Pirates Sign Christian Colonel

Not a big deal here, but the Pirates have signed minor league third baseman Christian Colonel to a minor-league deal. Colonel, 29, came up through the Rockies organization, but stalled in Class AAA and bounced around a bunch last year. He hasn't really demonstrated the power necessary to take the next step. The Pirates will have about a thousand infielders at Indianapolis, so I'm guessing Colonel will be at Altoona, backing up Jeremy Farrell at third and perhaps also picking up some at bats in the outfield and at first. Thanks to Pirates Prospects.
