Bryce Collins, who previously missed time on the mound due to the flu, pitched three innings in his first appearance in over two weeks. He gave up one hit and logged six strikeouts.

“(He) has had a tough 2018 so far with mono and flu, but has stayed positive and will be a major positive for our success,” said Indians coach Jim Ozella.

“His outing today was the next step towards longer and stronger outings. (We’re) excited he is back, and I know he is fired up to contribute with his talents.”

Hart next plays at Saugus on Wednesday, March 21. The Grizzlies (4-3, 0-2) host Valencia on the same day.
