Royals Select SS Christian Colon at #4


The Royals selected Cal State Fullerton shortstop Christian Colon with the fourth overall pick in the 2010 First-Year player draft.  After recent speculation that they’d select University of Miami catcher Yasmani Grandal (who went #12 to Cincinnati), they were also linked to LHP Chris Sale from Florida Gulf Coast (who went to the White Sox at #13).

Some scouting reports project he’ll stay at shortstop, some say his limited range will force him to move to second base.  He’ll jump above Jeff Bianchi and Rey Navarro once he signs to be the top shortstop prospect in the Royals system.

I’ll have more tomorrow on Colon, and if you were taking part in the Fansided MLB Draft chat this evening, you will know that Wally will definitely want to chime in on this pick.  (I hear he already bought the Pepto Bismol)
