2015

2014

Colabello is the definition of a late bloomer as he went undrafted and played independent ball until he was signed in 2012 by the Twins. He parlayed a strong showing last year for Italy in the World Baseball Classic, where he hit .333 (6-for-18) with two home runs, into an outstanding season at Triple-A. He was named the International League Player of the Year after hitting .352 with 24 home runs and a 1.066 OPS. He struggled when called up the majors, however, hitting just .194 with a .631 OPS. He hit seven home runs and the rebuilding Twins questionably only gave him 181 plate appearances in the majors. Colabello has shown great raw power and a decent walk rate, so he could emerge with a role in the majors at some point, but the fact that he is already 30 years old limits his upside.
