Ike Davis was a late scratch from Saturday's starting lineup due to a bout of food poisoning. In Davis' absence, second baseman Daniel Murphy slid over to first base for the fourth time this season, with Jordany Valdespin manning second.
Collins would like injured shortstop Ruben Tejada to receive at least 20 at-bats at Triple-A Buffalo before the team will consider activating him. Tejada, who has been on the disabled list since May 7 with a strained right quad, entered Saturday with 12 at-bats at Buffalo. Said Collins: "I want to make sure not only that his timing at the plate is in order, but I want his legs in good shape."
