Christian Colonel Demoted to AA

With Lance Zawadzki and Adam Russell recently demoted to make room for Kevin Correia and Everth Cabrera on the San Diego roster, one player had to go from Portland to San Antonio, and the odd man out was infielder Christian Colonel, who was signed a couple of weeks ago.

Colonel batted just .107/.194/.107 in 11 games (28 AB) for Portland, which likely slid him below the surprisingly solid Anthony Contreras on the depth chart.

At 28 and now facing Double-A ball, Colonel is looking at long odds of ever reaching the majors.
