If clubs come into this year's draft with an organizational need for a shortstop that could get to the big leagues in a relatively short period of time, Cal State Fullerton's Christian Colon might be their target. He's considered a potential first-round talent as a solid defender with an above-average bat, particularly for the position.



Colon stands 6-feet tall and weighs in at about 180 pounds and hit .357/.442/.529 as a sophomore, gathering 26 extra-base hits. He doesn't walk much due to his aggressive approach, but that also helps him limit the strikeouts -- he whiffed just 24 times in 2009. So why isn't Colon a Top 10 candidate?
