    Joseph Colon went undrafted last year as a third baseman, then moved to the mound and has been firing fastballs at 90-92 mph. The Cubs actually signed the 6-foot-1 righthander in late January, but MLB voided the contract because Colon enrolled at Huertas Junior College, which does not have a baseball program. Colon is raw but has a fresh, loose arm with the makings of a good curveball. He was 88-91 mph at the Excellence Tournament with good sink. His secondary stuff is unrefined.
