Manager defends Jordany Valdespin

"I don’t answer to fans," Collins said, per the New York Post. "They don’t play this game. They have no idea what goes on. They have no idea what goes on in there, they have absolutely no idea what it means to be a professional teammate at this level. I’ve been doing it a lot longer than a lot of people. He’s fine. He handled it great."

Collins also denied a report indicating Valdespin tried to avoid pinch-hitting Saturday because he knew he would get hit or Valdespin not wanting to bat later in the game after getting hit.

"He didn’t want to hit the second time on Saturday, after he got hit," Collins said. "(His forearm) did swell up. That’s when you walk in that batter’s box and say, 'OK let’s go.' If they threw at him again, we would have answered. If they threw at him we would have answered, there would have been a definitive answer."

Valdespin is hitting 242/.286/.439 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 66 at-bats.
