CHRIS COLABELLO RUMORS

Ricky Romero and Chris Colabello: The tale of two careers

Ricky Romero and Chris Colabello are two athletes at the opposite end of the spectrum. Romero, a former Ace and once a potential CY Young candidate, was given his walking papers by the Toronto Blue Jays with $7.5 million remaining on the last year of his contract. His release also ignited a $600,000 buyout of a club option for next year. Colabello, a superb independent league...

Deja Vu: Chris Collabello off to a hot start in 2015

With Toronto’s outfielders dealing with a myriad of issues this season, and with Dalton Pompey being sent down after struggling through the first month, journeyman Chris Colabello found himself up with the big club unexpectedly. All he’s done since that call up came on May 5. After posting a .337 batting average with five homeruns through the first month at AAA, Colabello arrived...

Jays' Colabello making the most of his opportunity

Whenever Chris Colabello drives the ball into the gap I can't help but smile. The long-time Indy standout is back on the radar, this time as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays.  For years Colabello put up numbers, numbers that would make any manager proud. Unfortunately, those numbers were in the Independent Baseball leagues. Indy ball is getting more recognition now than ever...

Back in majors, it seems Colabello's troubles are behind him

MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Colabello hopes he's recaptured the magic that made him one of baseball's best stories in April. Three games into his second stint with the Twins this year, he's on the right track. Colabello has delivered several big hits in a limited time since he was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on July 2, the same day Minnesota put first baseman Joe Mauer on the disabled...

Is Chris Colabello like, good?

I've been getting a lot of **** lately because I haven't written anything Twins related.  Honestly between the one million day games and my two completely insane children I haven't gotten to see that much.  I have seen enough to finally make a post, and why not start with American League RBI leader Chris Colabello? First off history is generally against him given that not many...

Colabello happy to continue playing in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins first baseman Chris Colabello is fluent in three different languages. Korean is not one of them. "Not at all," said Colabello, who speaks English, Spanish and Italian. "One of these days, maybe." There was a chance Colabello would have had to pick up Korean as his third foreign language in order to continue his baseball career. After making his major league debut...

Minnesota Twins: Colabello contributes hot bat to lineup

Target Field While the Minnesota Twins still struggle to see a record above .500, designated hitter and first baseman Chris Colabello has been nothing but determined to help the team reach that goal and a possible chance at postseason. At 30 years old, Colabello was not within immediate eyesight for any Major League roster following school. Graduating from Assumption College in 2005...

Colabello's career day powers Twins past White Sox

Chris Colabello was the International League's Most Valuable Player in 2013, and the longtime minor leaguer turned that into a trip to the majors last year. Despite the success Colabello had at Triple-A Rochester, he wasn't able to replicate it with Minnesota in his first season in the big leagues. Despite batting just .194 in 55 games with the Twins last season, Colabello earned...
