The Miami Marlins are very depth needy in the infield as both Miguel Rojas and Adeiny Hechavarria are both on the disabled list. So besides promoting a prospect, they acquired Christian Colon off waivers from the Royals.
Christian Colon will be the latest addition to the Marlins infield as the team added veteran infielder Mike Aviles just days ago. Christian Colon was designated for assignment by the Royals last week after posting a terrible .176 average in 7 games this season.
Christian Colon will be joining the Marlins as a bench piece. Christian Colon will be splitting time with starting shortstop J.T. Riddle until Adeiny Hechavarria returns from his DL stint.
