After previously expressing concern about the amount of innings Chris Schwinden has logged this season, Terry Collins reversed course after Miguel Batista struggled in Sunday's start. Collins said Schwinden merits a look in the rotation down the stretch over the 40-year-old Batista.

"We ultimately have to take another look at him," Collins said.
