By on 9/29/2014 11:15:00 AM

The Kansas City Royals defeated the Chicago White Sox in the regular season finale by the score of 6-4. The Royals finish the season with a record of 89-73 and advance to the first round of the playoffs against the Oakland A's tomorrow night. Christian Colon was activated in time for the final game and went 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI.

I reported on September 18 that Colon was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to September 7 with a fractured distal tip of his middle right finger, which occurred when fielding a ground ball at third base

As reported by Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star, Colon entered the game in the fifth inning and hit a go-ahead two-run double.  He rejoined the team on Sunday after three weeks on the DL. Colon got some playing time at the Instructional League, getting 16 at-bats, before returning to the Royals.

Manager Ned Yost was looking more at how Colon would throw the ball from third base. He had the chance to do so in the fifth inning without any problems.

Colon has appeared in 21 games in his first Major League season. He finished the season with a .333 average, five doubles, a triple and six RBI.  In 491 Minor League games, Colon has a batting average of .281 with 37 home runs and 232 RBI.
