Worth noting

Collins has not drawn up his lineup for next month's Las Vegas exhibition games just yet, but he knows David Wright, Curtis Granderson and Travis d'Arnaud will all attend the games. "I'm a true believer in making sure we bring the proper amount of starters," Collins said, referencing Major League Baseball's often-violated mandate that teams bring at least four starting position players on all spring road trips. Second baseman Daniel Murphy, whose wife is expecting a baby boy in April, will not attend the trip.
