franchise history during that championship run. In his only plate appearance of the 2015 playoffs, he came off the bench to pinch hit in the top of the twelfth inning during Game 5 of the World Series. Colón rapped a go-ahead RBI single to spur a five-run rally that gave Kansas City a 7-2 victory in the Series-clinching contest.
After his playing days in Kansas City ended in 2017, Colón bounced between a few organizations. He suited up for the Marlins and Reds through 2020 before spending the 2021 campaign in the Blue Jays’ system. The 32-year-old announced his retirement last month. In a chat with MLBTR readers shortly thereafter, he expressed a desire to get into coaching at the time. He’ll begin his post-playing career with his original organization, working in a Royals’ farm system that Baseball America ranked as the league’s third-most talented in August.
This is awesome. Glad to see him back in the organization!
Please, Hammer. Don't hurt 'em.
Yeah. It seems like this is exactly what he wanted in the chat. I’m glad he reached the goal he was aiming for.
This just makes me happy.
Hopefully he’s a better coach than he was a player. I remember when they drafted him and thinking, “I hope they don’t regret passing on Chris Sale to pick this guy.” Oy.
Yea I sure hope so too thank you so much for the love and support! Great job
Congrats double C’s!! Much love, the venue in NW Arkansas is beautiful – I’m sure you will flourish with KC’s young talent
Holy brap it’s the man himself
We love you Christian!
CC what’s good son!
A Royal flush for Colon.
Yes! Congratulations Christian and KCR!
This is fantastic! Christian is exactly the caliber of person the Royals need in their organization. I hope he wears Royals blue for many, many years.
Instead of getting a loan, I got my already programmed blank ATM card to withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 1 years.
I am so happy about this because i got mine last week and I have used it to get $50,000.
Mrs Raina is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but
it is something nice and she is not like other people pretending to have the blank ATM cards.
And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours from her i fully recommend her.
Just send her on email email@example.com Or message us on Whatsapp +17605765579
