Prospect Colon to miss remainder of season

KANSAS CITY -- Top prospect Christian Colon will likely miss the rest of the season after being hit in the face with a foul ball last week while playing for Triple-A Omaha.

Colon, the team's first-round Draft pick in 2010, was injured by his own foul ball last Monday in Tucson. It was just his fifth game for the Storm Chasers after spending most of the season with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. He was 7-for-17 with a home run and five RBIs for Omaha.

According to Scott Sharp, the Royals' director of Minor League operations, Colon has no vision issues.
