    • Collins started at designated hitter and went 0-for-3 in Friday's 2-0 win over Cleveland. Collins, who is still looking for his first hit of 2020, found himself in the lineup for a second straight game as as a replacement for the injured Edwin Encarnacion (shoulder). White Sox manager Rick Renteria is hoping Encarnacion, who took dry swings Friday, can elevate to normal work Saturday. That suggests Collins' window of opportunity will close soon. Prior to his two-game run in the starting lineup, Collins had just nine plate appearances.

    • Collins replaced an injured Edwin Encarnacion (shoulder) in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Brewers. He went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts. It's unclear how Encarnacion injured the shoulder; he required medical attention after beating out an infield single in the fourth inning. Collins, who entered as a replacement at designated hitter, will be part of the mix to get at-bats if Encarnacion misses time. Thus far in 2020, Collins is hitless in eight plate appearances.

    • Collins was added to the White Sox's Opening Day roster, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Collins and Yermin Mercedes were in a battle for the same spot, but the White Sox opted for their top pick in the 2016 draft. It came down to Collins' left-handed bat and familiarity with the arms at the big-league level. He also had a productive bat during summer camp, putting into practice a more aggressive plate approach. He'll serve as the third catcher and depth option at first base and designated hitter.

    • Collins went 1-for-2 with a home run in Wednesday's intrasquad game. Collins launched his second home run during summer camp and continues to show the impact bat seen in spring training, when the catching prospect hit a pair of homers and drove in six runs. "His pedigree tells us that's what he's going to do, and he's getting better at it," third-base coach Nick Capra told Scott Merkin of MLB.com of Collins' power. "Obviously, he has a ways to go, but he has some pop in his bat and a good idea what he's doing at the plate." Collins hit 19 home runs, slugged .548 and had a .403 on-base percentage at Triple-A Charlotte in 2019. He'll serve as the White Sox's third catcher in 2020.

    • The White Sox announced Monday that Collins will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool. Since none of the White Sox's minor-league affiliates are expected to have proper seasons in 2020, Collins will join the parent club when it opens its summer training camp Friday. One of four catchers for the Pale Hose, Collins isn't expected to find himself any higher than third on the depth chart with Yasmani Grandal and James McCann locked in as the top two options behind the plate. Collins could also see occasional work as a designated hitter or pinch hitter off the bench.
