WASHINGTON -- Terry Collins did not name a starter for Dillon Gee on Saturday, but if you listened closely to his pregame press conference Tuesday, you came away with the distinct impression Miguel Batista and not Matt Harvey would be facing the Dodgers.

At one point, Collins said Batista would be available in the bullpen through Saturday, after which he must be in starting mode.

Stay tuned.
