Unless there's an injury I'm sure he'll get called up when Morneau gets traded.

Who says Morneau gets traded? He'll get the call either way.

I definitely think he'll make an appearance with the Twins at some point this year. he's a terrific person and has the right frame of mind!

I would be shocked if he's not called up at some point this year, tough not to root for him too. One of the nicest people I've had the opportunity to interview. He gave great answers, very humble, loves the game, and works hard, tough not to like the guy.

Tough not to pull for a guy who was ignored for so long as well.

He would be a good bench player if he can hit MLB pitching. No evidence yet that he couldn't do that.

The rosters are the problem for him.

If there were minor league similarity scores, I'm guessing Colabello would be a pretty good match for Randy Ruiz. Ruiz struck out a bit more, but also had more HR power.

I'm guessing Colabello will get a call-up to the Twins like Ruiz did in 2008. Hopefully he has a nice little run like Ruiz did for Toronto in 2009 (10 HR in 115 AB).
