Dillon Gee allowed two hits, including a solo homer byRick Ankiel, in his two innings. But Gee was pleased with his changeup, which he used to strike out Mark Teahen in the first inning and get a double-play comebacker from Andres Blanco in the second. "Usually my changeup takes a while," Gee said. "It hasn't been there until tonight."

Collins said he will play Brandon Nimmo, last year's 13th overall pick, in Tuesday's split-squad game in Port St. Lucie.

Collins watched Zack Wheeler throw Monday. Asked what he liked, Collins replied, "Everything."
