"We're going to push the envelope a little bit here in the next couple weeks to try to do as much as we can to get him as ready as possible and then use that extra week to get him playing time," Collins said. "The hardest part is the minor league season doesn't start until the 7th (of April), so he can still get a couple games in before he does report.
