Ruben Tejada may get Wednesday off
After Ruben Tejada whiffed three times Sunday, Collins began thinking more seriously about giving his shortstop a breather. That is likely to come in Wednesday's 12:10 p.m. series finale against the Braves. "I told him I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and say it was [Cole] Hamels," he said of his conversation with Tejada. "I also told him don't be surprised if he gets a day off this week."
