White Sox's Zack Collins: Knocks in two in loss
Collins started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Mariners.Collins made his second straight start and has a home run and five RBI in the two games. He started at catcher Tuesday and gave the hot-hitting Yermin Mercedes a breather at DH on Wednesday.

White Sox's Zack Collins: Shows off power in win
Collins went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.Collins opened up the scoring in the second when he took Nick Margevicius deep to right field to give the White Sox an early 3-0 lead. The 26-year-old later roped a double into the gap in right-center field for the first multi extra-base hit game of his young career. Collins got the start behind the plate in this one while Yasmani Grandal got the night off as he should continue to rotate in and out of the lineup at either catcher or DH.
White Sox's Zack Collins: Starts Opening Day
Collins started at designated hitter and went 0-for-4 in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.Collins got the Opening Day call at DH, a spot that looked like it belonged to Andrew Vaughn all spring. It's unclear if manager Tony La Russa was rewarding Collins for strong spring, or if the manager plans to use the left-handed Collins at DH against right-handers while Vaughn slots in against lefties. Vaughn will make his season debut Friday against lefty Andrew Heaney, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Collins, meanwhile, will catch Lance Lynn on Saturday. That Collins beat out Jonathan Lucroy to be the top backup catcher is a sign the team is pleased with the defensive advancements he's made this spring.
