The alleged jewel of the Kyle Farnsworth trade, Roman Colon, has been sent to Kansas City for a player to be named later.
Colon has been in the news most recently due to his being charged with felonious assault after a June 12 brawl in the Toledo Mud Hens’ clubhouse.
According to ESPN.com:
Colon’s injury rehabilitation assignment has been transferred from Double-A Erie to Double-A Wichita in the Royals’ organization. In five outings with Erie, Colon was 2-0 with a 5.91 ERA. He also appeared in five games with Toledo and was 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA.
In 32 games with Detroit, Colon went 3-1 with a 5.37 ERA.
Roman, we hardly knew ye. And what we knew, we didn’t like.
Good thing the Tigers asked for that throw-in piece that we know as Zach Miner.
