Collins said that the team would be keeping a close eye on Tejada in his first game after being hit in the head with a pitch. Tejada never had any after effects from the hit, but Collins was concerned he may be gun-shy in his return.
"I think Ruben, after he came out and sat down and got his bearings, I think he was more scared than he was hurt," Collins said. "You've got to get back in there. He's one of those guys -- he's on the dish. If he's going to continue he's going to stay on the dish because that's where hitters like him need to be. We're going to watch him real close tonight."
