Report: Royals and Christian Colon Agree On Terms

According to Keith Law via @espn_mlbdraft on Twitter, the Royals have agreed to terms with 2010 first round pick Christian Colon.  The reported amount of the signing bonus is “around $2.8 million” which is right around the league’s recommended slot value for the fourth overall pick over the past few years.

Also, it’s reported that Colon will report to High A Wilmington in about ten days.  Currently, the Blue Rocks have Rey Navarro stationed at shortstop after acquiring him from Arizona in early May for Carlos Rosa.

UPDATE: Dayton Moore is denying reports that there’s been a signing, but that the two sides are “getting closer” to an agreement. Bob Dutton suggests such a deal is close.
