We had projected in Thursday’s Independent Baseball Insider column that Colabello could be wearing a Twins uniform for the fourth time this season, and logic would say this will be a longer trial for the first baseman-outfielder. He was 2-for-16 in seven appearances–his first in the major leagues–the first three trips combined.
Fresh from a 1-for-3 game in the Triple-A All-Star Game (although he was shut out in the home run-hitting contest), the seven-year Can-Am veteran (Worcester, MA and Nashua, NH) will bring a season log of .354-24-76, all among International League leaders, with him to Minnesota. He could face another former Indy player, Cleveland lefty Scott Kazmir (Sugar Land, TX, Atlantic League), Friday night.
