Christian Colon is a 2007 right hand hitting middle infielder from Canyon HS, residing in Anaheim Hills, CA. Colon has a strong, compact, small athletic build on a 5'11" 175 lb. frame. He is one of the more polished players in the '07 high school class and he showed it in Fayetteville, where he ranked #5 among PG National Top 100 position players, earning an Aflac All-American selection. Certain players seem to move at a different pace in the game than their peers and Colon is one of them. He rarely looks like he has to put out much effort to excel in any phase of the game, maybe with raw speed being the exception. He just plays with such ease, both at the plate and certainly in the field. As a hitter Colon has plus plus hands. He is a spray line drive hitter with surprising gap power. The ball jumps off his bat well because he accelerates through the ball, not to the ball as most players do. His bat control is also a plus, as he showed he can hit all pitches to all fields. Colon showed the ability to pull the fastball and to sit back and hit the breaking ball hard to right field. He can move a runner or drive in a run, whatever is needed. With a short, compact swing and good bat speed, there are very few strikeouts in his future. Colon could hit anywhere in a line-up and be productive. In the field he is a joy to watch. Colon is as smooth and polished as any middle infielder in the '07 high school class, including Justin Jackson. He makes all the plays, to both sides as well as the slow roller. His hands are soft and his release is quick. Colon has a strong arm and a baseball clock ticking that tells him how much time he has and how much he needs to get on a throw. He sets up to the ball well and once the ball is hit his way, everyone in the park figures it is an out. The only real thing to pick at, besides his smallish build is that he is an average runner, with a 4.35 home/1st time and 6.96 60 yard time. However, his speed is playable and usable and his instincts are plus, including on the bases. He is a base stealer without being a burner. Colon has verbally committed to Cal State Fullerton but is also targeted as one of the premier position players for the 2007 draft.
