Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Slugs fourth homer
Collins went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Royals.
Making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Collins took Brady Singer deep in the third inning for his fourth homer in only 73 big-league plate appearances this season. The 27-year-old's .212/.288/.455 slash line is less impressive, however, and playing time could be hard for him to come by with top prospect Gabriel Moreno also set to join the Blue Jays this weekend -- assuming Collins isn't the player optioned back down to make room....

Collins was called up by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Collins appeared in 20 games earlier in the year, showing a bit of power but not much else, as he hit .194/.278/.387 while striking out 40.6 percent of the time.

Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Sits for third straight game
Collins remains on the bench for the third straight game Tuesday against the Yankees.
Collins has had a regular role at times this season but may be falling out of favor. He still owns a 115 wRC+ through 15 games, the product of a .222/.288/.444 slash line, but his 39.0 percent strikeout rate casts doubt on how long he'll be able to remain effective. Alejandro Kirk will be the designated hitter Tuesday, with Tyler Heineman starting behind the plate.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Out of lineup against lefty
Collins is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Remains on bench
Collins sits for the third straight game Monday against the Yankees.
Collins appeared to be moving into a regular role in the latter half of April, starting 10 out of 14 games from April 15 through April 29. Since then, he's been on the bench for three straight contests. While he's homered three times in 12 games, he's also striking out at a 41.3 percent clip, so it's no surprise the Blue Jays are looking to other options. Tyler Heineman will be the catcher Monday while Alejandro Kirk serves as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less

Collins stayed hot in this one, launching a solo shot off Nathan Eovaldi in top of the second inning before adding a single in the eighth frame.

Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Gets fourth consecutive start
Collins will start at designated hitter and will bat fifth Tuesday against the Red Sox.
Teoscar Hernandez's (oblique) recent move to the injured list has allowed both Collins and fellow catcher Alejandro Kirk to pick up steady playing time of late. With Kirk handling catching duties for the third game in a row, Collins will pick up his third straight start as a DH and fourth consecutive start overall. Collins went 6-for-11 with a home run, two doubles and a walk over the past three contests and should be rewarded with steady at-bats while he's wielding a hot bat and while Hernandez is sidelined....

Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Belts first homer as Jay
Collins went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the A's.
Getting the start at designated hitter and batting sixth, Collins went back-to-back with Matt Chapman in the sixth inning to tie the game at 5-5, only for the Blue Jays' bullpen to falter in the ninth. Collins' bat has come alive in this series, as he's gone 5-for-8 through two games against Oakland, with Saturday's homer being his first of the season. As long as he keeps hitting, manager Charlie Montoyo will likely keep finding a way to get Collins into the lineup at DH or behind the plate.... See More ... See Less
