Royals prospect Colon to have eye examined
KANSAS CITY -- Triple-A Omaha infielder Christian Colon, the Royals' first-round Draft choice in 2010, will have his right eye examined on Monday in Kansas City after being injured by his own foul ball last Monday night at Tucson.

"We're waiting for the swelling to go down. His vision is good and everything seems fine," said Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo.

This is the second injury for Colon this season. A toe injury sustained in a play at home plate while he was with Double-A Northwest Arkansas kept him out of the lineup for about a month.

Colon was playing shortstop and second base for Omaha and was 7-for-17 (.412) in five games. He hit .289 in 73 games at the Double-A level.
